Menino Attack Ad Available

Menino duckingThe Make Way for Menino attack ad we described by Maura Hennigan's crew is online here. It's a Windows Media file. about 32 seconds, 2.3MB.

I am with those who say she needs to produce a real platform instead of picking a handful of examples to suggest that Menino needs to go. Yet, this is likely as effective as the radio spots. Blue Star Media does a good down-and-dirty attack ad. People will pay attention and it is bound to get her some votes.
