When politics and music video collide

From CNN earlier in the week – Jeanne Moos presents her very own Super Tuesday Political Video Awards.

A good summary of some of the hottest and some of the most cringe inducing items on the download circuit. What will be our NZ equivalent?

Meantime fresh controversy is set to rage with the news that the girl who starred in the viral video touting Sen. Barack Obama didn’t vote for her man according to another report from CNN’s Jeanne Moos.

    I liked the link to panadagon that Stephen Judd put on In a strange landCan we keep the sunroof on the glass ceiling open?

    It was about the right’s habit of denigrating women candidates in the US. But then moved onto discussing tee-shirt sales by the right there.

    By the way, the CUNT website has the ubiquitous modeling pose that appears on 99.5% of right wing websites hawking T-shirts—skinny white woman with big boobs, wearing a tight T-shirt (maybe a big of belly skin) and otherwise sporting clothes that make you flinch because they are so tacky. It’s embarrassingly transparent. But then again, so are a lot of right wing artifacts, like the Confederate flag.

    Incidentally the post on In a strange land How to lose some critical votes. It was about WhaleOil and his fetish habit of using Photoshop.

    Oh I missed my origional point. Most of those super tuesday ads were pretty low even by US election advertising standards.

    But it looks to me like it is an video tactic derived from the tee-shirt marketing.
