The grandma is Marlene Quinn, who appeared in a pro-repeal WAO ad praising firefighters for rescuing her granddaughter from a house fire. In a tricky bit of editing, BBO showed only part of what she said - Fox News style - and led the viewer to believe she was against the repeal. However, it conveniently cut out the part in which she urged Ohio voters to support the repeal. She, of course, is outraged by the piracy, and TV stations across the state have pulled the commercials because of their blatant dishonesty.
Now I ask you: even though TV commercials tend to wander off into terra incognito at times, you understand that it comes with the territory. In this instance, the ad producers created a big negative for their TV money, giving repeal supporters plenty to point out to the public about what was essentially an amateurish slickster's way of making a point.
Two things can happen: Inspired by anti-repeal Gov. Kasich, the repealers could run a film clip of his calling a cop an idiot, inasmuch as safety forces are among the public employes targeted by the new law that is being challenged; or the anti-repealers could fire the blockhead that produced the ad that has now turned up with unintended consequences - which are the worst kind in political campaigns.
