The National Abortion Rights Action League can take a bow.
Their radio ad predicting a dystopian condomless future in which Science-Denier Cory Gardner (who is running for the Senate in CO against Mark “Uterus” Udall) has outlawed contraceptives, easily earns the award for dumbest political ad of the season. It’s dumber even than anything Wendy Davis has put out there (including the loathsome wheelchair ad) and that’s saying something.
The ad seeks to deceive low info young women with “war on womeny” hysteria – rather than educate them with the truth. It is a massive insult to their intelligence.
The ad begins with some dude “mansplaining” to his ignorant girlfriend “a near future in which Cory Gardner has banned birth control leading, somehow, to a complete unavailability of condoms and also college tuition.”
As John Sexton notes at Breitbart.com, “Cory Gardner has been running since June on a platform to make birth control pills available over-the-counter, i.e. without a prescription. I’m not sure how making something available more easily is tantamount to banning it.”
But that’s only one of of the ad’s many problems with truth, logic, style, etc. Hit the link for Sexton’s humorous take on the rest.
Women in Colorado should be offended. And Mark Udall should be embarrassed that such a ridonkulous ad was put out there supporting him.
