"Why isn't she in a sweet business suit, kicking down doors on a bunch of old white dudes who are smoking cigars, laughing and playing poker with taxpayer money?" was my first thought.
I'm interested to see how soon a shorter version of Secretary of State Karen Handel's first ad, or something like it, makes it onto television.
Awesome. And a little mean spirited.
"It is not a good-old boy who wil make Georgia work, it is a proven, battle tested, accomplished reformer, who just happens to be a she. Got problems, Georgia? Bring 'em on."
UPDATE: Team Oxendine responds:
After 72 hours of overwhelming negative reaction to her Clinton-style hit piece, Karen Handle performed the first of what is sure to be many excuses in this campaign. In an interview on WSB TV, Channel 2, Karen Handel said the centerpiece of her campaign, this very expensive ad, is now nothing more than a joke.No word on whether this means that The AJC now believes Handel to be the front-runner.
Karen Handle may think it is a joke to run a negative, Clinton-style ad; however, most Republicans who were subjected to this surprise video view it as anything but a joke. They saw it and have called it for what it is.
Two other entities took a look at Karen Handel's video - Capitol Impact and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
It appears that Karen failed on the facts - a lot.
