“When asked why he put the ad up, DeJean told CNN Thursday that ‘I’m a dentist and I don’t think this country is headed in the right direction.’” THANK YOU, WILLIAM DEJEAN. That’s what we’ve all been thinking. We are dentists and we don’t think this country is headed in the right direction! We are dentists and we don’t think this country is headed in the right direction! WE ARE DENTISTS AND WE DON’T THINK THIS COUNTRY IS HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION!
DeJean adds that he thinks people are having buyer’s remorse about President Barack Obama and says the current administration is ruining the Democratic Party. He says he spent $5,000 to create the commercial and tells CNN that besides New Orleans, the ad will run in Washington, New York and Los Angeles, and possible Houston. DeJean says he chose to first run the ad in New Orleans because he’s a native of the city and because the city’s in the news due to the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
“I didn’t expect to see any ads about 2012 before the midterms in 2010, although this will likely not be a big TV buy, Mr. DeJean clearly is motivated to see change,” says Evan Tracey, Campaign Media Analysis Group and CNN’s consultant on political TV ad spending.
Yes, you don’t expect it, but never underestimate the will of random crazy citizens of the United States to buy crazy ads.
