I'm not quite sure what to think about this latest attack ad from the NDP.
I suppose I should be grateful that somebody put out a video calling the Cons Lying Liars. I'm sure that somewhere out there, some people who get their news only from YouTube, must be saying "Who knew eh?"
And it certainly was sneaky to put out an attack ad that only quotes some scribblers from the MSM. So the NDP can say we didn't bad mouth the Cons, Andrew Coyne did.
But I gotta say that even for those who can still read, there was a LOT of text in that video. And unless you follow politics closely, you'd have to read the Globe and Mail to get the full context.
And in the internet age who has time to do that eh?
Or the attention span.
But the worst thing about that video, in my humble opinion, was that there was only ONE picture in it...
And although it's one of my absolutely FAVE pictures of Great Ugly Leader, you get no idea of the horror him and his Cons are inflicting on this country and its democracy.
I mean WTF?
Aren't attack videos in this day and age all about using pictures to create a bad IMPRESSION?
Because even this new video from the Heart and Stroke Foundation gives me a better impression of what it's like to live in Harperland...
And it's message is definitely clearer, I think.
Although I hate the ending. Because the Con zombies are definitely NOT going to
And when I think about what those monsters are doing to Canada right now. And how they're spending millions of dollars promoting themselves, with OUR money.
The Conservative government has approved tens of millions of dollars in "economic action plan" ads this year even as it cites fiscal restraint to cut programs such as scientific research and environmental monitoring.
In all, the federal cabinet has already approved more than $64 million in ad spending for 2012-13 — seemingly well on its way to matching the $83.3 million they spent in 2010-11, the last year for which complete numbers are available.
Even as they prepare to cut $60 million from the budget of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
Because OUR lives are nothing compared to Great Butcher Leader's insatiable desire to kill government...
When I think about what they are planning to put into their new Trojan Horse budget, which is going to be even bigger than the last one. And what might happen if the economy goes south, and Stephen Harper decides to crush all opposition to his pipeline dreams, by whatever means necessary.
When I think about what's happening, and how so many Canadians are still sleeping, and nobody seems able to wake them up, and how the portrayal of the Cons hasn't kept up with their crimes against Canada.
When I think of all of the above, I gotta say this eh?
The next time the NDP does an attack ad they should probably drop the pretty in orange stuff, and just hit the Cons where it hurts.
Screw the fancy words, throw the kitchen sink at them. Start framing them now.
Like I always have...
Use video to create an impression. Until it blends with their other vices, and runs down their faces like pig slop.
The lower we can portray them.
The easier we will destroy them...
