Buck Dozier's new ad looks like the Bat Poet produced it. Campaign strategist Mike Kopp is saying the ad's intentionally simple to convey a sense of the Buckster's inner core. Dozier is pretty simple, no question. But what the ad really conveys is a sense of how broke his campaign is. If Dozier had any money, he'd go out and hire somebody who knows how to make a TV ad. Luckily, Dozier couldn't afford to buy enough airtime to make the average viewer see his ad more than once before the election.
Dozier's also doing some entirely predictable, 11th-hour railing against illegal immigrants in a press statement and a mailout. Here's one of Dozier's bright ideas: Create a hotline so people can report it if they suspect businesses are hiring illegals. As Sean Braisted observes, "This plan is golden because as we all know, the average citizen has great insight into whether or not a person's government documentation is properly in order."
