ALBANY—A reader points out a fun (if coincidental) bit of circularity having to do with those blistering anti-Paterson health care ads.
They were produced by Knickerbocker SKD.
Knickerbocker, the Josh Isay-led firm that advised Caroline Kennedy in her unsuccessful attempt to become a U.S. senator.
David Paterson, who a blind man in the ad asks, “Why are you doing this to me?”
Is this Isay’s accidental revenge?
“Josh is as talented a political operative as there is in New York, it just happens he was not directly involved in the production of this ad,” said Brian Conway, a spokesman for the Greater New York Hospital Association, which co-produced the ad with union SEIU 1199. “We’ve worked with Knickerbocker SKD for quite some time, and we think they’re great.”
(Waiting to hear back from Isay.)
