U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark., the embattled incumbent not only facing a line of wanna-be GOP challengers but also a primary fight with Lt. Gov. Bill Halter, has finally gotten around to releasing her first TV ad, about two days after Halter debuted his 30 sec spot.
I suppose Lincoln’s spot is no goofier than Halter’s, high school football coach in tow. Lincoln’s message — that Washington is made of up a bunch of children — might be stronger had she not spent the last decade or so, er, in Washington. But I get what she’s trying to say: she’s been the adult and voted against the crazy spending.
Here’s both of them, head to head. What do you think? Snap judgements welcome in comments.
