The challenger to the House majority leader has added rhyme to the reasoning put forth in his campaign ads.
Actress Cheryl Felicia Rhoads, who portrayed Mother Goose in the 1980s children's video treasury, reprised her role to cut two radio spots for the campaign of Republican Charles Lollar.
Lollar is running against Rep. Steny Hoyer in Maryland's 5th district, considered by political analysts to be a solid Democratic seat. As of Sept. 30, Hoyer had $1.65 million cash-on-hand in comparison to Lollar's $89,045.
The 60-second spot goes:
Hickory dickory dock
Congress ran out the clock
They didn't pass a budget so they could run home
But they passed costly bills like healthcare's huge tome
Businessman, husband and father Charles Lollar
This former Marine respects your family's dollar
But Steny Hoyer spends so much more than we make
And he's had 30 years — Enough is enough, for goodness' sake
So what should voters do
When they go to the polls on Nov. 2?
"No more fables," continues Rhoads, who now runs an acting school in Falls Church, Va., advocating that voters change course in the 5th district.
