These ads have been airing in the Kansas City market this morning with a frequency more like late October than late August. And the donors?
…American Crossroads GPS, on the other hand, is incorporated under Section 501(c)4, which requires it to spend the bulk of its cash focusing on issues, but frees it from having to disclose the names of its donors. In fact, it won’t be required to publicly report any of its finances until at least May 2011…
Male announcer: The message is clear. Seventy-one percent of Missouri voters don’t want government mandated health care. We want to make our own health care decisions.
Female announcer: But Robin Carnahan disagrees, while seventy-one percent of us voted no Carnahan sided with lobbyists, big unions, and Washington insiders to force Obamacare on us.
Male announcer: Missouri’s Lieutenant Governor is suing the federal government so we can keep our health care.
Female announcer: Tell Carnahan to get in touch with Missourians and support the health care challenge.

Grassroots? Yeah, right. Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie are really grassrootsie (via our friends at Fired Up).
The ad is in need of a tiny bit of editing:
“…We want to make our own health care decisions…” Correction: republicans want insurance companies to deny benefits, continue rescission, and increase premiums while reducing benefits.
Carnahan sided with lobbyists, big unions, and Washington insiders to force Obamacare on us…” Correction: Roy Blunt (r-lobbyists) sided with lobbyists and Washington insiders to block access to health care for those who desperately need it.
“…Missouri’s Lieutenant Governor is suing the federal government so
we can keep our health care…” Correction: Missouri’s Lieutenant Governor is suing the federal government so he can posture in the hopes that he can position himself for a run for higher office in 2012.
There, that’s much more accurate.
