Good job, Linda.

Anyone who this might have worked on is already sick to death of the tens of millions you've spent trying to buy the Senate seat, and it will only piss off your conservative supporters even more than that commercial did.

No.
 
2012-11-05 03:19:54 PM  
part of her business is knowing how to get the "cheap pop"
 
2012-11-05 03:31:33 PM  
She had to have those designed, printed, addressed and mailed out targeting specific neighborhoods...I wonder how long her team was planning that stunt.
 
2012-11-05 03:56:39 PM  
no matter what she says, you know she is only going to turn heel once she gets elected
 
2012-11-05 04:05:18 PM  
Yeah, but you just KNOW when the election is over and she's sharing a stage with Obama suddenly Romney's music will start playing and Linda will hit Obama with a chair, tearing off her pantsuit to reveal an elephant-skin leot...oh mah GAWD, King, that's her skin! THAT'S HER SKIN!

Exactly... and it isn't like she couldn't have made these say "If you are going to vote for Obama, choose the independent line and also vote for McMahon", since this is basically trying to pull votes from straight dem voters. Obviously, these are being sent to very specific voters that she knows will vote for Obama.

The McMahon campaign says she's still backing Romney.

2012-11-05 05:38:30 PM  
With polls showing McMahon trailing Democratic candidate Chris Murphy heading into Tuesday - and also showing Connecticut remains a very blue state when it comes to presidential politics - McMahon has reached out to Obama voters a lot lately

She's behind and a Republican in Connecticut! And I guess she has no morals at all.

Well, 80 million, thus far. I'm sure she'll round out that 100 million when she runs against Malloy for Governor in 2014.

For 100 million, she should have hired better debate coaches. I don't think she said a single sentence that wasn't prepared ahead of time, and her delivery was atrocious. She comes off as the alpha version of Romneybot, who's only glimmer of humanity was her (softened for the camera) biatchiness.

I just died inside.

I have to give her credit though. She's been running these Obama + me ads for two weeks now that I've seen, and I just blew my in-laws mind when I told them that this is what she is doing. She targeted her audience well with the TV spots and mailings.

They'll still vote for her. Job creators are infallible.
 
2012-11-05 07:47:03 PM  
makes sense to me. Obama is the best traditional Republican candidate we've had in two generations

Honest answer, depending on if you have good relations with your printer and have someone in house who can design it (hey, 20 year old intern who knows Photoshop, get over here, grab some stock photos off Google and from the campaign file and get to work) you can turn it around in 48 hours easy.

Registered voters, what party they're registered to, where they're registered, and how likely they are to show up to the polls is public knowledge. Any major party campaign - especially at the national level in a tight race - has a database (add into that database phone and door knock results, plus other indicators of whether you lean right or left if you do it right). Any major party campaign can probably select targeted demographics and have a mailing list to send to the printer (or to print on labels to hand off to volunteers, correctly formatted) within an hour (depending on how fast your printer takes if you're printing the labels yourself).

Someone with that much money likely has an inflated ego so goddamn big that they couldn't take the brutally honest advice a debate coach would offer. And if they're throwing a bunch of money at someone, that person is also likely to be less apt to give that brutally honest advice.
