Good Candidate; Lousy Ad

While The Oracle will vote in the same way that Roger Abramson indicates he will in the Tennessee Governor's race, it must also be said that Abramson is right about the new Bryson ad. Those who know Bryson personally understand that he is a serious man capable of doing a good job as Governor. Those who don't know him will never get a glimpse of it in that commercial.

In addition, one might note that there are good reasons for the general principle that candidates should introduce themselves and their message and leave the negative attacks to underlings. It is a mistake for the largely unknown Bryson to be his own attack dog.

The Oracle has a good speaking voice, so he would be happy to play surrogate attack dog -- and campaign message manager.
