This political ad by John Dennis (R) in his battle against Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has to be one of the most bizarre ever. Pelosi and zombies seem to be the ultimate target here. I’m not at all clear how effective this might be – or even the intended demographic – Republicans? Independents? Former Pelosi voters? I just don’t know.
Dennis is a sharp Libertarian so he is both to the left and right of Nancy Pelosi on the political spectrum. From the SF Weekly:
But John Dennis, who says he’s raised $2 million to unseat Pelosi, is a “Liberty” Republican. And for committed Libertarians, the notions left and right don’t have quite the same meaning as they might with traditional liberals such as Pelosi. Sure, Dennis supports Proposition 19, the marijuana initiative. But he also backs San Francisco left-wing anathema Proposition L, which would prohibit sitting or lying on public ways between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m.
“In a strictly Libertarian world, the roads and sidewalks would be private property,” Dennis explained. “If you’re obstructing private property, you should be able to get people out of the way.”
This is not the only strange political ad that Dennis has done but it definitely ranks as his most bizzare. Hard to imagine this builds support for a campaign – but definitely a 1:42 of unusual entertainment. From Politicalwire.
