Philly GOP Hopeful Sends Salvo Into Enemy Camps
Philadelphia Republican mayoral candidate John Featherman has produced one of the most clever web ads we've seen in quite some time.
And here's the scary part -- in addition to being quite funny (in a sadly realistic way) it also makes a number of important points based on real stories right out of the headlines.
After nearly 60 years of iron-fisted one party rule, you'd think Philadelphians would wake up. You'd think they'd be tired of party hacks, nepotism, ineptitude, union thugs, scandal, waste, mismanagement and corruption. And you'd think the regular Republican organization in the city would show some muscle -- that they would do something, anything.
The Dems keep following the corrupt city machine and the Republican organization keeps cooperating and accepting the crumbs from the fat cat Dem table.
Give Featherman this much credit: At least he has the guts to speak out and try to make a race of it.
And, he certainly knows how to get our attention.
This is truly refreshing. Bravo!
