The Donkey Whisperer

I love good political ads. Last year we had some good ones like the one for Dale Peterson of Alabama - though his gun-handling skills left a bit to be desired.

The first really good political ad of the season is from Roger Williams who is running as a Republican for the newly created 33rd District in Texas. This district is in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex of North Texas. Williams is a former Texas Secretary of State and a small businessman.

I think the ad below is ingenious. It gets his message across very clearly about the Democrats but is still friendly given the herd of donkeys surrounding him.

Since this IS a gun blog, here is Williams' statement on the Second Amendment.
I’m a Texan, a lifetime NRA member, and a gun owner. I don’t want anyone messing with my 2nd Amendment rights, and I won’t allow anyone to mess with yours.

  1. Wow. That was a really good ad. Someone had a great idea and I'm glad they did it.

  2. I heard about this on the radio here in Austin this morning. The story wasn't his campaign, or his ingenious ad, or anything like that.

    No, the story was that he was being criticized by Democrats because since he was saying that donkeys want him to give them shelter and food, he was equating welfare recipients to smelly animals.


  3. I LOL'd....a good bit too!

    That is good!
