The hopefully soon-to-be-infamous “Elbert Guillory: Send Hagan Home” ad.

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: even if this doesn’t actually work there’s still something deeply satisfying about hearing it being said. Partially because it’s all true – African-American voters are getting screwed over by the Democratic party – and partially because the liberal, mostly white, Democratic hyper-partisans are right now discovering that there’s only so much that you can do to a minority Republican politician when he or she is reasonably certain of getting the Republican vote generally.

And make no mistake: Elbert Guillory has ambitions higher than smacking white Democratic politicians right in their bloated senses of condescension and entitlement. Which is fine by me. I do so enjoy seeing a man go about the business of doing well by doing good.

PS: As to the effectiveness of the ad? Beats me: but here’s a cheery thought. The basic message of that ad is not Republicans are swell! or Let me spend the next twenty minutes telling you about the arcane details of regulatory reform or even Here, have some free stuff.  It is, instead, one of the most classic of American principles:

Don’t get mad.  Get even.

The advantage of a message like that is that the aforementioned principle is very, very easy to implement in this case.  Want to send the Democrats a message?  Easy: just don’t vote for Kay Hagan.  …And that’s it.  It’s elegant.  I like elegant, particularly when it’s this… stripped of non-essentials.

      1. Well I posted a link to the article.

        In other news, apparently there is another video from Chicago where people are ripping the Democrat Party.

  1. He’s either looking to be Governor after Vitter, or he’s looking to run for Senate in 2016. ( He is running for Lt. Gov) but these are the actions of someone looking for higher office. POTUS is probably out of his reach as he’s in his 60s and would be over 69 by the time he’s in a high enough office to make a credible run.

  2. Indeed, this ad doesn’t even mention the GOP. Which I hope will make it that much more effective. It repeatedly mentions the broken promises the Democratic Party has made to the African-American Community.

  3. I have sent his PAC money twice. Looks like I need to do it again. His is a powerful and urgent voice. I urge you all to look at his other Youtubey stuff. VERY Powerful.

  4. And just so you all know: my brother’s and my (step) grandfather’s middle name was Elwood. Which I just think is rocking w/ the whole Elbert thing. if you have NOT seen his other messages, go see them right now. He is such a beacon.
