  • Unfair but Funny

    Posted by Shannon Love on October 21st, 2004 (All posts by )

    Here is an over-the-top anti-Kerry ad by The Club for Growth.

    I can’t help but think that political ads would benefit enormously by using more humor even it coarsens the debate. I am not even sure humor does coarsens the debate. Humor often conveys the truth better than dry facts.

      There’s a saying that you can’t alienate an already-hostile population. On a coarseness scale from William F. Buckley to Bobcat Goldthwaite this campaign is already tipping the Bobcat Goldthwaite end of the scale.
