I suppose there are a lot of things I could be talking about today. I was going to look at all the Scott Brown ads and all the Martha Coakley ads and do my campaign post-mortem that way, but I'm jet lagged and cold, so that plan went out the window. There are a lot of things I could say about the MA Senate race, it's result, and the aftermath, but none of them are particularly germane to this point of this blog, so it's time to move on. Two ads from Kay Bailey Hutchinson who's running for Governor of Texas:
Maybe this is a Texas issue -- meaning maybe it resonates with Texans, it kinda falls flat on my Yankee ears. But the first ad is actually a clever way of presenting the message, flat or not. The sound design is nicely done too, as some of those images are actually stills, but the sounds make you feel the motion of the cars. I like this style of presentation, I'm not really sure what it's called, but it's interesting and gets your attention. You get the point even if you think it's ridiculous.
The second ad is the same message, but it's just more blah, blah, blah. And while I try not to be too partisan on the site, the image at the end with Hutchinson & Cheney, the guy really looks all hunched over and troll like than ever.
