We Love the Smell of Desperation in the Morning
Our guest columnist is Conservatives4Palin, which raised $6,500 to broadcast this ad in Iowa today. (The production cost was presumably a pizza for an organizer’s nephew.) If we were cruel, we would point out that while the Iowa caucuses welcome walk-ins, filing deadlines have already passed for New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida, and Missouri. But we’re above that sort of thing.
Your contributions have made it possible for us to run the Palin reconsider television ad next week in the Sioux City, Iowa market. Thanks to everyone who chipped in to make it possible.
You’ll be able to see the ad that will be shown on televisions on KCAU-TV across the Sioux City, Iowa market on this blog and on youtube when it goes up next week. If you have any ideas on how to get this story more attention, let us know and feel free to push it yourself to people who may be interested. The target date for this ad going up is now November 29th as the Thanksgiving holidays pushed our initial target date of November 28th back. At the very latest, we expect to get it up on the Sioux City market on the 30th.
What we do next after the television ad goes up is a more difficult question. If this ad is able to build some momentum for the Governor, the best way to keep that momentum going may be to commission a national GOP primary poll that includes the Governor as one of the options. We’ll see if it’s possible given our resources. We’re open to other ideas but the greatest challenge may be that time is running short for her to reconsider.
