A Des Moines Public School teacher and treasurer for the Des Moines Education Area (teachers’ union) called Samy El-Baroudi expressed excitement after filming an ad for Congresswoman Cindy Axne.

“We got to play angry conservatives!,” El-Baroudi wrote. “Look for my acting debut!!!”


El-Baroudi isn’t sure if the ad will air on TV as he noted the campaign “didn’t tell us much.”

His sign said “save America from the LIBS.”

El-Baroudi, who is listed as a teacher for the Des Moines Public Schools Virtual Campus, said it is “much more fun playing the villain than the hero” in his reference to playing “angry conservatives.”

It could be said, however, that El-Baroudi has experience as an angry liberal, which provided him enough experience to pretend to be an “angry conservative.”
