Sharron Angle's campaign is on a roll, churning out several excellent ads in a row.  Her latest, entitled "Faces," may be her most effective yet by applying the "extremist" label to the candidate who most deserves it: Harry Reid.



TRANSCRIPT:
On Harry Reid’s watch, Nevada’s unemployment rate has shot past 14 percent—highest in the country.

Our foreclosure rate is highest in the nation.

Home values have dropped almost 50 percent.

Those aren’t just numbers.

They’re people who’ve lost their jobs.

Families who’ve lost their homes.

Harry Reid has dragged Nevada down to perhaps its lowest point ever.

And he wants to call me an extremist?

I’m Sharron Angle and I approve this message.
This ad will play very well in Nevada.  Angle talks directly to voters--leveling a brutal, just-the-facts-m'am indictment of Reid's failed leadership.  She not only addresses the number one issue on voters' minds, she does it while deftly turning Reid's preferred campaign narrative ("extremist!!!") against him. 

More please.
