U.S. Senate candidate Rodney Glassman released a new Web ad today and it might be fairly persuasive if we hadn't seen an identical ad -- literally identical -- from J.D. Hayworth during the GOP primary.
The ad, titled "McCain VS Arizona," features McCain fumbling over his words when asked what he's done for Arizona. Then, it shows a bunch of old people grumbling that they can't remember a single thing McCain's ever done.
Again, it is literally the exact same footage Hayworth used in two of his campaign ads.
Check them out after the jump.
Below is an ad Hayworth released during his campaign:
He went on to recycle the footage of the old folks in another ad later in his campaign. Check it out here.
Rodney Glassman has taken the exact same ad, thrown his name at the end, and posted it on Youtube. Check it out below.
We called Glassman's campaign to see if they're planning on giving J.D. production credit for the new ad. Nobody got back to us.
Anyhow, smooth move taking political cues from J.D. Hayworth, Rodney. We all saw how J.D.'s political prowess paid off in the GOP primary. Our only question now is how does Rodney feel about man/ horse nuptials.
