Ben Shapiro offers Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez $10,000 to debate

Believe it or not the midterm elections are right around the corner. Believe me Hoosiers are well aware of this fact. Since the primary, we’ve been inundated with ads and ads telling us “Millionaire” Mike Braun isn’t looking out for “real” Hoosiers, whatever that’s supposed to mean.

Anyway, the one candidate, who has been getting the most national attention, without a doubt is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat running in New York’s 14th Congressional District.

She’s become the darling of the left and the national media, with the chair of Democratic National Committee referring to her as “the future of the party.”

Ok, fine sure. But her um her answers or lack thereof have left up to harsh ridicule, most deservedly so.  For instance, there’s this gem, this one and this one. Needless to say, if this woman is the future of the Democratic Party, the future looks rather bleak.

However, Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief, Ben Shapiro, has challenged the left’s current darling to a substantive debate offering to discuss issues in a civilized manner in order to find out what this Democratic-Socialist really believes.

To sweeten the pot, in order to entice Ms. Oscaio-Cortez, he has offered to donate $10,000 to her campaign. 

Will the woman show? Seriously? Don’t hold your breath.

 

West Virginia GOP Senate candidate’s ad…is bad, really bad

It’s inevitable that campaign season will produce a number of bad campaign ads. Candidates have limited money, time and manpower. Sometimes you just have to go with what you have and just hope that the candidate’s message is strong enough for the voter’s to overlook the less than stellar ad.

The contentious Indiana GOP Senate primary campaign has produced a number of them, most of them negative and most of them courtesy of the Todd Rokita campaign.

For instance:

However, as bad as those ads may appear, they are nothing, absolutely nothing in comparison to this one produced by a West Virginia GOP Senate candidate.

Don Blankenship is looking to replace Democrat Joe Manchin, but this ad will probably not put him over the top.

The music, the monotone delivery, and the lack of any kind of personality aren’t going to help. But the icing on the cake has to be his creative nickname for Mitch McConnell.

Check it out for yourself:

Todd Rokita: Congressman, avid negative campaigner and …children’s author?

Congressmen Luke Messer, Todd Rokita and former state representative and businessman Mike Braun are set to debate April 30. It’ll be the final time the candidates are together, an opportunity for the three men to give one final plea before voters head to the polls.

Expect the negative attacks to fly fast and furious in Monday’s debate. Why should anyone expect it to be any different from the rest of the race?

The Rokita campaign, before finally agreeing to participate in the debate, attacked Monday’s moderator, Abdul-Hakim Shabazz. Calling him “a compromised moderator” and “closely aligned to one of the other campaigns.”  Can we say managing expectations?

This race has been an increasingly negative affair. In fact, things have gotten so bad that the Associated Press recently labeled Indiana’s Republican U.S. Senate primary “the nastiest in the nation.”

Well, with less than two weeks to election day, did you really think the attacks would cease?  Instead of easing up, candidates are turning to other communication mediums to slam one another.

For example, Todd Rokita is now a published author. His campaign released “Oh, The Places You’ll Forget,” using the Dr. Seuss classic to slam Luke Messer and his residency.

Like everything else from the Rokita campaign, it doesn’t rely on subtly to get its point across. In the opening pages, there is a reference to both Richard Lugar and Evan Bayh. Both of whom had their residency come up in their most recent campaigns.

But the Rokita campaign saved the best for last, with this terrific passage that is sure to be remembered for generations to come:

“He didn’t support Trump!                                                                                                      Oh for the love of Pete! I’m going to join Todd Rokita and “Defeat the Elite!”

Maybe, for their next act they should have their candidate put on boxing gloves and hit punching bags with his opponents’ faces.

Oh, wait.

 

Braun campaign puts out a…rather weird ad

What did I just watch?  Seriously, what in the world was that?

Campaign ads are done on a limited budget and extreme time constraints. While money is a valuable commodity, the candidate’s time is worth far, far more. That can lead to things being rushed and possibly not getting done, or at least not as well as they should.

Keep that reasoning in mind when viewing the latest Mike Braun ad.

The Braun campaign put out their latest ad Tuesday evening, premiering during an episode of the smash hit Roseanne, an extremely coveted position. A lot of potential Republican primary voters are sure to have tuned in, but….what?

It’s a “throwback ad.”  The ad goes back in time, when all of the candidates were children and theoretically in the same class, as well. The children portraying Messer and Rokita standing at the front of the class bicker back and forth and never get anything accomplished. While little Messer and miniature Rokita are worried about who is right and who’s in the wrong, little Mike Braun is seen in the back reading a book, an economics book.

The ad is negative, hitting Rokita and Messer for being career politicians. However, Braun is portrayed as a businessman looking for real-world solutions.

While it’s a different take on a negative ad and it attempts to be funny, it’s just plain weird.

The Braun campaign now has the bizarre distinction of having released both the best and worst ad of the campaign for senate.

Paul Ryan posts Easter message, leftists lose their minds

Easter is the day to celebrate the fact that Christ is risen and that the tomb is empty. He went to the cross on Friday to pay for the sins of mankind, only to rise on Sunday and gained victory over death.

Needless to say, it’s an important time for many families. Recognizing the day is special to many, Speaker Paul Ryan posted a video to Twitter wishing families a blessed Easter.

There is absolutely nothing political in the video at all, but that didn’t stop leftists. In fact, they absolutely lost their minds. Responding with obscene messages that don’t exactly display the love and open mindedness leftists are always going on and on about.

Gotta say, I watched the video and I didn’t hear that quote. Maybe I missed it?

Then there’s this measured and well thought out response.

I know there are different kinds of Easter candy that make an appearance once a year, but I’ve never heard of this. Perhaps he buys his chocolate at a very different kind of store.

Second message from this all-star.

This individual seems to know the location of Mr. Ryan’s eternal home.

This obvious MENSA member also seems to be concerned with Ryan’s eternal resting place.

Oh, well. Keep on spreading and sharing the love leftists. Can wait to see what you have for Christmas!
