Sorry Democratic Senatorial Campaign Comittee, but your latest little video project kind of  fails. The plan is to attack two Republican candidates for Senate, our own Charlie Crist and New Hampshire Attorney General Kelly Ayotte (who?), by comparing them to Sarah Palin. Reason: They're all resigning.

It's a really clumsy "Republicans are all Sarah Palin" attack. First of all, Crist has made no plans to resign and I doubt he will after the Palin bruhaha. Secondly, what about all those Democratic governors who so eagerly resigned to take positions in the Obama administration? Not to mention the dozens of Democratic candidates who are attempting to ditch one elected office for a better one. 

Thirdly, the voices are a major fail. There are so many decent Sarah Palin impersonators out there, and this is what you got? Was this lady not available? And since when does Charlie Crist sound like a voice over artists from a PBS Civil War documentary? 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
