Posted on 04/02/2008 8:08:38 AM PDT by SmithL
Doug Ose's 4th Congressional District campaign is running a new television ad central to one of Ose's themes that rival Tom McClintock is a more profound political carpetbagger than he is.
The ad shows a narrator walking an oversized California map from McClintock's Thousand Oaks-area state Senate district to the 4th District near Sacramento. Ose appears at the end of the ad.
The following is the text of the ad and analysis by Peter Hecht of the Bee's Capitol Bureau.
NARRATOR: For 22 years, Tom McClintock has been representing Los Angeles in the Legislature. But now term limits are forcing him out. So he's shopping for a new job. At first he was going to run for Congress here, in L.A. And then he thought about running in the Bay Area. Finally he rolled into our congressional district in Northern California, over 400 miles from home. That's a mighty big stretch to run for office.
OSE: I'm Doug Ose, I was born and raised in Northern California and I approved this ad.
ANALYSIS: The reality is that both McClintock and Ose are outsiders to the 4th District.

The last refuge of a RINO when he can’t win on beliefs, issues and intellect.
You brobably won't abbreciate my comment.
Where does Nancy Pelosi originate from? How about Barbara Boxer? So, now two republicans are getting into a pissing contest about where the other is from, and no one gives a damn about the carpetbagger dimocRATS. This is pathetic.
I wonder what their editorials said when Arkansas grifter Shrillary peddled her "listening tour" in New York. I wonder if the word "unseemly" was ever used in describing her carpetbagging.
Wasn’t Ose running for the seat now occupied by Dan Lungren?
Not only that, but Ose’s ads cast aspersions on McClintock’s conservative credentials. They’re pathetic. Anyone who knows anything about McClintock has to be laughing their butts off. He’s the poster child for true conservatism and everyone knows it.
McClintock Ping List.
Please freepmail me if you want on or off this list
This doesn’t make sense. Isn’t Ose’s territory originally in the Davis area?
It’s certainly not in the hills I live in where Doolittle was the man.
Neither Ose nor McClintock have any genuine physical connection with the 4th district.
At least it’s not Hillary!
Their going to have a tough time against Charlie Brown.
He lost last time.
I know he did. But he is HEAVILY financed by the Dems. Howard Dean wants this district BAD.
It’s a conservative district. The only problem is its weird shape which includes Tahoe and Reno which like most cities seems to lean liberal.
Charlie brown said something stupid during the last race but I can’t remember what it was.
Charlie Brown is an idiot. But it would be a big mistake to take his defeat for granted. Why do you think McClintock is in this race? Doolittle made this district vulnerable.
