Kirk's Ad

Kirk Humphreys ads have hit the air bigtime. It goes by pretty fast but my memory of the ad is that he doesn't say he is a Republican running for Senate but a "conservative" running for Senate. That's probably as true a statement you'll hear in this upcoming election. But Humphreys is way beyond conservative on the spectrum - he's almost Inhofian. The other interesting aspect of this first TV ad is Kirk's use of the Billy Graham Crusade in Oklahoma City as a reason to vote for him. Presumably Kirk takes credit for getting Graham to come to OKC and presumably religious crusades are now right up there with attracting a $1 billion semiconductor plant to the city (which he didn't). Oklahoma City also got a new Buddhist Temple last year but Kirk didn't mention that.
