Awesome new TV ad attacks free-spending Dem senator

Stand-by for the most enjoyable 30 seconds you will spend today sitting upright. Generation Opportunity, which seeks to reach young adults, has produced a terrific new TV commercial that makes the fiscal problems of the nation – normally a dry and abstract topic – vividly real. A nonpartisan nonprofit group backed by the Koch Brothers, this group could really make a difference if it continues its creative approach.

Alexandra Jaffe writes in The Hill:

The ad, shared first with The Hill, shows a young woman pushing a Landrieu look-a-like around a grocery store in a shopping cart. The politician greedily grabs items off the shelves, munching cookies and hoarding goods as the young woman admonishes, “I told you, we can’t afford that!”

“Washington politicians, like Sen. Mary Landrieu, have a spending problem. They’re wasting money they don’t have, and sticking our generation with the bill,” a narrator says in the ad.

When a cashier finally rings up all of the groceries, the sum comes out to $800,000 — an 18-year-old’s share of the national debt, per a Budget Committee analysis — and the Landrieu stand-in dismisses it: “She’s got it.”

“No,” the young woman says, “pay for it yourself.”

The narrator then urges viewers to “tell Mary Landrieu that’s our money — stop wasting it.”

The ad is backed by a $450,000 TV buy and at least $100,000 online.

Here it is:

As far as I am concerned, things go better with Kochs.
