Think About Good Stuff

Remember the Soylent Green scene in which Edward G. Robinson watches soothing video clips of sunsets, mountain streams, and frolicking animals in the last moments of his life at the state-run euthanasia center? This advertisement immediately reminded me of that.

It's also right before Charlton Heston discovers that Soylent Green is people.

What kind of political genius though that relating their candidate to a setting sun was a positive message about the future?

I guess in Connecticut it could be the sun rise, but it certainly isn't clear.

Heh. Joe Lieberman seems to be trying for a sort of Dubious Achievement Award for counterproductive campaign commercials this year: he's already posted a big entry in his "cartoon bear" ad in the primary that had the main effects of bewildering the viewers, and focusing attention on Ned Lamont - now the "sunset" ad? Maybe the Joe Party ought to forego traditional media and stick to campaigning over the Internet. Oh, wait.....

It's the inability of Gen X to question anything that's leading us to this form of mind control. Oh, how I miss the "question authority" mindset of the 60s.

I believe it is the baby boomer generation that has made a mess of things and will continue our path to complete economic ruin. Gen X is too small to have any political power and we are too busy honing our tax evasion skills to worry about questioning authority! We may not be politcally active but we aren't dumb. We recognize the writing on the wall. Especially since the GAO is kind enough to spell it out so plainly.
