This campaign ad is doubleplusgood

One of the most famous t.v. commercials in history was the Apple Computer ad that was shown during the Super Bowl in January 1984. You may remember it: the commercial showed a 1984-esque society where a bunch of zombie-like citizens are sitting in a vast room watching a big brother talking head on a screen. Enter an athletic woman carrying a large sledgehammer who runs into the room, twirls around with the hammer, then throws it into the screen image of the talking head. Thus, millions of people were liberated from the conformist tyranny of IBM and were given the (in my opinion) even more screwed up Mac-OS.

I don't support Barack Obama, but a supporter of his has come up with a very clever parody of the famous Apple ad in which Queen Hillary! is simply savaged. If you would like to see more, just click on the embedded YouTube link below:

I will admit that this ad plays into every paranoid - and not so paranoid - fear that I have of Hillary! becoming our next president. And remember, it was not produced by some "evil right-winger"; it was produced by a supporter of a Democrat presidential candidate that is arguably as leftist as Hillary!.

Good Day to You, Sir
