Stronger visuals needed in this campaign ad!

President Obama’s latest campaign ad, “Important,” attacks Romney on women’s health issues. 

While the ad’s message definitely resonates, this Politico in Stilettos would have implemented stronger visual elements to reaffirm the message that, if elected, Mitt Romney would drag the progressive voice of women today by their ponytails back to the 1950s. 

Why is this ad showing women speaking in front of stereotypical 1950’s locations like a house or in what appears to be a kitchen? If you’re going to say Romney would drag us back, have a female CEO say that on camera. Show the images of what life was like for women in the ‘50s. Have the female CEO say how she is so appreciative for women like her mother to have paved the way so she could be where she is today, and how Planned Parenthood was there for her and she will fight to ensure it’s there for her daughter. Taking away a woman’s right to choose is unacceptable, Romney’s plan to demolish Planned Parenthood is unacceptable and Romney as President is utterly unacceptable. 

Also, what’s up with the name? Yes, this is a significantly “important” issue to women, but let’s put a little more thought in to it. 

Make no mistake about it, I am NOT bashing the President at all. I just think his campaign ad firm should have put a little more thought into this ad.

50 Shades of… Raese? Hardly!

I cannot help but assume the New York Times bestseller “50 Shades of Grey” must have had some influence on John Raese and his campaign team. On the second-time Republican U.S. Senate candidate’s website homepage, there are two videos. The top YouTube video, which is lengthy at 3:39, has shots featuring the candidate’s butt and crotch area in a pair of light denim jeans.

Does the man who thinks "We need 1,000 laser systems put in the sky” have poll results that say he needs to target a certain female age demographic? Did he and his campaign team feel that hopping onto the 50 Shades “Mommy Porn” wave would move numbers? Does he actually think West Virginians will find his derriere appealing? 

Trying to put myself in Raese’s alligator Gucci loafers...

Nope, can’t picture it. Slow that twitching palm and keep on dreaming Raese.

No 2 Manchins About It!

There won’t be two “Manchins” appearing on the primary ballot this election cycle, as House of Delegates member Tim Manchin, Senator Joe Manchin’s cousin, bowed out of the race.

McKinley, a freshman Republican member of the House of Representatives may not have any challengers right now, but he may end up with opposition in the General Election.

Since congressional redistricting was shot down by the Supreme Court, McKinley could oppose Shelly Moore Capito this coming November.
