A Dem political ad conservatives could learn from

While stomping in Massachusetts for Martha Coakley and against Scott Brown, President Obama was comfortable going after Brown despite admitting, "I don't know his record."

Truth be told, I don't know much about the Democrat candidate for Lt. Governor who won the Illinois Primary last week and stepped down today because of a just discovered scandal. While admitting I know little about Scott Lee Cohen (I was busy deciding which IL Republicans to vote for), I am quite comfortable patronizing the political commercials campaign that helped get him elected. In fact, I believe one commercial in particular could make a great conservative teaching tool:
In the election for Lieutenant Governor of Illinois, Scott Lee Cohen stands out from the crowd. Other candidates talk about the economy, but Democrat Scott Lee Cohen is doing something about it right now. Scott is holding job fairs to help Illinois families get back to work.

In the mind of a liberal, I suppose a politician holding a job fair is really doing something constructive (as if there are not enough headhunters and employment agencies out there already). The reality of course is that sponsoring job fairs and connecting a lucky few with an employer does not create any new jobs, and for that, we need permanent tax breaks for businesses.

Scott is not a career politician.

In other words, Barack Obama and fellow Democrats are not really career politicians, just community organizers fighting for the little guy.

He is a small business owner...

In other words, sounds like Democrats are starting to identify with the problems of small business owners; kind of like Republicans have been doing all along.

... and the founder of Rod Must Resign, a citizens group that fought to remove Rod Blagojevich from office.

In other words, a Democrat is willing to throw a fellow Democrat under the bus if he needs to distance himself from the unpopular crook.

Vote Democrat, Scott Lee Cohen for Lt. Governor. "I'm Scott Lee Cohen and I approved this message."

In other words, "I'm a lifetime Democrat politician and I'm not happy with this message."
