A brilliant political advertisement from Michelle Bachman—and I’m not being sarcastic.
Right now, the criticism of Bachman (a very, very, very, very, very, very legitimate criticism) is that she’s a fucking crazy Tea Party nutjob. And, indeed, she is. There is nothing Bachman believes that I believe; probably not a single value we share. She is as far right as right can be—George W. Bush and George Wallace combined. I feel very safe in saying that, were we all living in the 1960s, Bachman would strongly oppose the Civil Rights Bill.
I digress. The ad works because:
A. It’s simple and on point.
B. It’s beautifully shot.
C. It makes this crazy witch sound sane and reasonable.
Hate to admit it, but nice work.
