"My Mom’s White! And I’m From America!"
I feel like Barack Obama’s new general election ad is a bit unsubtle.
The campaign says they’re running it on a very aggressive 18 state play that includes Alaska, Georgia, Indiana, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, and Virginia. Obama’s fundraising edge should give his campaign the chance to buy plenty of ads in cheap, depopulated, unlikely spots like the MT/ND/AK trio where Democrats don’t normally campaign at all.
UPDATE: Look, I’m not saying it’s a bad idea to release a hilarious unsubtle ad. But if everyone can just take their “meta” hats off for a second, I’m sure they’ll see that this is a hilariously unsubtle ad.
