Rick Noriega's Response to "Big Bad John"
John Cornyn's self-aggrandizing commercial, set to a bowdlerized version of a Jimmy Dean classic ballad from the 1960s, has become the comedy hit of the season. Rick Noriega, who's running against Cornyn this fall, has created a reply:
I kinda like it.
I think I want Noreiga to do a commercial too -- after all, he's a serving Lt. Col. in the Texas National Guard. (Yeah, he's been to the Middle East; yeah, he's been deployed more than once.)
More importantly, in this riposte, Noriega exposes Cornyn's falsehoods without "going negative." There's a sense of ... humor? playfulness? ... something almost lighthearted about this ad.
More like this, please. And, more to the point, MORE like this: Dems taking on GOP politicos on their performance, with the facts.
