RNC ad fail

Is it just me, or is this about the most tin-eared ad in the history of video production?

Script: “Would you get on a plane with a pilot who has never flown?”

Me: You betcha—long before I would get on a plane with a pilot who lost a total of four planes.

I understand they’re speaking metaphorically, but god-DAMN, what an unfortunate choice of images. The script goes on to ask rhetorically if you’d trust your children with someone who had never cared for children, go under with a surgeon who has never operated and—tada!—trust your country to a man who has “never been in charge of anything.”

That’s pretty fucking rich coming from the RNC, which foisted the metaphorical Michael Jackson of child care and the Dr. Kevorkian of health care on us in 2000 and 2004. That’s pretty goddamned cheeky from the party that gave us the catastrophically incompetent half-wit who has been in charge for the past eight years.

You effing tell ‘em, Betty! When are you going to be on the Rachel Maddow Show, btw? : )

Speaking of planes and running the world, let’s just hire some <a href = “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCJLoie5EGg”> roadies</a>, like in the Nextel ads.

Hmmm… wonder why that tag didn’t work. Anyway, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCJLoie5EGg to check out the ad. It’s great.

I love you.

How would you like your heart surgeon to have graduated fifth from the bottom of his class? And have lost four patients before working on you? And to have not learned from his mistakes?

Experience means nothing if you don’t learn from it. Experience means NOTHING if you don’t learn from it. EXPERIENCE MEANS NOTHING IF YOU DON’T LEARN FROM IT.

Excuse the shouting. I’m going to have a drink now. Great post, Betty.
