OH-02 Dem Steve Black: Campaign Jingle Ready For Rural Radio

CINCINNATI (TDB) -- Democratic congressional candidate Steve Black has a minute-long campaign jingle that you can hear by clicking this link. It's called "Backin' Black" and begins airing this week on rural radio stations in Ohio's 2nd Congressional District. The lyrics knock lightweight politicians who "vote just like a buttlerfly and sting like a daisy." No names are mentioned. It also ties into 2008's top campaign themes: The jingle says he'll keep jobs at home and bring the soldiers back from Iraq.

Black is competing against Vic Wulsin for the OH-02 Dem nomination. Last week, she released Wulsin Girl, which delivered a splash on YouTUBE. The music video was written and performed by Ann Driscoll, a former Wulsin volunteer. Black's campaign manager, Dan Herkert, said the radio jingle was created by the campaign's advertising operation and was paid for by the campaign.

  1. The "Wulsin Girl" and "Backin' Black" songs are two of the worst I have ever heard.

  2. One Square --

    Even worse than "Sylvia's Mother?" Greg Reece, a friend, tells me that nothing is worse than Paul Anka's "Having My Baby." And, for those old enough, there are "Hey Paul" and "Hey Paula." Those are seriously crummy.

    Maybe somebody could spin this: At least the two OH-02 Dems are doing something for the music industry, which is having hard times.

  3. Hi Bill- Up until now, I haven't seen Steve Black make any explicit criticisms of Wulsin. If he really intends to run for Congress, how can he distinguish himself from his opponent? Call me a cynic, but I am beginning to wonder if this run is purely a stunt to loudly announce that he is now a Dem. Is this an expedient way to gain biusiness for his lawfirm (Graydon, Head and Ritchey) now that the state has changed to Democratic hands? Do you have any idea how much business his firm has done or is doing with the state?

    Uh, Bill, you yourself mentioned earlier, in a quasi-correction that Ann Driscoll was once a PAID campaign worker for Wulsin. Why are you reverting back to the "former volunteer" meme?

    What difference does it make ?

    The video was not paid for !

    Yet, it is more professional than the 'black mole's' rhetoric !

    PATHETIC !

    HAD ENOUGH, VOTE, for a real, DEMOCRAT 2008 !

  7. What's with all the bold, italic typing? Is someone feeling threatened?

    Regardless - both ditties leave a lot to be desired. Both made me cringe and immediately think "is this how we gain credibility as Dem candidates?" through a sing song?
