Howdy. We've moved from Cayce, but St. Elizabeth of South Rose Hill or Lizette de Waccamaw de Sud just don't do it for me.

Campaign ads are Hard, Caucusing is Easy

From a link at Drudge, comes this ad designed to get Hillary supporters out to the Iowa Caucuses. Nice use of self-deprecation, esp Bill & the Cheeseburger, and Hill singing the National Anthem.

The version I found, here, has annoying teensey ads that show up on-screen during viewing, but they can be easily closed.

From Breibart TV:

It opens with Clinton huffing on a treadmill envisioning a double cheeseburger. Can you say typecasting?

The point? "Exercising is hard," an announcer intones.

Cut to former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack and his wife Christy, both Clinton backers, doing the twist. Again the announcer: "Dancing is hard."

Cut to Hillary Rodham Clinton's now famous off-key rendition of the "The Star-Spangled Banner." Cue the announcer: "Singing is hard."

"Caucusing is easy."

Two teens appear on screen to explain that any one of voting age by next year's general election can caucus. Others explain the simplicity of it all: Remember the date, find the proper precinct site, arrive on time, assemble in one corner and count off.

Caucusing, they all say, is easy.

Cut back to Bill Clinton. Not to give it away, but he proves that exercising is indeed hard.

Note the appeals to key Iowa/Democrat constituencies.
