Behind the Ad: Texas Sen. John Cornyn goes all science fiction

By Richard K. Barry

Who: Senator John Cornyn

Where: Texas (web ad)

What's going on: Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, is up for reelection next year. In this ad, which is just over a minute long, a dystopian image of what will happen in Texas should it become a blue state is what we see.

Apparently the piece is a swipe at "Battleground Texas," a group led by Obama campaign veterans who would very much like to turn Texas blue. 

Should Democrats take over, the "Texas miracle" will be over, the ad intones, as more people leave the state than ever before with skyrocketing taxes and a lack of energy jobs due to new environmental regulations. And what's more, there will be higher taxes, higher unemployment and a government drowning in debt. You can count on it. 

And you might not even be able to shoot anybody for messin' with Texas. 

If nothing else, Cornyn gets high marks for successfully mimicking a really bad undergraduate film school project.
