As the Republican primary season rumbles on, there can only be more campaign ads. Which ones succeed? Which fail? In Ad Watch, we review them as they come out. Today: Romney fights off his attackers and Ron Paul distinguishes himself.
The Ad: Mitt Romney, "Kill Romney?"
The Issues: Attack ads, fighting back, Apple products
The Message: Romney, as we know, is tearing through the primaries, handily winning everything (except Iowa, South Carolina, Colorado, Minnesota, and Missouri) and the Obama campaign is afeared. Meaning they have to step up their "Kill Romney" strategy. You remember that official strategy, made official that time the word "kill" was offhandedly said by one staffer back in August. So these Obamadrones are taking to their trendy, liberal Apple products and talking all liberally and evilly on iChat about how they need to step up their game in the face of the all-powerful Mitt Storm. Meaning you, all you many Mitt lovers (Mmm... Mitt lovers pizza...), need to donate now to fight back. Because we have no idea what this terrifying "next level" of attack might be. Might they actually kill Mitt Romney? No! Hahaha, of course not, no one's suggesting that. But, y'know, if you want to get scared into thinking that and feverishly donate to prevent that from happening, then by all means go ahead and do so.
