Bernie's upstate ad

Is completely insulting. He promotes his support of family farming with a testimonial by a farmer from... Vermont.

Seriously? He couldn't tailor the ad to NY at all?

1. You know the farmer is from Vermont how?

 

I am just curious. Did he have a I love VT shirt on?

It might also help us to get the real context of the ad if you linked to a YouTube copy.

4. He took the "cow country" thing a literal too literally.

 

Not many actual farmers up there.

12. Yep - definite drop the last few years...

"The state lost 23 percent of its dairy farms in five years, from 2001 to 2007. In 2007, the state had nearly 5,700 dairy farms, down from nearly 7,400 in 2002, according to the USDA."

5. I bet the family farmers of upstate NY don't find it insulting, and I bet they vote overwhelmingly

 

for Bernie Sanders. Your faux outrage is noted though.

14. HRC - "I remember waking early one morning, to a strange sound...

It was... screaming. Some kind of screaming, like a child's voice. I went downstairs, outside. I crept up into the barn. I was so scared to look inside, but I had to. The cows - the cows were screaming. First I tried to free them. I... I opened the gate to their pen, but they wouldn't run. They just stood there, confused. They wouldn't run.
I took one cow, and I ran away as fast as I could. I thought, I thought if I could save just one, but... he was so heavy. So heavy. "

15. LOL! After her performance on the subway I wouldn't let her near a cow.

The SNL skits would be priceless though.

17. It is almost as bad as Hillary's ad showing her eating roasted kittens...

What? You want a link? We don't need no stinking links.


If it's this one, I love it. It played here in Texas too, and it covers all farmers.



Rock is right.
