NV-03: Dina Titus' New Commercial... An Extra Special Behind the Scenes Look!
Last night, I dropped by Sonata Park in Seven Hills, a few miles uphill from me in Green Valley. Rep. Dina Titus (D-Great!) was shooting her new commercial, and she asked local volunteers to come over and be a part of it. What you see above and below is pretty much what happened. As always, they did a BIG barbeque for everyone. All the volunteers went down to the grassy area when called. Oh, and we all had to do at least five cheers before the camera guy got everything he needed.
And yes, there were at most six teabaggers protesting. (FYI, there were HUNDREDS of us helping out with Dina's commercial!) They didn't even last the whole time. What they were exactly protesting I don't know, and one guy seemed to get a real kick out of pretending he was the one directing us. Did they get lost after Joe Heck's campaign manager was caught trying to spy on us, and subsequently escorted away from the camera? OK, whatever, an actual "tea party" event is much less glamorous and much more pathetic than what's portrayed on the teevee.
So anyway, that's all there is to it. Dina does have a knack for getting out those grassroots progressives that make up "Team Titus" to come over and help and put her over the top whenever she's in need. I guess that's why I always have a soft spot for her. She's there for us when we need her in Congress, and in turn the locals come out and support her.
Sometimes, it's just nice to see a scandal-free Congresscritter who actually remembers where she came from. :-)
