Not to worry, though. Along comes Dennis with a bucket of water labeled "FREEDOM," throwing it on Pelosi and causing the Pelosi actress to melt away. "I'm John Dennis," he says, introducing himself to Dorothy and her friends. "I'm running for Congress. I believe in following the Constitution, and I believe in reducing debt -- and I believe it's time to throw a little water on politicians who say one thing and do another, like Nancy Pelosi."
Dave Weigel points out that this ad is the work of none other than Ladd Ehlinger Jr., the man behind the Dale Peterson and Rick "Gather Your Armies" Barber ads in Alabama. It should be noted, though, that Dennis isn't your standard right-wing Republican like those guys in Alabama. He's actually a Ron Paul-style Republican, supports gay marriage, and appeared at an anti-war rally alongside Paul and former San Francisco Supervisor and Green Party politician Matt Gonzalez.
So yes, in San Francisco even the outlandish right-wingers are liberals.
