New Barrett ad: Time to put Madison on a diet

In a TV ad unveiled a few days before the start of the state Democratic convention, Tom Barrett promises to put "Madison and state government" on a diet.

In the spot, which began today in multiple markets following announcement of a plan to save $1.1 billion, Barrett is sitting at a diner counter and says "when it comes to spending, the politicians in Madison aren't counting their calories."

Barrett says the state has "boards and commissions we don't even need" and "we pay for Cadillac health care for convicted felons."

He says it's "all got to stop" as he directs viewers to go to his Web site to see his plans for cutting the size of state government.

A waitress then walks up and asks, "Tom, how about some pie?"

"Sounds great, but I'm cutting back," Barrett says.
