The Republicans are now deploying one of the most devastating political ads I have witnessed in ages. The Alabama Liberation Front has a wonderful encapsulation of the cosmic dissonance that is being deployed (hat-tip to Instapundit) by the RNC.
I mean, Republicans can *do* humor?
This media attack is utterly ingenious and fully within the decorum of the political fray and, in point of fact, holds itself *above* the fray by not shouting, by not pounding tables and by not scare mongering. It is very hard to be afraid when you are laughing. And this is from the political party of stuffed suits, primness and greedy business tycoons. Where have they been HIDING the geniuses behind these sorts of things? Drop one of this type of ad every week for the next two years and the Democratic Party will either have a collective coronary or be laughed out of existence. The whining and moaning and bitching are already starting and the more this gentle ribbing continues the worse the Democrats will get because they are beholden to the humorless LEFT.
Keep it up Republicans! I still have loads of disdain for a Party that cannot stand by what it got to majority on, but this form of advertising is cleansing to the body politic. And the Zucker folks are *Democrats* and believe that this will help express their feelings for a Party deserting them.
Pray that the Democrats remain clueless and committed enough to not figure this out as humor is so far out of their realm these days that they do not even understand it. They DESERVE IT.
And when it is turned around on you, then let me say, right up front, that so do YOU. But a pie fight has to start somewhere and I suggest you keep baking them, week-in and week-out. Until we get the politics we deserve: because if we can't laugh at it we would be crying.
