His Words, Our Faces

If you happen not to live in one of the seven selected swing states this is now running in, here's a chance to watch the ad which many are arguing is the most devastating of the campaign. In so saying, by the way, I can't help but wonder if they have already forgotten this extraordinary ad from just a couple months ago? Whoever is doing Obama's tee vee spots has grasped in a frankly unprecedented way the rhetorical force of acoustics to set and materialize and drive home a scene and a message, this time accentuating the tinkle of high-pitched silverware against the fifty thousand dollar plates in the fundraiser at which Romney made his now notorious remarks, now contrasted with the absolute deathly silence of the faces of Americans who have to work for a living and who are being insulted and disregarded and threatened by Romney's words. Masterly.

I would love to know who is in charge of messaging. It's about as well done as I think it could be.

Even the usually super annoying emails from Joe Biden are great this year.

This is exactly what I'd like to be doing professionally by the next Presidential election.

Don't tell me you are rethinking your promotion of jam jar techno-immortalization. I have been pining to link to the website.

Shit. I guess I didn't take my responsibility as an entrepreneur and job creator seriously enough.

And here I thought you were a thought leader.
