Tea Party Republican Sharron Angle is slipping in the polls against Democrat Harry Reid for the US Senate in Nevada and so naturally she’s playing the race card.
Angle has released two 30-second ads depicting sneaky “Mexicans” infiltrating our country to steal our jobs and go to college, and Reid supports them.
“They took our jobs.”
These ads harken back to George H.W. Bush’s “Willie Horton” and “Revolving Door” ads that severely crippled Michael Dukakis during the 1988 presidential race.
While that worked for Bush, I think we’ve come a long way since then, and I don’t think this type of race baiting will play for Angle like it did Bush.
Check out the ads and tell me what you think.
Here’s the Willie Horton from 1988.
