Behind the Ad: Rand Paul, defender of liberty with the pectorals of a god

By Richard Barry

Who: America's Liberty PAC (supporting Sen. Rand Paul)

Where: A digital ad

What's going on: In what The Hill calls an attempt to mimic "the aggressive style of a pro wrestling promo," this very strange ad displays parts of the Patriot Act, alluding to Sen. Paul's attempts to kill it in what is referred to as the "greatest brawl for liberty of the century." 

Ted Cruz, called the "capitulating Canadian," and Lindsey Graham are lambasted for supporting government surveillance as is , obviously, President Obama, "the head of the Washington spy machine."
Paul successfully blocked all efforts by the Senate late last week to temporarily renew programs that allow the warrantless data collection of Americans’ phone calls and to agree on a compromise measure. That gives the body just hours during a special Sunday session to negotiate a solution before the provisions expire.

There is little doubt we will be inundated with ads for the next year and a half, but if others to come are anything like this, I just don't know what to say. Gotta love the photoshopped image of Rand Paul. In his dreams.

  • I'm inclined to like the message, but this is just so badly done. I don't remember pro wrestling ads containing poor visuals and almost unrecognizable voice-overs. Who does he think this is going to appeal to?
