this ad from the NRSC is simply devastating.

Ah-ha! That was a political kick in the nuts!
" If that runs in VA, that's going to sting. "
She compares this to fighting the terrorists????
I agreed with Webb. Tailhook was a witch hunt. I don't think this ad will harm him at all, especially among military types. Don't like the GOP using feminist sounding commercials one bit.
the DUmmies are nuts.
Did you listen to the RNC video ?
the pedophilia passage has finished him
I don't think I've seen it yet
Please listen to the second video.
it is short and powerful
Perhaps, and I hope so. I was commenting on the lame GOP ad, the 2nd youtube video on this page.
R strategist is smart...saying she doesn't know if the voters of VA should make a decision on this info, but that they deserve to know the info.
Just watched it ... OUCH!!
Actually, I found the ad was an example of the Republicans trying to out-PC the Democrats. Tailhook may well have been a witchhunt (that expanding the accusations beyond those who were clearly guilty), as I don't believe there were any final findings, and the feminists were quick to overdramatize it. There have certainly been loose women who have had their wished indulged in at naval academies. And what conservative wants women in combat roles?!
If that is 1806, then I will take that over what we have today.
I understand the strategy, but it is a cynical strategy and I don't like it.
nice timing for us
These Dummiecrats love to dish it out, but they squeal like stuck pigs when we fight back. It's a beautiful thing to behold ...
" OUCH!! "
That ad is aimed at Democratic women.
The tailhook part doesn't matter. It's the "horny woman's dream" comment that might stick.
You have a good point
Tailhook was a wich hunt
Funny how Webb and the strategists are screaming foul, smear tactics, Americans aren't concerned about these kind of dirty politics! This Foley thing seems to have backfired. Yet another good snicker ;D!
"The Naval Academy is a horny woman's dream"??
Ecch. This goes beyond "feminism". I knew Webb was a macho man but this comment is way improper. There are young women buried in the cemetery of the US Naval Academy. There are funerals almost daily for young women who have died in military service to America.
Depends on where he said it. If he said it to a drinking buddy and it was overheard, its fine with me. If he said it in an official position, then his judgement disqualifies him
" This Foley thing seems to have backfired.
Yet another good snicker ;D! "
Remember the skanks that were going after the navy over tailhook? Allen should not be hitching his wagon to that crap.
On this good news, I'm going to lunch. Later ;D!
Thanks for the visit.
The Republicans are sending out some great ads- Ford's "call me " and now this.
On the MSNBC clip the Democrat woman is clearly distressed and the Republican woman is calm and serene which speaks volumes.
MSNBC says that McCain's book blurb is dispensation for Dirty Jim's writings. Desperately trying to move on.
Hard to look at Webb for too long-he's more Botoxed than Kerry.
Perhaps, but see post 29.
Ah, so hyprocrisy is A-OK with you. Tell the truth to your drinking buddies as long as you cover your beliefs when you speak to the public.
If the boss says you're a great asset to his company and then goes to a bar and tells his drinking friend you are an idiot, you're OK with having him for a boss.
How did this creep Webb ever get to serve in Reagan's Administration...a mole perhaps?
Bad analogy. Here's a better one: Boss tells the me & the rest of the employees at a company meeting to watch ourselves because sexual harrassment will not be tolerated.
Then later, he tells me over a beer that the secretary is a delicious babe.
I don't think for one nanosecond that anyone thinks the Republicans are trying to appear as feminists. On the other hand, a Democrat woman who was leaning toward Webb is likely quite pissed off right now, and will not like what she sees on that commercial. All we need to do is dislodge a few thousand Democratic women.
Webb is a pervert.
Allen was going to win without running this NOW-ish ad. It's ill advised.
He wrote about the "horny women's dream" in a magazine article.
And here's a little inside baseball: he also lied to the women he wrote about to get them to open up to him about the sex that was going on. They were naive and trusted him.
Webb is a snake. He's another Bill Clinton, an ego in a suit who will do or say anything to get ahead. In other words, a perfect Democrat. I hope Allen cleans his clock.
That may all be true. But running an add that sounds like Gloria Steinem wrote it ain't gonna help.
I agree with you, but my guess is that this isn't going to run on Monday night football. More likely daytime TV (like Oprah) in urban areas. You can really do some fine targeting with cable these days.
It's a debatable strategy (and the debate continues to rage among consultants), but undercutting your opponents base is a really useful tool.
However, I'm beginning to see the devastating effect if this guy was elected with his military background.
He would be a huge thorn in Pres. Bush's side.
Please Virginia...DON'T ELECT THIS CREEP!
Actually, it may. It's aimed at moderate women, and could be enough to turn them away from Webb. Never underestimate the Oprahfication of the average soccer mom. "He made me feel bad" may turn off a few men, but not enough for them to vote Dem. On the other hand, that the kind of stuff will be lapped up like Haagen Daz by your average mushy middle female.
And if Allen can successfully separate the women from Webb, he's got it in the bag.
Excerpt from a Nov 2 2005 interview Webb gave to the "San Diego Union Tribune":
The Scots-Irish voted with the Democrats from Andrew Jackson to Vietnam. Since Vietnam, they've increasingly voted Republican. The Democrats appear not to quite get this. Can the Democrats win another national election or regularly win them unless they somehow reconnect with this culture that you write about?
They cannot. This cultural group is very much in play. Except for the Christian Right, which is based in this cultural group, it is not directly aligned with either party. But it has tended to vote Republican more because people like Karl Rove, I think, have understood the emotional buttons. But in terms of tangible socioeconomic benefits, it has not benefited by the presidencies of the last three or four presidents. The problem with the Democrats is that they got away from the Jacksonian message. The Democrats used to be the party where people went when they needed a voice on the national level. You cannot develop a national strategy based on group rights, minority rights, you can't do it. The Democrats need to understand that and get back to what they used to do.
Are you interested in running for political office?
I have been talking to people about running for the Senate next year against George Allen, as a Democrat from Virginia. I have a very good life. I'm not sure that I'm going to do that or not but I have been talking to people. Thinking about it.
Not Democrat women. Democrat women are the base of the Democrat party. They are immovable. This is targeting Republican and independent women who have voted for Allen in the past and are wavering on voting for him this year. Allen is only interested in getting people who have voted for him before to do so again, because that will mean he has won re-election.
