Turn Right USA on Colbert

Stephen Col­bert decided in his run­ning gag about form­ing his own PAC to high­light both Turn Right USA and their ini­tial Jan­ice Hahn video. (Note I am break­ing my own rule con­cern­ing this ad because it is only a brief clip within the Col­bert Report.)

His own pri­or­i­ties not with­stand­ing thanks to Col­bert, the play count for the ad and the hit count for Turn Right USA should soar. I’m sure the Hahn cam­paign will love the atten­tion. In fact let’s take a look at what hap­pens when you search for “Jan­ice Hahn” on Youtube as of 7 a.m. this morn­ing EST:

Count the hits, that adds up to 700,000+ includ­ing the MSNBC report which played the entire ad. That’s sure to keep peo­ple unac­quainted with the charges in the ad.

And it gets worse for Hahn. If you look at the top 10 results only two of them are not directly speak­ing to the ad and one of those is the ini­tial news report that the ad is based on.

Now I object to the ad because I con­sider it (and still do) sex­ist and I don’t care for the lan­guage, but idea that Stephen “I’m whiter than won­der bread” Col­bert is accus­ing two black rap­pers of racism against blacks is rather inter­est­ing.

At least one of the rap­pers in ques­tion Uncle Head, objected on twitter.

Loudly:

Splack Pack btw is the name of the Rap group in the video.

So the end result of all of this is:

A whole new set of peo­ple not acquainted with the ad or the charges have been intro­duced to it.

The pri­mary asso­ci­a­tion for Jan­ice Hahn on YouTube is this video.

Turn Right USA has been granted instant national cred­i­bil­ity by one of the left’s attack organs and will likely result in an influx of con­tri­bu­tions

And of course I’m sure the both the Hahn cam­paign and Turn Right USA are absolutely thrilled that Col­bert has done this the day after Turn Right USA released this follow-​up video:

With a 75%-25% advan­tage D vs R in the pri­mary, the odds of Hahn los­ing her spe­cial elec­tion in CA-​36 are long, but she is dam­aged and democ­rats have been forced to use resources, includ­ing money and national air­time to counter that dam­age. What do you think will hap­pen if Ladd Ehlinger and/​or Turn right USA is turned loose on a closer campaign?

If the left is not wor­ried, they ought to be, and if Ehlinger wasn’t stopped by death threats like this, what will they end up doing next?

Update: Col­bert was granted his PAC by the gov­ern­ment today on two votes 60 & 51. Turn Right USA couldn’t buy this kind of publicity.

Stephen Colbert decided in his running gag about forming his own PAC to highlight both Turn Right USA and their initial Janice Hahn video. (Note I am breaking my own rule concerning this ad because it is only a brief clip within the Colbert Report.)

His own priorities not withstanding thanks to Colbert, the play count for the ad and the hit count for Turn Right USA should soar. I’m sure the Hahn campaign will love the attention. In fact let’s take a look at what happens when you search for “Janice Hahn” on Youtube as of 7 a.m. this morning EST:

Count da hits

Now I object to the ad because I consider it (and still do) sexist and I don’t care for the language, but idea that Stephen “I’m whiter than wonder bread” Colbert is accusing two black rappers of racism against blacks is rather interesting.

At least one of the rappers in question Uncle Head, objected on twitter.
