First rule of propaganda

First rule of sales, too: know your target.

The Obama team seems to be selling its product over and over again to hip young urbanites. Guys — you win! We concede that demographic! Good luck getting ’em to turn out on election day.

Now you need to go for a chunk of the rest of the electorate.

Strategically, there were so many things wrong with Obama’s so-called Still ad, which pokes fun at McCain for being too old and out of it to use email — even before it turned out John McCain actually lubim some email, but is too damaged from years of torture to type it himself.

As of today, the ad is still up. Which poses the brain hurty question: is it deliberate? Is this Team O’s concept of how you play political hardball?

Wow. When did the Stupid Party get so lucky, and the Evil Party get so stupid?

Take this picture, now. It’s an outtake from a cover shoot for the Atlantic (to think that magazine once published Mark Twain, back in the day when rumors of his demise were etctera). Not really an outtake, it’s the one the photographer wanted to use.

After getting that shot, Greenberg asked McCain to “please come over here” for one more set-up before the 15-minute shoot was over. There, she had a beauty dish with a modeling light set up. “That’s what he thought he was being lit by,” Greenberg says. “But that wasn’t firing.”

What was firing was a strobe positioned below him, which cast the horror movie shadows across his face and on the wall right behind him. “He had no idea he was being lit from below,” Greenberg says. And his handlers didn’t seem to notice it either. “I guess they’re not very sophisticated,” she adds.

That, or they don’t give a shit. Look, sweetie, we aren’t confused about which party is running a scarred-up crusty old bastard and which nominated an attractive, innocent young puppy. Your job is much, much harder. You have to convince us that this crazy-evil angry old sonofabitch isn’t exactly the sort of thing we like in a president.

And remember: this is America we’re talking, not one of those pussy Yoorpian countries.


More on Jill Greenberg, the photographer who took that shot, from the American Digest. We’re classmates! (Well, not really — she went to RISD a decade after I did). In addition to taking a stealth gotcha! shot of McCain, she had some Photoshop Phun of her own with the outtakes. That goes beyond grossly unprofessional and flirts with actionable breach of contract. Here’s hoping you starve, Jill!

Update: Ace has a thread going on this. Someone in the comments, with the euphonious moniker Boobenfloppinschtoppin reminds us that Jill Greenberg is the photographer who caused controversy a couple of years ago for this:

So what is Jill Greenberg doing? She is taking babies, toddlers under three years old, stripping them of their clothes and then provoking them to various states of emotional distress, anger, rage etc. — so that she can then take photos of them this way to “illustrate her personal beliefs.”

Remember that? I sure do. The photographer/blogger quoted above, by the way, got the full liberal treatment for his pains: lies, smears, threats and calls to his boss. I revise and extend: Jill, here’s hoping you die in a fire!

UPUPDATE: by popular demand — aww, I’m just shitting you. Nobody demanded this, I just wanted to hear it again. I think I got ’em all: the complete cast of proposed male action characters from MST3K’s Space Mutiny:

Perhaps. But even people who agree with her politics are wary of working with people who don’t observe their contractual obligations. I’d be willing to bet those photos weren’t hers to vandalize.

Space Mutiny, I think that was from. Sadly, it’s not one on my hard drive, which means it’s packed away.

Yes, Uncle B shot me that headline. And yes, I’m still planning to move — assuming we don’t have a total economic meltdown. I still have to sell a house in the States first.

For the record, all that bad Muslim shit is going on in London and points North. Where we are, South of London, the ethnic makeup (and pretty much everything else) is exactly the way that royal nutter Henry VIII left it. None dare call it “white flight” — but that’s basically what’s happening.

Not that it isn’t very, very bad mojo to move to a country where that sort of thing is going on.

But HOLY SHIT! What the HELL is wrong with you people in the UK? Holy SHIT. As soon as you start sanctioning wife-beating, the battle has been more than lost. No excuse.

Difference between libs and conservatives?

Conservatives hope that someone starves or perishes horribly. (which is ok, it’s a free country – and here’s to Greenberg’s demise for even thinking of hurting little kids)

The way they’re looking at it in law (best I can make out from reading up) is that this is like contract arbitrarion: the two sides agree to put their case before a third party arbitrator, whose decision then becomes legally binding. In other words, it’s not without precedent, which doesn’t mean it can’t totally suck.

Uncle B is fuming about it, and I imagine a lot of people are. The Labour Party is already in crisis, and this won’t help. Problem is, the opposition isn’t very. David Cameron, the Tory leader, is a bubble-headed creep. I don’t see him doing anything to piss of the Muslim community, either.

That’s the problem: when one separatist identity group gets a big enough voting bloc, nobody wants to piss them off. <cough>MEXICANS<cough>

Sadly, the immigrant population of the UK isn’t illegal. It’s *very* hard to vanish into the UK illegally. Because they’re mostly entirely legal, and often citizens, there’s bugger all that can be done.

I like kebabs, though. Everybody’s immigrant population makes great food. It’s why lefties love them: they think lots of different kinds of great food and beautiful textiles is what multiculturalism means.

Poutine (Quebec French pronunciation putsɪn is a dish consisting of French fries topped with fresh cheese curds, covered with brown gravy and sometimes additional ingredients. [1] The freshness of the curds is important as it makes them soft in the warm fries, without completely melting. It is a quintessential Canadian comfort food, especially, yet not exclusively among Québécois and Maritime Acadian Canadians.

Gibby’s absolutely right about the cause. As to how it happened, it came about because a Left wing government sneaked it through, in effect, as part of an executive order. Indeed, it turns out few had any idea it had been done!

The fawning over Islam by the British political elite is creating huge resentment. How far away we are from pitchforks and brands, I’ve no way of knowing, but I do know there is a widening, yawning chasm between the ordinary people and the political classes.

The real problem is that we have let so many of the bastards into the country and, so far, the only people with the guts to say ‘throw them out’ are extremely unsavoury nutcases.

Erm. Just so’s y’all know, I didn’t mean every person in the UK bought into that weird kind of multiculturalism. No disrespect intended to the pitchfork carrying masses. Unintentionally I get carried away with sweeping statements.

You’re exactly right, Weas. The text message thing was also an excellent example of how he’s trying to appeal to the youth vote. He doesn’t seem to have figured out that a) he had the youth vote locked up anyway and b) the youths, uh, don’t vote. Except me, and I ain’t votin’ fer no Marxist, no way, nohow.

I mean, announcing the veep by text message wasn’t a bad idea. It was creative and different, and fit with his campaign. The problem is that only the youths think, “rawk! txt msg is teh kewl!” Normal people don’t care. (And it didn’t help that Biden totally doesn’t fit with the “new and different/change” theme.)

I’m starting to think that Obama really is kind of a dim bulb.

Well, if that curd stuff on those fries up yonder, tastes like sour cream, then I am all over it.

(no idea if I got Asskissmetted or dumped by the innernet the first time through – if it is a dual-post, sorry)

Enas’ “Thro b McRipn smash” gets my top vote closely followed by apotheosis’ “Billet Thunderfi st”. Uncle B’s “Thor As sthunder” just cracks a smile, it does.

(spaces to throw off As skissmet – wink wink)

Did anyone throw out Jawbone McCurdstomper?

Cheese curds must remain a one-man show for me. Anything else would just be unhealthy.

I’m not surprised at what she did with John McCain, but the baby thing really had me hot.

What a fucking bitch to do that to little babies. I’d like to punch the mom’s in the mouths that let her do this to them.

It’s not ok to me that they do this in the movies either. I never understood why a mom would let their kid be in one of those horror movies, it’s disgusting that they’d do anything for fame.

Pajama momma,

Once a parent starts viewing offspring as revenue, what other use do they have?

Evil will always hide when it can.

Stage moms and dads are better agents and accountants than role models.

Kids don’t cost money. They make money, especially the white ones.

pajama momma – “howdy” and “you got that right, sister”.

highpockets – children as revenue – you are right, that’s an evil slippery slope. I’ve told Cruel Wife that even if offered huge obscene gobs of money, our daughter will never be in that kind of situation. How can it not be hard on the kids?

Which stinkpad did you get, Jill?

I luv my Stinkpad, even though it is currently dead. Not its fault. It’s got a bum hard disk and all my Windows disks and stuff are packed away.

Uncle B has one of the beautiful, slick new Stinkpads, but he says bad words to his a lot.

It’s a T42 – recycled (free), but new to me and it go zoom.

My PC currently has little X’s where its eyes should be, so I put it in the hands of the Motherboard Whisperer.

Mine’s a T42. It was one of their most popular models ever. Bought mine on eBay for under $500 and decided if I got a year out of it, it would repay me. I got two years, and I could get it back up again if I had the write repair discs to hand.

Nice machines, them T42s.

I went barking mad and bought a Z61m. As her Ladyship suggests, it’s not a hit down the sett.

BTW, the system just ate this when I tried to send it. Comments database is looking flakey again… 🙁

Hmph. Nothing I can do from here.

The database has just been repaired, though. Surely it doesn’t need cleaning up every week.

They don’t have discs. We use all ghost images here. Sorry.

Thanks, Jill. I have the discs, but they’re packed. I opened a few boxes labeled “computer” but I was in real danger of undoing things I don’t want undid.

Sorry, Dave. I speak fluent gibberish and I sometimes slip and drop it into ordinary conversation.

I went to Retarded School, you know.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
