Ultra Right Winger Toomey advertising on DU to grab PA's US Senate seat in 2010.

Things have been really tight this year. Since November I have been unable to contribute to DU and get my Donor Star back again, so I am seeing ads. Some are horrible.

The FAR-right nutjob winger Pat Toomey, who is the front-runner for the GOP nomination to go after Arlen Specter's US Senate Seat, has an ad on almost every DU page I see.

God help us all.

1. Seems like a waste of money to me
Why would Toomey or any other right winger advertise on a website which is clearly anti RW? Stupidity comes to mind. Good luck with your situation. Hopefully things will get better for you soon.

2. Well, I don't know why, but that's what I am seeing....

This is the ad that the DU ad bot gave to me, first thing right after your post:

Pat Toomey for US Senate
Pennsylvania Needs Real Leadership Help Elect Pat Toomey Right Now!


He may be stupid for advertising here, or maybe it's Google Adwords' stupidity, but the scary thing is that overall in Pennsylvania Toomey WILL get votes, and lots of them.

Plus we have 50 counties still on paperless DRE voting machines, most by ES&S and Diebold (which has been bought up by ES&S.)

As I said, God help us all.

3. Report it to the administrators
Google ads are auto-generated and offending ones must be blocked manually.

Or, click like crazy because the Toomey campaign has to pay Google & DU for every time a user clicks on the ad.

4. Unfortunately Toomey has no primary challenger so he can pretend to be 'moderate'
as Specter, who has a challenger, pretends to be a liberal (as if liberals won't remember Anita Hill and Specter's cheerleading for Bush and the Iraq war all those years). Not to mention Specters health isn't so great so even if he beats Toomey, the seat will go back to republicans when the next governor of PA (who will be a republican) appoints Specter's replacement.


Please support Joe Sestak in the primary!
