So, this last week we’ve seen a young adult talking about her ‘first time’, an ad filled with sexual innuendo and references; followed by younger children with sad little faces and drawn mouths singing wanly about the wanton destruction of the country due to their parents’ foolish votes for republicans and now this:
MoveOn.org has teamed up with Michael Moore to produce a new pro Obama advertisement. Filmed in a supposed ‘nursing home’ the ad features scripted octo- and nonagenarians who tell us just what they’re going to do if Mitt Romney ‘steals’ the election. The commercial is vile and foul mouthed, not representative of the seniors most of us know and respect as the Greatest Generation.
Can this election get any further in the gutter? I don’t think so.
NOTE: This is the PG version. The ad is being promoted without the bleeps.
UPDATE: It has been pointed out that these are actors, probably paid, probably in heavy make up and probably following a script. That could surely be so. But it still gives me the heebie jeebies. tw
