Yet another ad at PoliticsNJ

PoliticsNJ has a habit of running candidate advertisements in place of their normal entry page. The latest is from gubernatorial candidate Bob Schroeder.

Schroeder's message in this advertisement is muddled at best. A chalk outline of Forrester, and a burning outline of Schundler, with sirens and police radio chatter in the background? What was the communications staff thinking? Oh, I know -- "we don't have a prayer, so let's bring down everyone else with us!"

As if that wasn't bad enough, the transition into the Battle Hymn of the Republic is quite jarring. Are you marching off to war, Mr. Schroeder? Against whom? Given the images showing what a nice regular family guy you are, you'd have been better off with something like this music.
