TPM has been all over the bizarre John Perry “military coup against Obama” column at Newsmax.com–an incredibly popular conservative site, as I discovered in my story on WorldNetDaily. The liberal BlueMassGroup blog has an interesting wrinkle. Scott Brown, the credible GOP candidate for the open Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat, has been running ads on Newsmax.com. As luck would have it, one ad appeared next to Perry’s column.
I’ve asked Brown’s campaign whether it is advertising directly with Newsmax, whether this was cycled in, to their surprise, because of some larger ad buy, and whether they’ll cancel whatever contract led to this ad. Web ads have stung campaigns before: In 2005, Tim Kaine scrapped a blog ad promoting his Virginia gubernatorial campaign after it appeared on the Website of the late Steve Gilliard, an African-American blogger who made a cartoon of Michael Steele in minstrel garb. That story made The Washington Post.
