Local Ad Pokes Fun at Wisconsin Senators
Reported by: Alex Shabad
It's gone from a state-wide search to a city-wide joke.
The 14 runaway Wisconsin senators probably never knew they'd be part of a marketing campaign called "Hideaway in Rockford."
"In the video you never find anyone who's a senator but you do find people getting away from the work place world" says John Groh, President of the Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.
It's meant to highlight "getaway spots" and deals at restaurants, sporting events.
And of course, the clock tower where the senators first arrived.
"Its very very cute, a way of turning lemons into lemonade." says Dwight Hophauf, GM of Clock Tower Resort.
Even Rockfords own Cheap Trick" guitarist Rick Nielsen showed off a hiding spot.
"Ive been hiding out here 40 or 50; I don't even remember how many years. says Nielsen.
And while one state continues to search for them, another nearby city is just glad they stopped by.
The clock tower has definitely taken advantage of the national spotlight with several new specials, and who knows maybe this latest campaign will give them an extra boost.
Local radio host mentioned the pussy democrat senators as “flee-baggers”.
Good on ‘em!
I see the Tea Party smoked the fleebaggers out in Havard only to have the cops called:
There’s a funny ad on radio it sounds like an amber alert and goes on and on. Club for growth put it on.
If you want to find the missing Democrats, ask a local hooker where they are. They’ll know.
Rockford needs to send invitations to every state senator and representative in every state inviting them to “Hideaway in Rockford”, get the hotels to offer “special fleebag discounts”, have the bars come up with a few new drink specials, etc. It would be picked up by the national media who would have a ball with it!
Rockford could sponsor a “Find The Fleebags” contest - similar to an old SNL skit’s “Find The Pope In The Pizza” contest [w/ Father Guido Sarducci] ...
How about advertising a free meal or prize? The cops do it all the time to catch criminals or people with arrest warrants.
That would be a gay male hooker or transvestite.
I heard that Senator Lena Taylor is taking care of all the so called men's, needs.
DemonRat Senators: Fleebaggers
Union Hippie Scum: Fleabaggers
Awesome. Makes me want to put Rockford on my list of places to live if I ever moved.
The watch tower can now claim to be Flea free.
Someone should round up a bus load of “hookers” and put them up at the Clock Tower. Might be a good way to trap a “RAT” or at least send ‘em scurring.......
They might be hanging out at a local Flea market. Couldn't hurt to look.
I am wondering JUST WHO IS PAYING ALL THESE HOTEL BILLS?
That ad is for democrat Bob Werch (Wirch?) to get back to work. He’s in a 50-50 split district, roughly. There has been a formal recall process started to recall him because of this.
flee-baggers that needs to stick.
