THE FIRST AD OF THE 2012 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION ARRIVES THIS MONTH -- FOR GUESS WHO?
We are never going to be rid of this woman:
...over the past few days, about 1,000 people have donated tens of thousands of dollars to Our Country Deserves Better, a political action committee that is planning a pro-Palin advertisement later this month.
"We thought it would be appropriate to have the thank-you ad run around Thanksgiving," said Joe Wiezbicki, the PAC's coordinator. The group expects to shoot on Monday and raise "a couple hundred thousand dollars" to buy airtime nationally.
Our Country Deserves Better, based in Sacramento, was founded during the campaign to draw contrasts between Senator Barack Obama and John McCain, holding a cross-country, 40-stop tour and even running a pro-Palin commercial....
That very straightforward pro-Palin commercial is here -- but I half hope the PAC's new ad is like one of its other efforts, this truly awful "humorous" ad:
Imagine a Palin ad done in this style. Watch Sarah smite a Katie Couric lookalike with the jawbone of a moose ... but a Katie Couric lookalike who doesn't look anything like Katie Couric! After which Palin chases down the editorial board of The New York Times with a snowmobile! (Whoops -- I mean a snow machine.) YEE-HAW! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
