Another Good Democratic Campaign Ad

Jean Schmidt is one of the Republicans I would feel best about seeing tossed out of Congress a week from Tuesday. Here's a great ad by her opponent in Ohio's 2nd Congressional district, Dr. Victoria Wulsin, that highlights Schmidt's disgraceful House-floor performance against Congressman Jack Murtha last year:

Wulsin seems like a wonderful candidate and it would be great to see her limit Schmidt to one, worthless term in Congress.

Update: If you want to know what kind of political rocket-scientists Schmidt and her crew are, Josh Marshall reports that the Wicked Witch of Southern Ohio was so upset with the ad above that, as Josh tells us, "they hit back hard by pointing out that the ad breaks House Rule V, which prohibits recordings of House proceedings from being used in political advertisements."

"Her continued violation will land her in serious trouble with the House Ethics Committee," barked Schmidt spokesman Matt Perin.

But, as Josh reports, "Only, as the Wulsin camp pointed out, House Rules don't apply to people who aren't members of the House."

Oops. Now there's a laugh to carry you into your weekend!
