The Washington Post’s Marc Fischer thinks George Allen’s latest commercial is economical with the truth: George Allen’s Zen Ad: Can You Be Misquoted If You Were Never Quoted? It’s a nasty ad, and might be effective unless the counter-story gets out. An example of how money can tell in the last weeks of a campaign.
Incidentally, a commentator on Fischer’s blog has a real zinger: Senator Allen “isn’t so much an empty suit, as an empty sheet.”
The real question is whether Webb’s lawyers are going to ask stations to take down the ad on the grounds that it is simply false. Not that half of them would care. (I see that the DSCC has issued a press release, but that’s not the same thing.)
