Serious guy

Here’s the RNC’s response to President Obama’s appearance at UNC-Chapel Hill yesterday.
The idea seems to be that Mitt Romney is serious and the president is not funny (thus the hashtag at the end).
The whole thing falls terribly flat and if it is an attempt to reach young people, well, it sure seems like some old dude dreamed it up.
We expect to quickly see serious ads about why it’s important to stay off of lawns or avoid dancing to that devil music. And if you kids don’t turn down that Walkman you’ll ruin your hearing.

The Gathering Storm comes to NC

Here’s what we have to look forward to in the next year if the move to put the Gay People Can’t Marry amendment on the ballot passes. This is a National Organization for Marriage ad. You may notice that the background resembles what they run on the Weather Channel during a tropical storm update. Suddenly you are very afraid of whatever these people are talking about. It makes me nervous, too. Don’t these folks have somewhere to go in this storm. Shouldn’t they be in the basement or something? Or maybe a closet?

Needless to say, the ad invited a few responses.
