New Perry Ad Hits Santorum for Pork

Austin employs a game show theme to attack the Keystone Stater for “irresponsible congressional earmarks” in new 60-second Iowa radio spot.

Announcer: “Santorum grabbed for a billion in earmarks – until voters kicked him out of office in a landslide.”

Read the script below.

Announcer: It’s ‘Wheel of Washington!’ I’m your host, Wink Tax-and-Spend! First question: Which Republican running for president voted for the Bridge to Nowhere earmark? Yes, Susie from Des Moines.

Susie: Rick Santorum?

Announcer: Correct! Santorum voted for the Bridge to Nowhere and a highway bill full of pork. Who personally demanded more than one billion dollars of earmarks in his 16 years in Congress? Jay from Ames.

Jay: Rick Santorum?

Announcer: Right! Santorum grabbed for a billion in earmarks – until voters kicked him out of office in a landslide. Audio bonus! Name this Congressional porker.

Rick Santorum: I have had a lot of earmarks. In fact, I’m very proud of all the earmarks I’ve put in bills.

Announcer: Jen, from Sioux City.

Jen: That’s Rick Santorum.

Announcer: In-deedy-duty! Santorum’s proud of feeding at the earmark trough in Congress. Soo-ee pig! That’s right, Iowa. On taxes and spending, if Rick Santorum wins, you lose.
