Hollywood Republicans Against Franken

The National Republican Senatorial Committee released this spot featuring John Ratzenberger, Pat Boone, Stephen Baldwin, Robert Davi, Victoria Jackson and Pat Boone. It’s not exactly the A-list, but it strikes me at least that it is a tactic acknowledgement that past efforts to attack Democratic candidates merely for their ties to Hollywood are not working like they used to. In fact, this spot defends Hollywood. "Please Minnesota, don’t judge us all by Al Franken," says Ratzenberger. "We’re not all tantrum throwing divas," says Baldwin. Of course, this spot does imply that Franken’s fame is at the same level as Jackson, also an "SNL" alum, albeit long ago. (Via Wonkette)

    “It’s not exactly the A-list”? They are damaged actors struggling to stay above the D-list. This group of sloths does well to stay functional much less knowledgeable about the issues of the day. I wonder how much money they were offered by the NRSC for this gig… Oh, and GOBAMA!!!
