What's with the lame "Johnson Family" TV spot, running in heavy rotation throughout Wisconsin? This is how the Republicans expect to knock Russ Feingold out of the U.S. Senate? What are they really trying to say? The transcript isn't much help.
ANNC: Introducing the Ron Johnson FamilyIf the family's "nonprofessional" approach to acting is any indication of what Johnson's "nonprofessional" style of legislating would be like, watch out. And what's this about "a Wisconsin family worried about our country." They don't seem worried -- they just seem smug and all too cheerfully self-satisfied. Oh, that wacky Republican sense of humor!
Carey: (too bubbly) he’s a really super dad
Ben: (while texting) he’s a great role model….
Jenna: (eye rolling) he’s worked extremely hard all his life
Jane: (too smiley and working too hard) a wonderful husband for 33 years
Ron: ok…that’s enough.…
Ron: obviously I’m not a professional politician and they’re not professional actors, we’re just a Wisconsin family worried about our country.
I’m Ron Johnson and I approved this message because it’s time to get our nation’s house in order.
