Demon Sheep Makes Encore In Another Absurd Republican Campaign Ad

Posted By on Mon, Feb 22, 2010 at 3:59 PM

And this time, the demon sheep breathes fire. There's also circus music involved in this asinine ad launched today by the Tom Harman for Attorney General 2010 campaign entitled,  "Steve Cooley is a Loser." Clearly, Harman's a real class act.

The context, for those who don't feel like wasting time, is that Harman's competition, Steve Cooley, the District Attorney of Los Angeles County, is a dubious Republican for his opposition of California's (ineffectual) three strikes law. The ad goes on to point out that Cooley even ran an anti-three strikes campaign, bankrolled by Johnnie Cochran's law partner.  

"If that's not scarier than demon sheep, than I don't know what," announces a goofball narrator. That statement is actually meaningless, considering that nothing is scarier than demon sheep. (Okay, maybe this comes close).

Disappointingly, there's no mention in the ad of how many tax dollars

might be saved if people stopped ending up in prison -- based on the

three strikes law -- for things like stealing a $3.99 packet of cheese.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
