There are three classes of voters: the choir; the unrepentant and irredeemable; and those who can be saved. If enough sinners can be brought to Jesus, so to speak, and the members of the choir sing harmony from the same sheet of music, Democrats win. If those who can be saved are written off as worthless independents, they sup with the tea party and vote accordingly.
What with the funeral dirge music, and the acid trip black hole, this commercial is fairly awful. Given her complete misunderstanding of what an ‘elephant in the room” actually means, this ad starts bad and goes quickly to worse. And yes, Jami Barrett is absolutely correct about the dog whistling. But objectively speaking, it’s just generic bad. Poor speech, lack of substance. Lies and poor production.

If you go back and look at history, farmers started many movements, the non partisan league in North Dakota for example, and to this day North Dakota still has a state owned bank and a state owned grain mill, that produces Dakota made flour. Basically farmers had to be progressive in order to survive. They sell raw materials, not finished goods, and they sell their product at whatever the market gives them, they have or had no negotiating power. Frankly I’m rooting for these guys, because with insurance your darned if you dont and your damed if you do. Frankly I think the insurance industry has gotten way too greedy in this country, and there is something wrong in American when if you get sick you go bankrupt. Kinky Friedman said it best the other night, “the Republican healthcare plan is you die, get a tag for your toe, and Obama basically wanted a bowling trophy”. That left all of the rest of us out here to get screwed.
