I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

Interesting 2008 House Ads

Alright, I admit, these are mostly from the Republican side, but here are some interesting House ads from 2008

First positive ones
Bill Cassidy (R-LA)

Cassidy beat Congressman Don Cazayoux

Lou Barletta (R-PA)

Barletta lost because of how well Obama did in PA

Negative Ads
Against Paul Carmouche (D-LA)

Carmouche barely lost

Against Raul Martinez (D-FL)

Martinez lost

Against Jim Esch (D-NE)

Esch lost

Against Tim Bee (R-AZ)

Bee lost...most DCCC from this cycle have a pretty similar theme to this ad, trying to tie Bush to every candidate

Most controversial ad of cycle, against Parker Griffith (D-AL), one station would not continue playing the ad

Griffith won.

One of the most talked about ads, Tom Feeney (R-FL)

Feeney lost

And finally just funny...
Against Dina Titus (D-NV) by Freedom's Watch

Titus Won

There are hundreds of House ads out there, these are some of the most interesting ads, and some of the most used themes from the cycle.
