Now, I'm probably biased, but wow, that's a bad commercial. She accepted money from
Matt reminds everyone of the Kennedy attacks on Wetterling here and at Publius. So, obviously we're just running the 2004 campaign again. Is is going to work?
My guess is no, since Kennedy seems to be getting more challenge from his ad than kudos...
The funding the Kennedy campaign objects to is from Emily's List, a group that supports Democratic female candidates by bundling thousands of contributions from donors across the country. Emily's List is one of the nation's largest grass-roots campaign networks and is a fairly traditional source of funding for female candidates across the country.
The Klobuchar investments the ad mentions are her holdings in mutual funds. She previously has said she picked among her employers' mutual fund offerings on the basis of risk and other factors and does not track which stocks make up the multitude of her funds.
When Kennedy brought up the investments in a debate earlier this month, Klobuchar said, "You are running an ad saying you want to go after the oil companies, when, in fact, you have taken more than $55,000 from oil company PACs for your campaigns over the years."
If I were Shortbridge, I'd probably be saying "oops" right about now.
Edited because I listened to the ad again. And then threw up in my mouth a little.
