MoveOn Targets Brian Baird with Anti-War TV Ad

posted by on August 29 at 15:26 PM

MoveOn is doing a $20,000 ad buy in the Vancouver market asking voters to tell Rep. Brain Baird (D-3, Vancouver) to bring the troops home.

Baird is already getting blasted for his recent “flip flop” on the war. Oddly, the ad doesn’t directly address Baird’s new position. (Baird wants to give the surge—which he voted against—another six months.)

Seriously? $20,000? It is nice that organizations can just piss away $20,000 on something stupid like this.

Awww. It's called CONSEQUENCES.

Brain's a big boy.

I think Baird needs to be pressured for his stand, but this seems like a really expensive way to do it. When's the last time MoveOn did anything that was actually effective?
