Terri Lynn Land sat silent, so the void was filled

by: Eric B.

Fri May 02, 2014 at 10:56:14 AM EDT


Terri Lynn Land spends money on an ad in which she just sits and says nothing. So, this video does what she declined to do: Define her in terms of the war on women.

Teh Demas wrote a column this week about Terri Lynn Land.

We need to have vigorous policy debates on everything -- equal pay, abortion, Crimea and unemployment. 

This is true. Terri Lynn Land would prefer, however, to use the time she pays for sitting there and wordlessly looking around. In a way, given how toxic he regards the job of talking to reporters, it's an excellent metaphor for her campaign in general.

Exactly as you predicted (0.00 / 0)
Land dared people to define her on women's issues and they did.

Greetings from Detroit, Ground Zero of the post-industrial future!

Well done! (0.00 / 0)
I knew from seeing his ads four years ago in the old 9th that Peters is an expert at defining his opponents before they know what hit them (I'm assuming this ad is from the Peters campaign and not the DSCC or other group). Of course, as Eric said, Land was really begging for this one.

Ad is from Michigan Democratic Party (0.00 / 0)
It's on their YouTube channel and there is no "I'm Gary Peters and I approve this message."

Greetings from Detroit, Ground Zero of the post-industrial future!

Thanks for that clarification (4.00 / 1)
It's good to see the MDP can get aggressive.

I think the Peters mugs that say "Really" are clever. (4.00 / 1)
Really. I do.

Great Lakes, Great Times.

Good ad (0.00 / 0)
But, this should have been a television ad and done professionally.  I'm not sure how many people are going to see this.

So far, 2,000+ and counting have seen it in two days (0.00 / 0)
Time to make this go viral.

Greetings from Detroit, Ground Zero of the post-industrial future!
