National Democrats release humorous anti-Norm ad

In a TV ad made to look like a movie trailer, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee likens U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman to “Running Man,” as he scampers away from President Bush’s record.

This year, the DSCC has more cash to drop on bellweather Senate races than Republican counterparts; the PiPress’s Rachel Stassen-Berger notes this is the group’s first anti-Norm ad this year.

The real “Running Man,” by the way, starred likely Coleman backer Arnold Schwarzenegger. The DVD has just been re-released, with a bonus feature on privacy issues post-9/11. Also in the irony department, one of Arnold’s co-stars was the inimitable Jesse Ventura.
