The government employee unions propping up the Vote No on 1 cabal have finally produced a decent television ad that doesn’t feature evaporating firefighters, disappearing cops, or vanishing teachers.
This ad, called Struggle, is designed to scare the shit out of Grandma & Grandpa with rising bar graphs that say HIGHER! PROPERTY! TAXES! It features the same stock video of hot teachers, hunky firefighters, adorable families, and a random shot of a carpenter from a ridiculous angle.
Hey, when you have over $5 million in Big Labor donations you think you could come up with more creative stock footage? Hey Peter Meade, Anne Wass and Steve Crawfish here is some advice: in future ads you should consider featuring a state trooper sleeping in his cruiser on the Mass Pike, a bodybuilding firefighter out on disability, and guys manning a drawbridge having a cookout while other dudes steal the iron and copper off it.
Ya know, real government employees?
