The candidate who's about to take a vicious beating from his rivals in the governor's race is calling for civility in politics in this new TV ad. Do you think Zach Wamp and Ron Ramsey will laugh out loud or merely chortle to themselves when they see this?
"What if we had an election where we really did focus on the issues? That's what I'd like to do," Haslam says in his hysterically funny opening line in the ad.
Haslam will have the last laugh, of course. Once Wamp and Ramsey go on the attack, he will launch a nuclear counterstrike and wipe them off the map. He's already been taking polls to test their negatives. With this ad, he's thinking ahead. When his rivals start crying, he can claim he tried to play nice.
