Well today, I saw the new "Club For Growth" ad attacking Tommy Thompson for raising taxes an abhorrent 9 times during his 14 years as Governor. Then, in the SAME commercial, they attack Eric Hovde, only trying to paint him as "worse than Thompson". Take a look:

I found the "bridge to nowhere" quote to be quite interesting. The "citation" on the bottom of the screen when that statement gives the words, "Citizens Against Government Waste." Wow, Eric, you can't even give me an "HR" number or anything? Really?

Hey Democrats, Liberals, and Progressives, these guys are clearly going to know how to do negative messaging by the time one of them takes on Tammy Baldwin. Don't kid yourselves, we need to have a damn good plan to combat it otherwise we are going to have another "Ron Johnson" in the US Senate from Wisconsin. Have you noticed the Eric Hovde and Mark Neumann signs going up within the last week or two? Figure it out... we need to win this messaging war NOW, not in October.
