Kids Say Allen West Needs a “time out” in new Patrick Murphy ad
Beginning today, Patrick Murphy’s campaign will air its second television ad of the general election. Entitled “Time Out,” the 30-second spot is backed by a significant buy on network TV in the West Palm Beach-Treasure Coast market.
“Time Out” features grade-school children repeating some of Allen West’s most notorious insults, illustrating the divisiveness of his words and how inappropriate they are for a member of Congress.
Text: “You are not a lady.” “You are the most vile and despicable.” “Member of the Communist Party.” “Get the ‘bleep’ out of the United States.” “You’re a threat to the gene pool.” Allen West said all these things and worse. But bullying and name-calling have no place on the playground, or in Congress. I’m Patrick Murphy, and I approve this message. I’ll reach across the aisle and solve problems. And Allen West? “You need a time out!”
