NRCC Brings Guns To The DCCC’s Knife Fight

As the Congressional campaign in CA-11 moves into its closing days, Richard Pombo has gone into virtual seclusion, refusing to speak to the media. Too many hard questions, apparently.

Meanwhile, the group Campaign Money Watch has jumped into the fray, airing this commercial in CA-11:

And while the DCCC finally stepped up to the plate with a commercial that they are broadcasting throughout the district, the $111,954 that they reported spending on Tuesday isn’t going to pay for very much air time.

Much more telling is the fact that after the NRCC paid for yet another internal survey yesterday, they reacted by making an independent expenditure today of $636,925 for television advertising. Taken together with their other expenditures for this week (the usual phone banks plus smear mailer number 18) their spending for the week stands at $681,750. Put that together with their previous contributions, and the total NRCC independent expenditures on behalf of Richard Pombo now stand at $1,331,123.

So if you believe Carl Fogliani when he tells you that those NRCC polls don’t show Richard Pombo in trouble — well, damn, there’s really NO one that gullible, is there?

Here's the ads they are considering: "My name is Richard Pombo. I am in desperate need of your vote. I need to stay in office to keep paying my wife, Annette, 100's of thousands of dollars. Also, I have not finished the work Jack Abramoff started me on. And there are still some National Parks to sell off, as well as a real need to jump-start the commercial whaling industry. So please, for my wife, for all the out-of-work harpooners, and for all the casino developers who need a lucky break -- I ask that you support me with your vote. I need to keep the money rolling in, or rather, rolling in the money."

This sounds like some dialog from the movie "THE UNTOUCHABLES". The only difference is Pombo and Abramoff are more like the players of the movie "THE NEW YOUR GANGS".
In realty this is more like the cartoon Yosemite Sam, and the Bugs Bunny.

That's all folks.

This is a weird ad, what's with the funky voices overlapping each other?
