Rick Noriega For US Senate
What a fantastic ad. Seriously, one of the best I have seen yet. The visuals are moving and the story compelling. Noriega, a veteran, state legislator and leader shows how he helped deal with the fallout of Katrina in Texas, went to Afghanistan and Iraq as a soldier and worked with other lawmakers as a state representative.
Now I know why everyone has been raving about this guy.
And oh how this contrasts with "Box Turtle" John Cornyn, who is a Bush rubber stamp and one of the dumber and more bigoted GOPers in the Senate (and that, of course, is truly saying something). With Cornyn's approval rating in the toilet--a place one could also find objects with a roughly similar IQ--get ready for this to be a nasty race, as a true hero takes on a slimy sewer-dweller who can only sell hate.
