My Commercial for Obama. (No Need to Pay Me Now, Barack. You Can Make Me Minister of Information If You Win.)

Putting on my marketing hat, here’s the commercial I would do for Obama.

(I’m accustomed to being paid for this — and, if the Obama campaign hired me, I would insist they pay me well — but since I don’t work for them, but do want him to win, I’m throwing this their way gratis.)

The scene: an eerie twilight-zone world that is the future if McCain wins. (A somber voiceover begins, “In the year 2008, John McCain was elected President…”) Families are living in cardboard boxes, having been dispossessed of their houses. Sick and dying people are massing outside emergency rooms by the hundreds, having been turned away for lack of insurance. Everybody is shooting everybody in the street, since everyone has guns. Young women who have been raped by psychotics who should have been institutionalized (but weren’t, for lack of government mental health funding) are delivering deformed babies, because they have no choice. Old people are starving because their stock market investments tanked (due to lack of government regulation of the banking industry) and social security got privatized, and also tanked. American bombs fall on civilian neighborhoods in Tehran. Anti-American riots choke the streets of Rome, Paris, Islamabad, Tokyo and Shanghai.

Then the commercial ends with a tagline ripped from Palin:

“McCain-Palin? Thanks, but no thanks.”

    …and, somewhere along the Pakistan/Afghanistan border, Osama Bid Ladin reclines on a sofa, cracks open a frosty, and leans back to watch the Superbowl on his wide-screen plasma. Thumb’s-up to cam. Freeze.

    Unfortunately the Liberals control the Democratic party, especially in the last two elections. It’s a losing formula for the Democrats, and the last so-called liberal that was voted in the White House was in the 1960’s. The Democrats had their best chance in Hillary and they sure blew that. Now we have two of the most liberal senators on the ticket…no wonder McCain/Palin will win, unfortunately.

  3. Ted, you certainly weren’t old enough to have written LBJ’s media ads in 1964 against Barry Goldwater!

    “Old people are starving because their stock market investments tanked (due to lack of government regulation of the banking industry.”

    Am I wrong on this or isn’t regulation of the banking industry in the hands of Congress?…which I assume would be in control of Democrats…

    Your proffered ad to Obama is so effective…I wish you would use your talent to proffer an ad to the McCain campaign…I’ll bet those mega-rich Republicans would hire you in a New York minute and pay you handsomely.

    After all these years, do you realize now silly your article sounds? “Young women who have been raped by psychotics who should have been institutionalized” clearly NOW refers to Muslims in America thanks to Muslim Obama. BTW how is your healthcare premium doing? 🙂
