GOP: Fear…It Sure Seems To Be Working

4 Nov

Crazy Train’s next stop: Xenophobialand!

You might’ve seen the story behind this new ad campaign on Time Magazine’s “Swampland” blog today (if you’re not already reading this daily, then consider this your official prompting — great stuff). I saw the ad, entitled “Chinese Professor,” for the first time while in the Nashville, TN, area over the weekend.

Here’s the blurb, followed by the actual ad:

A new and striking TV ad, slated to run on cable networks into next year, is produced by Citizens Against Government Waste. The group has maintained for decades has that deficit spending will ruin our children’s future. That apparently hasn’t done the trick: when a founder of the non-partisan group rolled out an anti-deficit TV campaign in 1986, the nation debt was $2 trillion. It’s now close to $14 trillion. So it’s turbo-charging its argument with sub-titled xenophobia.
