Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown (R-Totally, Like, YouTubular) has inadvertently attached himself to the GOP-manufactured Bow to Foreign Dictators debate.
Spotted: Scott Brown Ads on YouTube
Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) has begun advertising his campaign online beyond Massachusetts using the Google ad network, including on YouTube.
Describing himself as “an independent voice”, he urges viewers of the ad to “donate today.” According to new figures released by the Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth, the number of independent voters in the state continues to grow as membership in the two main parties are shrinking. The latest figures show that the number of voters not enrolled in any party has topped 52 percent, up from 2004, when slightly less than half of all Massachusetts voters were independent. The number of registered Democrats has dropped more than a full percentage point from more than 37 percent of all voters in 2004, while the proportion of Republicans has dropped from 13 percent to 11 percent.
One particular ad appeared beside a YouTube video in which a young woman says she is following President Barack Obama’s lead in apologizing for recent Koran burnings by U.S. troops.
Said video, titled “My Apology to President Karzai on Behalf of Americans.”
The hardworking staff is not sure Brown shares the same sentiments, but Internet ads mean often having to say you’re sorry.
