Conservatives (Young) Gunning For John Tierney

Embattled Massachusetts Rep. John Tierney (D-Eight-to-Five He Loses) is in the crosshairs of the YG Network, a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization affiliated with the self-styled Young Guns – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), Majority Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Budget Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), who also happens to be the presumptive GOP vice presidential candidate.

From Buzzfeed:

Conservatives Tuesday announced a new ad campaign using a Senate Democratic tax plan with virtually no chance of passage to slam Democrats while giving Republicans support for opposing the bill.

Run by former aides to Majority Leader Eric Cantor, YG Network’s $250,000 ad buy will use two separate ads – one targeting Democrats and urging them to oppose the bill and a second, aimed at Republicans praising their opposition.

Among the targeted Democrats – Massachusetts 6th District congressman John Tierney:


As if Tierney didn’t have enough headaches already.

    “Young Guns”. What a charming, timely way to refer to yourselves! I suppose the names “Arizona Terror Assassins” and “Colorado Midnight Murderers” were already taken.

      • Not to mention delusional, given that they range from age 42 to 49.

        Can you imagine anyone that age in any other business referring to himself as the “young gun?” He’d be laughed out of the executive sauna.

        By the time you’re that age in most businesses, HR is already trying to figure out how to get rid of you.

      • Campaign Outsider says:

        Yeah, except the YGs are the ones doing the getting rid of.
