Leppert’s “Vote No” Radio Ad Wants You to “Fight the Powers That Be”

We’ve all seen Mayor Tom Leppert’s “Vote No” commercial–stark white backdrop, piano softly playing in the background (you know, this video), but I hadn’t paid much attention to the Leppert ads airing on local radio stations. This morning on my way to work, I was listening to KRNB, and immediately following Brian McKnight’s “Anytime” (you know you like it–and he’s playing at the Meyerson July 8) came an ad from Leppert. A kind of ’70s funk/groove played in the background as he urged folks to vote no and, at the end of the ad, the lyrics to the background music were: “Fight the powers that be.”  Really, Tom Leppert? Really? Since when is the mayor of Dallas not synonymous with “the powers that be”?
