  •  Carnahan's first ad was bashing Blunt on the (0+ / 0-)

    bailout.

    Let's go to the numbers

    McCain voters are less likely to vote for a bailout supporter by an 87-5 margin.
    Obama voters are more likely to vote for a bailout supporter by an 54-29 margin.

    Of course, keeping in mind that those 87% of McCain supporters who dislike bailouts voted for a bailout supporter in 2008 and that 76% of McCain voters are voting for Blunt.

    So, will one ad cause people who have consistently opposed bailouts and supported pro-bailout Republicans to actually stop doing that? Nope.

    It'd be nice to get some sort of inspiring theme, because I don't think many voters are pumped for the "get us 60 votes" drive and they're getting close to allowing the people who screwed it up before another shot at power.
