New MoveOn ad from the future: Those wingnuts you elected in 2010 have destroyed everything

posted at 6:48 pm on October 26, 2010 by Allahpundit

Via io9, which notes that MoveOn’s webpage actually lets you personalize this vid with a name and photos if you’re so inclined. Reminds me of “The Dead Zone,” except instead of Christopher Walken trying to prevent nuclear war by assassinating Martin Sheen, we’ve got Olivia Wilde trying to prevent … I don’t know. The GOP merging with a corporation or something. The most interesting thing about this is that it’s played almost entirely for laughs, to the point where you’re left wondering why, precisely, you’re supposed to vote Democrat anyway. Or maybe that’s not the point; if you’re the sort whom this kind of ad would work on, you’re already committed to the left. All you need is a nudge to put on your shoes next Tuesday and walk down to the polling place. This seems like a long way to go for a nudge, but it’s your dime, kids. For the next one, try to get Christina Hendricks. That might actually make me reconsider ObamaCare.

Exit question: Are we sure that Olivia here knows which party is most likely to merge with corporations? Hmmmm.

Projection!

Notice how every time the liberals come up with this crap, it’s they that are the destroyers, and projecting , and blaming others for what they’ve done?

So much for liberals being smarter. Seems to me, their collective IQ’s might reach the IQ of say….a baboon? Lots of arse scratchin goin on.

That was actually pretty funny.

Aquateen Hungerforce on October 26, 2010 at 6:55 PM

Yep, ’cause — after all — all of these horrible things were happening back in 2006 before the Dems jammed themselves into politics. We had terror attacks, and double-digit unemployment, and mass anxiety, and societal breakdown………..oh, wait — no, we didn’t…

cthulhu on October 26, 2010 at 6:55 PM

I thought that ad was pretty awesome. I like the part where Social Security is replaced with a daily inspirational e-mail from John Boehner. Makes you hopeful for the future.

Half way through, I said out loud, ‘this is just gay.’

Whoohoo! President Palin declared war on China in 2017 and had moved so far down the ass-kicking list that she was doing mop-up in Norway by 2020! You go, girl!!!

Especially the writers. There was one episode where House makes a crack about black people being held back politically. He says, there’s a reason why it’s called the White House.

Oh, how funny. And so true.

Think of how embarrassed that writer was just a year later.

Wow, it even starts out with the oh so edgy “underground” schtick breakin’ through to warn teh masses. meh. Btw, i’m sure i’m alone in this, but i just don’t dig the Megan Fox look which Olivia Wilde unfortunately has, too skinny, waxy complexion, they look like mannequins, bleh.

Of course there’s vote fraud going on, tons and tons of it. And it always will, because we never do anything about it. Ever.

Blog posts are written, a couple of GOP spokespeople say “That’s awful,” and then…nothing.

I guess that, on top of everything else, their math skills have gone south too.

I mean, if they are calling from 2057, and “Pres. Palin” declared war on China in 2017, how could they have been at war for more than 50 straight years? (I am going to assume that The Messiah, The One yadda yadda got the US out of Afghanistand next year thus ushering in at least 5 years of peaceful nirvannah).

Didn’t he make sweetheart deals for himself with Goldman Sacs? These liberal twits are pointing fingers at the wrong party. And yes the “Idiocracy” vid on YouTube, it’s Obamaland alright…….
