In a follow-up to the five minute video introduction released yesterday, the David Perdue campaign released its first 30 second TV spot, which will run in several Georgia media markets. From a press release:

“I’m excited to begin a direct conversation with voters across the state. With a crushing federal debt and a stagnant economy threatening our very way of life, we have a limited window of opportunity to get things back on track,” said Perdue. “I believe that it will take an outsider with real business experience to get big things done, and our media campaign helps show Georgians the clear choice they will have in this election.”

According to an article in The Hill, the ad will run in the Atlanta, Albany and Macon TV markets, with a total cost of about $170,000.

Time for Perdue to get some grass fires burning to flush out the snakes (he’ll need some anti-venom).

It takes some sack for a Perdue to call himself an outsider.

David has a lot to be thankful for – his personal financial wealth in the filing under the Ethics in Government Act, shows he could contribute or loan millions to his campaign for many more of these commercials. Because the value of assets is listed in broad dollar categories, his reported wealth ranges from an estimated $27 million to $83 million. Wow…

Is it just me )as a dad of three young kids), or is anyone else disturbed that a TV cameraman stood there with a camera waiting for babies to cry — with their moms likely just sitting behind the cameraman not picking them up to make them feel better?

A bit bothered by this.

My kids have kids that age but I suspect this is the first thought that comes to mind for most parents that have ever had to answer that primordial call. Wonder if they tested this with mothers other than the ones paid to make this commercial?

The CGI shot was pretty impressive for a Georgia primary candidate though. We’ve come a long way from J.B. Stoner and his flags in production values I suppose. But stupid as it his point was J.B. didn’t muddy it up with screaming green screen babies, he did his own screaming.

Mark lets just hope that they didn’t do something or deny something to make the babies cry…
