The GOP aligned group, Americans for Shared Prosperity, has done it! They’ve produced an advertisement that pushes liberals right over the edge. Not for being “sexist,” “misogynistic,” “racist,” “anti-poor people,” or any other of the usual straw men that liberals like to trot out in an effort to make the GOP seem out of touch. This time the problem with the ad is that they don’t like the way the woman looks!
Here is Joan Walsh from Salon complaining about… something….
“…a lovely, latte-skinned young woman in a pink shirt and pearls is sitting on her white sofa, complaining about a man she met online: “In 2008, I fell in love. His online profile made him seem so perfect. Smart, handsome, charming, articulate.”
Walsh titled the piece “New Ad Shows Why They’ll Lose Women Again.” In her article there is nary the hint of how the ad shows this. She attempts to say that the ad is condescending – but the ad is just the opposite. It delivers truth.
Liberals believe that female voters care only about free birth control, no question abortions and legislation that deals with sexual assault. The reality is that women are as varied as men and they care about the same range of issues that men do. Economics, Healthcare, War, Immigration, Crime, Education… all of these are women’s issues and the Republican Party is the only party that seems to remember this.
Here is the ad that is driving Joan Walsh batty – you tell me if you think the folks at Americans for Shared Prosperity are being condescending… or if they are being honest (and a little funny).
“He thinks the only thing I care about is free birth control, but he won’t even let me keep my own doctor! I know ‘m stuck with Barack for two more years, I get that. But I’m not stuck with his friends. I’m looking for someone who get’s that this isn’t about him, it’s about us.”
Condescending? No way. Just a whole lotta truth told with a wink and a smile. This ad is great and Americans for Shared Prosperity should be congratulated for it!
