There have been plenty of Republican ads (as well as one Democratic one) over the years involving a pledge to stop something (mostly Obamacare) in its tracks by literally shooting it in the face. (Hell, there was one guy who had a freaking cannon in his ad.) And Iowa Republican candidate Joni Ernst has continued the trend with a new ad evoking the imagery of her literally shooting at the health care law.
The voiceover narration in the ad says, “Once she sets her sights on Obamacare, Joni’s gonna unload.” And cue the montage of shots being fired at the target-as-Obamacare stand-in.
If Ernst’s name sounds familiar to you, you might remember her from another ad earlier this year in which she said, “I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm, so when I get to Washington, I’ll know how to cut pork.”
