Spin Control

Today’s fun video: We could use something like this in Spokane

 

Normally, Spin Control wouldn't pay any mind to a campaign commercial from a mayoral race in New Jersey. But this one is so much fun that it makes one wonder what sort of creative spots we could see in the Spokane municpal campaigns if candidates put their minds to it.

First, Spokane probably rhymes with more things than "North Bergen."

Second, Mayor Mary Verner can sing, as she's proven in the past at columnist Doug Clark's annual street music event. Maybe all she needs are some good campaign lyrics to adapt "Proud Mary."

Third, we've got several months for the candidates who can't sing to dig up creative Web video enthusiasts.
