There’s No Sublety In Political Advertising Bitch Sessions

According to The Texas Tribune, 24 newspapers around the Longhorn state, ran a full-page ad yesterday with a picture of Gov. Rick Perry and the word “coward” in large, capital letters.
Back to Basics PAC, the anti-Perry group behind the ad, did receive push back from one paper. Heart-owned Houston Chronicle opted not to run the ad.
