jm, this ad, and the others, are equal- if not superior- to any of the professionally produced ads I have seen so far. You might consider a standalone post of all the ads together, and petitioning the moderators to make them "float" or "stick" at the top of the activism sidebar, so everyone can find them easily.

Could this be done if jm gets all the ads together?

For someone who's not going to tune in until just before the election, they may wounder what the narrator in the add is talking about... needs to include the Dems angry antics to really have an effect... maybe even compared to the calm and mature sounding President, VP and Powell... that'll really make them look ugly.

If the official Bush and Republican ads just had a bit of your edge and get to the point idea, GW would win big.

Dick Armey just spoke here in Milwaukee and said the party leadership was weak and had too many "bedwetters."

Do the 'right click and save as' to you desktop and then after it's there, click on that file.

Or try again later. When it has a lot of folks hitting it at once, it probably doesn't work.

Sorry for the trouble.

This ad needs to go out to everyone you know (especially "independents").

Send the link or send the ad (it's pretty compressed).

Sorry I was playing with the kids today.

From John Kerry and the International Socialist Party:

An adept student of propaganda once wrote, "The art of propaganda lies in understanding the emotional ideas of the great masses and finding through a psychologically correct form, the way to the attention and [then] to the heart of the broad masses." In other words, the art of propaganda is to transform politics from a reasoned debate of issues among intellectuals into an emotionally driven stupor of the masses. He then went on to write, "The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, [and] their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan. As soon as you sacrifice this slogan and try to be many-sided, the effect will piddle away, for the crowd can neither digest nor retain the material offered. In this way the result is weakened and in the end entirely cancelled out." Propaganda short-circuits reasoned debate by building a consensus outside of the political process, which can then apply significant external pressure to anyone standing in the way of the message.


The Democrats, through the press, use this technique of propaganda to avoid the reasoned debate. What do they stand for other than hatred of George W. Bush? This ad cuts to the heart of the Democrat plan.

I really like the ad. But, can I make one suggestion? I would love to hear Dean doing his scream at the end of the ad. That would be an effective reminder of the Dems' idea of debate.

I disagree. I think the Dean scream was (is) overused. It gets played on the radio still ten times a day. I would rather have Kerry yelling "None of your business" or do they have one with him calling that SS agent an SOB?

I agree with the primary message of the ad, which is that Democrats play people for saps. Unfortunately, I disagree with the final conclusion--a great many people know full well what policies the Democrats are pushing for and think they sound like good ideas.

Perhaps what's needed is to produce some 'fables' or stories, whose characters would not be explicitly identified but whose identities people should be able to infer. Write the stories in such a way that any liberals who find themselves offended have only themselves to blame for identifying with the evil characters. [E.g. when an ad accused "greedy mayors and corrupt politicians" of suing the gun industry, Mayor Daley squawked at being called greedy and corrupt--but why would he think the ad was talking about him?]

One fable I'd start with would be the story of a farmer who is accused by the townspeople of keeping a larger portion of each year's grain crop than anyone else. Never mind that he worked to produce the crop, or that he needs the grain to plant next year's crop. Allowing the farmer to keep too much of his crop is clearly detrimental to the townspeople.

Another story--though harder to tell in a suitable format--would be a story in which some nasty people plot in a back room to engage rent-a-mobs against businesses that don't pay them proper tribute. Of course, Hollywood does similar stories all the time with Republicans as bad guys; Republicans need to strike back.

Somehow, a lot of liberals need to be woken up the fact that they're being played for saps, and used by greedy people to extort money from those that needed, so the greedy people can pocket most of the money themselves. Not sure how best to do that, but if the facts can gain a foothold there could be a very rapid sea change in short order.

Good ad, good good good. Can you get the text to stand out more against the background? I'd go with Arial or another sans-serif font, as the lines are cleaner and fatter, maybe drop-shadow the text and have the images at 80 percent transparency over black background. Excellent effort, though - much appreciated.

You know, the Bush campaign should earmark a nice chunk of their warchest for funding these grassroots-generated ads in local cable buys. And if I were them, I'd even run them in safe red states, just to foster a national mood.

Also, I'm no good at putting ads together, but you know what would be a GREAT ad? Run clips from the most vile, anti-American spectacles at all of the anti-War (read: anti-Bush) protests over the past few years, as many clips, as many people as you can pack into one minute, just spouting the most hateful and asinine invective you can find, then close the ad with the announcers voice, and white text over black screen, asking: "Are these the people you want running your country?"

Great work, jmstein7!

Don't you just love it when "the other side" claims that truthful statements about Kerry's actual voting record in the Senate -- public record information -- constitute "attack ads." The record demonstrates that Kerry takes both sides of every issue (all the while stealthily advancing his left-progressive, socialist agenda); that he is a frank political opportunist who flip-flops whenever he perceives an advantage to himself.

But hey, that's not Dubya's fault. Why point the finger of blame at him? Doesn't make any sense at all.
