Maggie The Dog Torturer Hassan, defeated State Senate candidate in 2010 and current candidate for governor, is up on channel 9 with the first in a series of commercials.
Maggie looks straight into the camera and brags about her accomplishments as a state senator. She talks about what she "fought" for. Were I advising The Dog Torturer (and she certainly will never ask), I'd say to--
Use the word "work for" rather than "fight"; it's a bit over the top.
But most of all, spend a few more sheckles on production of the spots. When you talk about kindergarten and forcing teens to stay in school till they're 18, perhaps rather than seeing your dour face for the entire 30 seconds, Maggie, maybe you could cut to a shot of you with smiling youth.
Of course, I'm not inclined to support Maggie The Dog Torturer anyway, but I think the commercial is a flop.
Were I a Democrat (and I'm not), I'd probably vote for Jackie Cilley in the primary although I must admit to being fascinated by this newcomer Bill Kennedy. On Channel 9 last week, he mentioned how he doesn't like to kill anything, including flies and ants and such. I had just finished reading the Walter Cronkite biography, and I recall reading the same thing about the veteran CBS anchor. Walter told about killing a wren one time. When the dying wren looked up to him as if to say, "Why did you go and do that?” Walter decided he wouldn't kill any more.
Of course, Maggie has no such compassion. Whenever I refer to her as the Dog Torturer, people ask me why. The answer is simply. One of my proudest moments as an elected official was helping out in the effort to ban the cruel and unwanted "sport" of greyhound racing. Working with the Grey2K folks out of Massachusetts, we finally succeeded last session, but no thanks to Maggie. Right to the very end, Maggie displayed a slavish devotion to Seabrook Park and "fought" (even attempting parliamentary tricks at the last minute) to perpetuate this cruel pastime that very few people want to watch any more.
A century ago, Maggie would most likely have been a "fighter" to retain "cock fighting".
She is no friend of animals.
Maggie is no Bill Kennedy when it comes to animals; she's no Walter Cronkite.
Yes indeed, she is Maggie The Dog Torturer and gubernatorial wannabe.
You won't here that on her cheap tawdry 30 second spots.
"Wake Up Maggie, I think I got something to say to you."
Torturing dogs is not a good thing!
