Red meat video for counter-revolutionaries.

  1. I feel like that comic book guy from the Simpsons, but this video feels all wrong.

    It’s totally red meat, and seems targeted at people who would have a hard time voting for John Mccain because he’s too liberal. I don’t think it’s really by or for people who voted for Obama and Pelosi and democrats at large. It’s very dramatic captioning, but it’s like typing and entire email in BOLDCAPS, it kinda would have worked better to emphasize certain points with the dramatic flying letters instead of expecting me to read the entire thing at a 5 seconds per word pace.

    Like I said, I feel like a pedant here, but this reminds me of Glenn Beck crying that today, it’s literally “liberty or death”. I love those fundamental values and agree with most of the ideas here (And with liberty or death generally, even), but it’s not the kind of point that works if you lay it on too thick.

    Of course, maybe this was made by someone who voted for Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama. While being sympathetic to red meat right wing values. I feel bad for whoever woke up and realized they were bamboozled like that. It would be like a nun working at Planned Parenthood.

  2. Perhaps it was for Althouse.

  3. Ann Althouse has a very challenging blog. She’s got the best and worst commenters on the internet. Sometimes she is very insightful and funny. Sometimes she is ridiculously dense. And I don’t mean this in a ‘I like her when she agrees with me’ way. She has this Bill O’Reilly thing, where she wants both sides to be mad as some vindication of her neutrality’s value.

    She’s criticized Obama, many times unfairly, but often in extremely predictable ways that are conspicuously issues that Mccain was obviously going to be much closer to her desires.

    I don’t think she’s earnest, though her blog is good enough that I read it all the time anyway. She plays this coy game and I think her attempt to be clever is actually cheap and hypocritical.

    Anyway, whatever group of people wanted these principles followed and voted for Mccain or Pelosi is perhaps in need of some professional help. And this valuable advertisement which is tailor made for them.

    I think it’s good red meat for the right, if you just ignore the premise that it’s by an Obama voter. A little amateurish, but I prefer that to slick.
