Demon sheep make encore appearance

Washington (CNN) - California politicos just can't seem to get their fill of mutton.

Following in the footsteps of Republican Carly Fiorina's Senate campaign, the California Democratic Party and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee have released a "demon sheep" Web video of their own.

In February, Fiorina released a quirky Web video accusing fellow Republican Rep. Tom Campbell of being a fiscal liberal – a jab that took the form of an ominous three-minute clip depicting gathering storm clouds and evil-looking livestock.

Fast forward three months and the tables have turned on Fiorina with the release of "Demon Sheep II," a faux movie trailer complete with plenty of red-eyed sheep and a narrator that says in a booming voice: "Carly has been very, very B-A-A-A-A-A-A-D."

The video, subtitled "The Fleecing of California," mainly targets Fiorina, but also mentions her fellow Republican candidates Tom Campbell and Chuck DeVore.

The video's narrator accuses Fiorina of pushing jobs oversees, illustrated by "demon sheep" being transplanted onto the Great Wall of China, in front of the Taj Mahal and the Eiffel Tower - places the ad asserts Fiorina shipped California jobs.

The winner of the Republican primary, now just over a month away, will take on Democrat Barbara Boxer in the general election.

    Without Demon Sheep it would be impossible for a Demo-rat to get elected!

    I think the folks in California are intellegent enough to make adult responsible decisions without all the Hollywood animated symbolism to press their point.
    I find it a bit insulting myself.

    These ads are not outstanding in their field! Are we being warned about being fleeced? Someone trying to pull the wool over our eyes? I know the the republicans follow their leaders like lamb to the slaughter – but silly ads won't cause anyone to make a ewe turn! Keep to the issues!

    California-what is it now $20 billion in the red? Governor Moonbeam should be able to set things right for ya......or maybe you should elect Bill Maher, Sean Penn, Dave Letterman or Ashton Kucher and his wife Mom, Demi as a dual governing team for better representation... yeah that's the ticket!

    Liberal socialism is BAAAAA AAAAAAAD when it comes to keeping your own money, just ask the people in Greece!

    You'd think such a progressive group as the Democratic Party could come up with something original.

    Since it's obvious now that Palin is in it solely for the bucks one has to suspect she's being paid for her "support". Ah, but she looks good, doesn't she!

    The progressives over the years have dumb down the California people so much that they wouldn't know right from wrong

    My fellow decision-making California Democrats are getting "stupider" by the minute. Californians are smart enough to be able to see through all the haze. They will support someone that can best represent them once elected.

    Just like President NObama, are my fellow Democrats across this great land getting desperate.

    Americans, whether Democrats or Republicans will remember the hatchet job done by the people in power. And the fact that the "will of the people" is trashed time and time again.

    To add insult to injury, President NObama demands civility; but he does not know the meaning of the word.

    Fellow Americans, stay strong and stand tall. Don't ever allow the NObama administration intimidate you.

    Stay tuned!
