Chuck DeVore’s First Ad

Geez Louise; the last election is less than a month ago, and Chuck DeVore has launched his first TV ad in his US senate race against Senator Barbara Boxer. 


The ad is classic Chuck.  Not a single word on why voters should vote for him and he tries to tie Boxer with the financial crisis in California.  Hmmm. She’s not in the state legislature so the connection is really a stretch.  Chuck also cites a Visitor’s center in DC that was three years late and cost a lot.  That Center would have been approved by a Republican Congress, but that’s not in there either.

Chuck is trying hard to mimic the campaign of Barack Obama; there’s one obvious and critical flaw in this strategy — Obama has more charisma in his pinky toe than Chuck has in his whole body. 

Listen to the end of the ad for “I’m Chuck DeVore and I approve this message”  Try not to be drinking anything at the time.

I will be attending a Boxer fundraiser in Los Angeles on December 13.

    Hey Dan! Thanks for making us the 7th most blogged about video in the world today (although, you can rest easy, Britney Spears was #1, so the universe is still in order).

    All the best,

    Chuck DeVore
    California State Assemblyman
    Candidate, United States Senate

    Did you say something Chuck? I was busy writing a $500 check to Boxer…probably the first of several.

    Thanks for not disputing that the Republican Congress funded the visitors center, or that Boxer was somehow responsible for the budget crisis in California.

    You may hate tax and spend, but your party is the borrow and spend party. And that 60-30 split of younger voters trending Democratic…

    More to come.

    OMG, Dan, I lost it long before the end of the ad…the snort/sniff stuff made me lose it. Does he think that voters have such a short memory?

    This was too funny!

    Who is the announcer with the whiney voice? Didn’t anybody listen to this before it went out, what a joke!

    Besides the fact that anybody who checks would see that many of Chuck’s reep buddies voted for the same visitors center, this is a real lame attempt for a few dumb bucks online.

    I’m no prophet, but I’ll play one for a moment, Chuck won’t get the cash to run a real campaign in 2010. Reep’s will put up a well funded candidate to challenge Boxer, but it won’t be Chuck…

    Can’t wait till Chuck tells Californians where he is sighting his nuclear reactors, Irvine, Mission Viejo? The Inland Empire? Dan your money will be well spent on Boxer, but it won’t be used to defeat Chuck, he’ll handle that all by himself!

    Sen. Boxer is my favorite of our two senators, I wish Assemblyman DeVore were running against Feinstein… that would’ve been a very entertaining fight… and I’d be significantly more sympathetic to Assemblyman DeVore. This was a crappy and annoying commercial. Now, my nose is going to bug me all day.

    Really, who did that horrible, amateurish, halting voice-over? It’s probably someone some of us know, from the local GOP or Chuck’s office, doesn’t sound or look like Chuck spent any money here. What does Jubal’s voice sound like?

    I can’t see this POS ad getting airplay; must be just a YouTube ad for now.

    And that tragic, melancholy piano soundtrack… to go with the SNIFFING – just weird.
