Check out Front Group American Future Fund’s MO — their Cookie Cutter Ad formula to Buy an Election:
Get flashy graphic, and a menacing announcer;
Cut and Paste in — the Name of the Candidate, your backers dislike and have paid to replace!
Don’t Fact Check anything — make your Opponents waste their Time and Money trying to combat your baseless accusation. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
It helps when the Same Cookie-cutter format can be used over and over again, all across the nation. That makes their “special” money — go even further, as clearly displayed next:
Corporate Donations Buying U.S. Elections – Countdown — Keith Olbermann
It’s easy and it works. This Election is in the process of being Bought.
American Future Fund Ad – Fork in the Road – Stephanie Herseth Sandlin SD
New Ad from special interest American Future Fund repeats false attack – Mark Schauer MI
Did you notice a pattern?
American Future Fund has already spent over $4,000,000 on such Ads, this Campaign season (4th bar from the left, in the graph); $7 Million Total, according to Keith Olbermann.
They are not alone, among the many well-funded Front Groups — out there Shilling for Billionaires!
Of course Front Groups are NOT about to let a few pesky Facts — get in the way!
Of course Stephanie Herseth Sandlin has a “few facts” she’d like you to know about her Candidacy too … StephanieForSouthDakota.org
But Fact Checking is boring I know …
So I’ll leave you with this parting thought.
Thanks to Citizens United decision, “Special interest groups outside the Democratic and Republican parties” are out-spending themselves, when compared to the previous midterm election cycle, by about 500% — and they aren’t done yet.
And GOP Front Groups are outspending the Dem Response Ads trying to set their records straight — by a 7 to 1 margin.
Dems are being outspent by Corporate Speech. Period.
Say Hello to tomorrow, folks. The Machines have won.
