The National Rifle Association has an idea to get it’s anti-Obama message out at the last minute.
The NRA wants to buy space on the plastic bags that newspapers use for home delivery.
The Virginian-Pilot reported: The National Rifle Association hopes to deliver anti-Barack Obama advertising blasts to thousands of doorsteps on Election Day.
The Fairfax-based gun lobby has contacted newspapers in Virginia and other battleground states about wrapping their home-delivered products on Nov. 4 in a plastic bag that is said to read: “Vote for Freedom … Defeat Obama.”
That ad proposal was rejected by The Virginian-Pilot.
Editor & Publisher reports that some newspapers have agreed to run the bags before Election Day, while others have declined.
