Hey Mitt, perhaps your ad men might want to take a look at the ads put out by my personal hero Allen West. One of two black Republican Congressmen, he was redistricted into a much less Republican district and was thought to be easy pickings for his Democrat opponent. Instead, West is clobbering Patrick Murphy, and is now leading by eleven points. How did he do it? Because he knows what he believes in and he fights for his beliefs. Conviction and honest emotion go a long way in politics, along with a verbal hard right to the kidneys every now and then:
Too many Republicans act as if hard campaigning is beneath them. Fortunately, Allen West understands that such an attitude is an almost sure path to electoral defeat. Oh, and the pro-abort Murphy? He has run such classy ads as one depicting West in boxing gloves hitting white women. Refusing to fight back against such an onslaught is not noble but stupid. Take heed Mitt.
