Day Two of Larsen’s Spectacular Video GaffeBy Evan at August 4th, 2010.
Rick Larsen’s in-house attack ad painting the Tea Party as racist whackjobs is still up.
Why is that surprising?
Every hour the ad stays up, Larsen faces an increasingly difficult situation. Pull an ad that’s undermining his credibility, but in so doing energize his opponent further, or leave it up, continue to lose “face,” with the local media and potentially become a national Tea Party target.
Larsen should calculate quickly and carefully.
