First Pro/Con Morse Ads Hit The Air

Here's the new ad up in Colorado Springs supporting Senate President John Morse, reportedly a $70,000 initial buy giving it solid penetration in that media market:

Dudley Brown's National Association for Gun Rights responds–The Denver Post's Lynn Bartels notes that Brown had originally forsworn spending money on this recall–with their own ad hammering Morse's ties to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Sources tell us the buy for this ad is much smaller, around $30,000:

These are just the first of what's expected to be a saturation onslaught of ads in both Morse's and Sen. Angela's Giron's districts all the way through recall election day, September 10th. We'll post them as we get word of them, and do our best to keep a running tally of spending on both sides.

    Morse doesn't even mention guns in his ad. What a joke.

      It's not unusual for a sitting State Senator to avoid small time wedge issues when campaigning.

      While it's true 7-8% of his constituants are gun whacks, and a good percentage will blindly vote against him 'cause they hate "evil Guvmint" and don't realize a redleg opponent will invariably rob them blind if elected, his job is to represent his Senate District in its' entirety. Honest citizens, gun nuts, goobers, everybody. No matter what dudley told you.

      Not a joke, just the correct way to do business.

        He's avoiding the reason for the recall. That's very different. You know that.

        • roccoprahn says:

          Actually, no.

          When the bullshit's stripped away, the recall is aout a small fringe element, backed by a corrupt redleg SOS and AG, wasting taxpayer money by forcing a vote on a State Legislator for…………..get this…………….casting a legal vote as Senate President, in Chambers, during Session, that the extreme fringe element didn't like.

          The "recall" sets a nasty, dangerous precedent, in that a Law Maker may now be distracted from his job, by kooks, as punishment for executing his assignment as a law maker……which is to pass laws.

          Democratic Republic be damned in teabagville. Senate and House Majority be rendered insignificant.

          Thank God you idiots are the few..

      That's because he wasn't taking anyone's guns, Cletus. The joke is that you're still wetting your pants over it.

      • ModeratusModeratus says:

        Then why doesn't he say so? Why is he dodging the issue?

        This recall is about guns. Morse needs to own up to what he did. If you guys are right, he has nothing to fear, so why not take the issue by the horns?

        • Curmudgeon says:

          He can't own up to something he didn't do. What the NRA and their gun-sucking, mouth-breathing acolytes say is a lie. Do you still have your boom-stick? What are you cryin' about? 

          He's not dodging an issue if he didn't do it. He doesn't have to dignify a lie.

          • ModeratusModeratus says:

            I didn't say anything about "taking guns." The bills are bad enough as they are, and worth recalling Morse over on their own. Morse infringed on our constitutional rights, and that's why Democrats signed the petition too.

      actually, he talks about protecting kids.   Making it harder to murder them en masse with 100=round assault gun magazines strikes me as a good start for protecting kids.  By comparison, the Dudsters ad just plain sucks, with production values that would make You Tube blush.


      • Diogenesdemar says:

        "Production values" … huh?  It's Colorado Springs for chrissakes — know your audience … !!!

        You got a guy named Dudley fronting an ad targeted to a bunch of nutters, the majority of whom believe that the entire universe was created in six literal days, that jebus and them dozen apostles rode on the backs of dinosaurs, and that they're all constitutionally guaranteed the right to possess a take-home six-pack of tactical nukes …

        IMHO, anything much beyond simple stick figures would be totally lost on that audience, and too highbrow by at least half!!!

    • DavidThi808DavidThi808 says:

      Morse did exactly the right thing. Never let your opponent control the subject of the discussion. Playing defense loses.

      He talked about why you should vote for him. Exactly what he should do.

    This is going to be good.  Democracy in action.  What a hokey ad bringing in the evil Bloomberg.  The gun masturbators will no doubt try to associate Morse with the evil Soros next.  Bring it on you limp dick pricks.
