Sometimes Evil Wins?

That's the message Chuck Poochigian's latest ad imparts. The ad seems to say that Jerry Brown is going to help evil win. Or Jerry Brown is the evil that wins if you don't vote for Chuck Poochigian. Meanwhile, across the screen flash graveside shots of weeping widows and gang bangers hanging out of low riders, guns drawn and blasting away. Combine this ad with the headless watercooler charmers and you have a none-too-subtle campaign of racial fear that's enough to make any political ad junkie stand up and cheer "Willy Horton!" in approval.

Well done, Chuck. After seeing that ad not only do I still think you'll lose, but I'm kinda bummed about that whole evil thing.
