O-M-G, the new ad attacking Jim Frishe is just ridiculous!

I guess this is what one does with $250,000 from the US Chamber

Whether it be irony of citing the Tampa Bay Timeswhich endorsed Jim Frishe over Jeff Brandes in Senate District 22 — or focusing on an issue originally proposed by a Republican governor (Bob Martinez’ tax on services) or calling Frishe, the staunchest of a Republican, a liberal, this has to be the most preposterous ad airing in this race.

But just because the ad is preposterous doesn’t mean it won’t be effective. The capture I snagged of this ad was when the commercial aired on network TV — a sure sign that there are tens of thousands of dollars behind this media buy.

All of that said, I do like the dog at the end of the spot.
