Progressives Go Charlie Bass Fishing

From the ABC News political digest, The Note, we learn that the adenoidal Markos Moulitsas (of Daily Kos renown) has teamed up with some fly-by-night outfit called Americans United for Change to dope-slap GOP lawmakers who oppose Obamacare:

HEALTH CARE ACCOUNTABILITY. The advocacy group, Americans United for Change, is partnering with the Daily Kos to run radio ads against Republican lawmakers who voted to repeal the health care reform law. Two targets: Rep. Charlie Bass, R-N.H., and Rep Paul Ryan, R-Wisc. “Equal protection. It’s the American way. But when it comes to health care protections, Congressman Charlie Bass thinks he deserves better than you,” the New Hampshire ad says. “Congressman Bass gets affordable health care, with protections against insurance companies cutting him and his family off.  No lifetime limits.  No annual caps.  No preexisting conditions. But last month Bass voted to deny you and your family these same protections. The ads will run on stations Bow, Keene, New London and Lebanon. The ads against Ryan in Wisconsin will run in Milwaukee, Racine and Janesville for a week.

Party like it’s 2012.

    Not enough animals? Too much voiceover? No visuals of branded projectiles striking the Congressman?
    I’m not sure what your beef is.

    In what sense is Americans United for Change a “fly-by-night outfit?” Or do I have to recalibrate my humor detector again? (I’ve had to do it before!)

    According to FCC records (available at, if you know how to search for such information), no com,mercial radio station exists in Bow, NH. There is an unbuilt NON-commercial station with a license to operate from there, however. Non-commercial stations are not supposed to accept advertising, only (ahem) underwriting acknowledgements. In my experience, advocacy ads are uncommon on non-commercial stations, if they ever run at all. A recent boring football game’s network turned down some advocacy ads.
