Chris Coons now has his first bona fide attack ad against Christine O’Donnell — as if every late night comedy talk show weren’t already doing the job for him. In the ad, Coons’s campaign responds to O’Donnell’s attack ads by going after some of her various wacky statements.
“Christine O’Donnell says a lot of strange things,” the announcer says, with a Twilight Zone outer space backdrop leading to video clips of some of O’Donnell’s greatest hits: “I’m not a witch,” “Evolution is a myth” — and of course, “Scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully-functioning human brains.”
“Huh?” the announcer says. “Now she’s attacking Chris Coons. The truth is, Coons cut $130 million, taxes in New Castle County are among the lowest in the region. Unlike Washington, Chris Coons balanced six budgets.”
The TPM Poll Average gives Coons a lead of 55.5%-37.2%.
