Hillary Clinton’s Next Television Ad?

Jay Tea offers “A Free Ad Suggestion For Hillary” which goes something like this:

Play video of Barack Obama saying “I’m the insurgent.”

Play video of news anchor saying something like “Insurgents killed three Americans in Iraq today.”

Sadly, reductio creep will likely kick in before next week’s Texas and Ohio primaries.

  1. SDM says:

    Paraphrased Jay Tea: “I’m not sure that this facile, stupid, intentionally misleading Republican attack will actually hurt Obama. Hillary, will you try it first and see if contempt for voters and the process still plays?”

  2. Jay Tea says:

    Better paraphrased Jay Tea:

    “Obama said something really stupid that will set him up for some very nasty attacks, and he ought to watch how he continues to say nothing in the future.”

    And while I’m sure SDM is pretty darned qualified to paraphrase Jay Tea, I think I’m just a little more in tune with what he intended when I he wrote that piece…

    OK, point taken. But it’s a stupid, bad-faith attack, and it’ll be as stupid and bad-faith if Clinton did it as it would be in November.

    The “ad” is, I believe, a parody of the silly attacks Hillary Clinton is making on Obama. That it’s bad faith is precisely the point.
