The disastrous timing of Planned Parenthood’s anti-Romney ad campaign

Knowing Mitt Romney would secure the Republican nomination for president with a win in the Texas primary on May 29, Planned Parenthood planned the roll-out of its anti-Romney ad campaign for May 30.

Here is how ad campaigns like this are supposed to work:

  1. A special interest group makes a video
  2. The group makes a small ad buy
  3. The group makes a big PR splash
  4. The group hopes it will get lots of earned (free) media and that its video will go viral

Planned Parenthood’s #2 should read:

2. The group makes a small ad buy and lies and says it made a big ad buy

More on that later.

The problem for Planned Parenthood was it knew Live Action’s video exposť on sex selective abortions was coming but didn’t know when.

Any day would have been a bad day for Live Action to release its first video, but May 29 was the worst day possible.

Will incarcerated Illinois guvs make Choose Life license plates?

Click to enlarge… Got the above in an email today, and the glorious thought struck me that either of these guys might some day be stamping “Choose Life” license plates.

Court overturns Blagojevich’s order forcing pharmacies to sell emergency contraceptives

ACORN scandal leads to White House?

I’m sure the Union News, October 17, 2008: NPR reports that ACORN’s cofounder, Wade Rathke, also founded SEIU…. ACORN’s biggest union backer, the Service Employees International Union, gave more than $4 million to the community organization and its affiliates from 2006-07, according to Dept. of Labor filings…. Living in IL, I’ve sensed an unholy alliance […]

Blago blabs

On WLS talk radio’s Don and Roma’s Show in Chicago today, former Gov. Rod Blagojevich started to let loose about IL political carnal knowledge. Rest assured, if he gets indicted, he’s going to blab. And even if not, it appears he’s planning to write a book. And, oh, what a book that will be, because […]
