Edwards Buys Ad to Rebut Bush

Democratic Party, News Media

John Edwards has bought two minutes of air time on MSNBC, scheduled to air after Bush’s 15-minute televised speech from the White House at 9 p.m. EDT. Full story here.

I’d like to see a lot more of this, a la Ross Perot’s thirty minute spots he did in 1992, but of course this takes buckets of money. If you would like to help Edwards pay for this, he would like to hear from you. I wish I had TIVO – it’ll be interesting to see if Edwards’ vaunted rhetorical skills on a two minute national platform can shift the debate.

    This is truly awesome. Way ahead of the curve. The itsy-bitsy preview that Talking Points Memo has managed to obtain shows a confident, believable Edwards speaking in a way that people will be able to understand: 2+2=4. BTW, I don’t have t.v. at all, much less Tivo, so I’m counting on Crooks & Liars, among others, to make the broadcast available for the internet crowd. Edwards will probably have it on his website, as well.
