Can You Tell the Difference?

Kindler, over at Raising Kaine put up Take the Tom Davis Mailing Challenge!

Here is a sample

I have in front of me two glossy brochures from Tom Davis. One of them, sent a few months ago, was a Congressional update “prepared, published and mailed at taxpayer expense.” The other, sent more recently, was a campaign piece “Paid for by Tom Davis for Congress.”

In the tradition of those old commercials where people did blind taste tests of Coke and Pepsi, I am going to refer to these two brochures as “A” and “B”, offer some quotes from them, and see if you can tell which is which. Take the challenge – and see if you can tell the difference between Davis’s taxpayer-funded official updates and his campaign ads!

A: “Fighting for Fairfax’s Taxpayers, Families and Seniors.”
B: “Making Congress work for Northern Virginia families.”

A: “Tom Davis knows how important improving transportation and easing traffic congestion is to all of our families and neighbors.”
B: “Tom Davis is leading the charge to revitalize the overcrowded and aging Metro system.”

Can you tell the difference?
