Tinklenberg unveils new TV ad, courtesy of Michele Bachmann

The first fruits of Michele Bachmann’s words will be showing up on a TV screen near you.

El Tinklenberg, the 6th Congressional District challenger to Republican incumbent Bachmann, released the first ad he’s able to run on metro-wide television because of the outpouring of financial support he’s received since Bachmann’s “Hardball” interview Friday.

Keeping with the campaign’s vow to use the more than $800,000 it received in just a few days, the tone of the ad is hugely positive.

    It used to be that if one said something stupid, one could deny, deny, deny. In the age of YouTube, that is no longer true. Rep. Bachmann cannot deny her words.

    Rep. Robin Hayes (R-NC) just said something equally dumb. He said “liberals hate real Americans that work and accomplish and achieve and believe in God.” After denying repeatedly that he had made the statement, an audio recording turned up and he was forced to say that, yes, he had made the statement after all. See http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1008/14797.html

    Words have consequences – sometimes more than 800,000 consequences. I’ll be interested to see the increase in fund raising by Rep. Hayes’ opponent, Larry Kissell. You can donate at http://www.larrykissell.com/

    A hearty thank you to Representative Bachmann for her forthright comments and handling of Chris Matthews on Hardball. The mainstream media has largely misrepresented the dialogue, but that is to be expected of its extreme bias to the left.

    It is right that she raises questions about the views of Obama and of members of Congress. There are too many that blame America first, rather than to celebrate its goodwill.

    Hopefully those that are able are making contributions to her campaign to counter the effect of the reportedly largely online contributions to her opponents campaign. Online contributions to leftist candidates, especially those to the Obama campaign are largely suspect as to their source, many of which are reported to be exceeding legislated contribution limits and many from foreign nationals, both serious illegalities. The left has gone mad with the funds generated through the largese of our system of democratic capitalism that they despise.
