Democrat Runs “House Of Cards” Campaign Ad

February 2, 2020 0 By Sebastian Fry


TODAY MARKS A SET OF SPECIAL
ELECTIONS AND SO THERE IS GEORGIA SIX THE DISTRICT THAT
WE TALKED ABOUT THAT A LOT HERE AND TO M…TIS BUT THERE IS
ALSO, AND MICHAEL BROUGHT THIS UP A FEW SHOWS AGO, THE
SOUTH CAROLINA FIFTH DISTRICT WHICH IS MAKING NEWS
FOR A FAIRLY UNIQUE REASON. I HAD KNOWN THIS, BUT SOUTH
CAROLINA’S FIFTH DISTRICT IS ACTUALLY THE DISTRICT OF FRANK
UNDER ONE OF HOUSE OF CARDS. HE IS FROM GAFFNEY. TURNS OUT HE IS FICTIONAL,
BUT THAT IS THE DISTRICT THAT HE ORIGINALLY REPRESENTED
AND THAT DID NOT GO UNNOTICED IN THE ACTUAL RACE IN
THE FIFTH DISTRICT. LET’S SHOW A GRAPHIC. YOU ARE GOING TO SEE HERE,
THIS IS A VIDEO MADE BY THE DEMOCRAT RUNNING IN THAT
ELECTION USING THAT POP-CULTURE CONNECTION TO TRY TO
MAKE HIS POINT. I’M ARCHIE PARNELL. I KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT OUR US TAX
CODE TO BORE YOU TO TEARS. I KNOW TRADE LAWS AND HOW TO
CREATE JOBS, TOO. AND I ALSO KNOW A FEW OTHER
THINGS. WE HAVE A SAYING IN WHERE I’M
FROM, NEVER SLAP A MAN CHEWING TOBACCO. ALWAYS READ THE FINE PRINT. SHAKE WITH THE RIGHT HAND, BUT
HOLD A ROCK WITH YOUR LEFT. THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED
STATES FIRED THE FBI DIRECTOR. THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED, IT IS
NOT ON THE SHOW. WHENEVER YOU GET SOMEONE ON THE
ROPES, YOU THROW A RIGHT TO THE GUY AND A LEFT TO THE JOB. DONALD TRUMP SHARED CLASSIFIED
INFO WITH THE RUSSIANS INSIDE THE OVAL OFFICE. YEP, THAT’S A THING, TOO. YOU SEE THIS WOMAN? I LOVE HER MORE THAN SHARKS LOVE
BLOOD. ARCHIE? EVEN ACHILLES WAS ONLY AS
STRONG AS HIS HEEL. SLEEP IS FOR THE WEEK. COME TO BED, ARCHIE, IT’S
ALMOST 9 PM. THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF
CONGRESSMEN: DOORMATS AND MATADORS. I WILL BE A MATADOR FOR YOU. HOW’D I DO? SO THAT’S A DEMOCRAT IN THE RACE
THAT IS A PRETTY GREAT AD. I AM SURE HOUSE OF CARDS IS HUGE
IN THAT DISTRICT. IT IS A BIG SHOW NATIONALLY. IS POSSIBLE SOME PEOPLE WATCH
IT. THE REASON I PUT HER ON THE SHOW
IS I JUST RECENTLY WATCH THE MOST RECENT SEASON, AND IT
WAS GREAT. THAT WAS VERY APPEALING TO ME
THAT I DON’T KNOW THAT HE NECESSARILY SOLD THE CHARACTER
QUITE AS WELL AS KEVIN SPACEY, BUT LOOK WE WANT
PEOPLE TO TRY TO HUMANIZE THEMSELVES, THE JOKE WITH THE
WIFE IS NICE. IT SEEMS CRAZY, CRAZY THINGS
HAPPEN IN POLITICS. TRUMP ON THAT DISTRICT BY 17
POINTS. WHO SEE WAS A? MICK MULVANEY. JOHN SPRATT HAD IT FOR
FOREVER. HE WAS A DEMOCRAT. A HANDSHAKE WAS JOHN SPRATT
STAYING. HE SHOOK HER HAND. WE’VE A PRESIDENT LIKE THAT. THAT IS TRUE. AGAIN, DEMOCRAT HAD HELD THE
SEAT. IT IS NOT INCONCEIVABLE. IT’S SEEMS SO UNLIKELY IN THE
CLIMATE WE LIVE IN NOW, BUT IF REPUBLICANS ARE UNMOTIVATED
AND DON’T TURN OUT, AND CLEARLY, MY HUNCH IS IF HE
CAMPAIGNED WELL AND MET PEOPLE, THEY PROBABLY LIKE HIM. I AM SURE THEY LIKE HIM. I’M SURE HE WON’T WHEN. TO PUT SOME NUMBERS TO IT,
HILLARY CLINTON LOST SOUTH CAROLINA BY NEARLY 19 POINTS IN
2016 AND THAT PARTICULAR DISTRICT, THE FIFTH DISTRICT OF
SOUTH CAROLINA’S 19 PERCENTAGE POINTS MORE REPUBLICAN THAN THE
NATION AS A WHOLE. I THINK TRUMP B CLINTON BY 17
POINTS AT THE THAT IS GOING TO BE ROUGH. WHICH I DEFINE POLLING, IT
DOESN’T LOOK LIKE THERE IS ANY OFFICIAL PULLING. THERE WAS AN INTERNAL POLL THAT SHOWED HIM DOWN BY 10. IT IS AN INTERNAL POLL WHICH IS
USUALLY SOMEWHAT MORE POSITIVE. THAT IS GOING TO BE TOUGH. I LOOKED INTO ARCHIE PARNELL. ON HIS CAMPAIGN WEBSITE, HE
HAS SOME NICE GENERIC STATEMENTS ABOUT A LOT OF
ISSUES. PREVIOUSLY WORKED AS A LAWYER
FOR GOLDMAN SACHS AND SOME PEOPLE ARE GOING TO TAKE ISSUE
FOR THAT. THERE IS NO TONE OF SPECIFICS ON
A LOT OF THE POLICIES. HE IS COMING FROM OUTSIDE OF
POLITICS, I GUESS WE WILL GET TO THAT HE IS ABLE TO
OVERCOME WHAT APPEARS TO BE A NEARLY INSURMOUNTABLE
REPUBLICAN LEADER NOT DISTRICT,
