Herman Cain 2012!
One topic I have avoided (for the most part) in Proctor's Type is politics. Just to give a little background, I have been a life-long democrat and have voted in every election since I turned 18. I tend to have a liberal/progressive view on most economic issues as well as a moderate-liberal view on current social issues. So why am I now supporting Herman Cain, a trickle-downing, pro-life even in the case of incest and rape, social program cutting republican? Well, I was fortunate enough to catch this ad and it pretty much says it all...
The only way I can get to just how powerful this advertisement is break down my thoughts by the second:
:02- Wait a second..I thought Herman Cain was black...
:04- Who the hell is Mark Block?
:08- This is the first (but not the last) time Mr. Block appears to be winded...
:14- What is the "chief operating officer of the frenzder mccain"?
:16- It is hard to see but he is doing the politician thumb thing...should be noted
:17- "Tomorrow is one day closer to the White House"...this doesn't make any sense
:24- "I really believe that Herman Cain will put united back in the United States of America"...seriously?
:29- "We've run a campaign like no one has ever seen"..for better or worse this is actually true
:32- "America has never seen a candidate like Herman Cain"- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Keyes
:40- Winded again, politician thumb thing again...this guys not running right?
:41- Producer: "fuck it, cue the music and get this guy a half smoked cigarette, we are going to go a different direction"
:41- Why is he smoking?
:44- This prick is blowing smoke in my face! Is it some type of new campaign strategy to get a potential voter to loathe the chief of staff?
:44- I am still in awe that someone would pay money to air a commercial in which some asshole is smoking and blowing it in the camera in an effort to get you to support his candidate
:45- Oh there he is..
:46- Wow that is a creepy look...
:48- Still creepy...
:49- Producer: "That look is creeping everyone out and we are losing voters by the second!" Do something to make him smile!
:50- Producer (holding a picture of occupier being arrested) "There we go, now he's smiling"
:54- Producer: "Smile is creepier than stare! smile is creepier than stare!!! Shut it off!
:55- Just FYI here are the lyrics of the "song" in the background:
I am America
One voice, united we stand
I am America
One hope to heal our (inaudible)
Deep...I wonder what American Idol 11th placer they got to sing that?
