The lighter side

This has nothing to do with Kansas politics. However, this could be one of the best or funniest campaign ads ever, depending on your point of view. It’s worth sharing.



One thought on “The lighter side

  1. Yes, the ad is humorous because it is so utterly over the top and an incredible sell-out to so many conservative ‘conventions.’

    But there’s also a more interesting side that was explored today on Salon.com, which you can read here: http://bit.ly/dxWex

    Basically, the article argues that while conservatives often accuse liberal east coasters of condescending toward conservative middle America, it is actually conservative politicians who condescend toward middle America by treating their own voters like they’re stupid.

    It’s easy to see why Dale Peterson would have a low view of his own voters if he believes they’re so easily influenced by incredibly blatant symbolic imagery.

    As if I’m going to vote for you because you have a gun – because sporting a gun and cowboy hat has SO much to do with carrying out the office you seek. Please.
