Bad political ads: WTF? Edition
Here’s a pretty amazing cross-polanization of two subjects I write about; one I feel compelled to write about because seeing it makes me cringe so (the GOP further alienating the women’s vote) and the other I write about because it amuses me to no end (bad political ads). So I have absolutely no idea what to do with this.
On the one hand, it’s a pretty terrible schadenfreude-inducing ad. The production value is high and the acting is fine, but that just kind of adds to the mystery of why it was ever approved. The message appears to be targeting women voters, but it appears to have been written and conceived by frat guys. Or to be more exact, it appears to have been written and conceived by the kind of frat guys that can’t understand why their dates don’t think it’s hilarious when they make rape jokes. I don’t know whether I want to love it or hate it in all of it’s terribleness.
It’s really, really creepy.
You have been warned.
