3 AM Sleeper for Obama

posted by on March 8 at 12:16 PM

Too funny.

One of the little kids in that Hillary ad lives in Bonney Lake, is going to be 18 by the general election, and was a precinct captain… for Obama.

Via TPM and KONG 6/16.

Politics as usual - what kind of person would take a job for one candidate when supporting another? Have they no scrupples?

McG, I hope you were kidding with that absurd comment. If not, did you fall and hit your head? Another asshat Dem. Go McCain!

Yeah, and she was quite surprised to see herself in the Clintonator's ad, too.

The only possible explanation: Mark Penn and a bottle of chloroform.

Try watching the video. She's in the ad because she shot some stock footage eight years ago, owned by Getty Images, which Clinton purchased.

Hey guys, new rule: If you haven't read the article or watched the video, DON'T COMMENT ON IT.

Girl is not too smart - should have insisted the footage be shot with ten of her friends all cheering for the OBAMA - far more interesting that sleepy mom and dad, cozy and affluent white suburbia stuff

Oh well, the young will learn .... maybe

It is a political campaign not a VFW essay contest

Think she'll get her wish of making an Obama ad? That'd be pretty awesome:

[fade in to girl talking]

Casey: "Hillary Clinton released an advertisement showing stock footage..."

[shows clip, continue V/O]

"...of a girl sleeping in bed, tinted it blue and used a gravelly voice to scare you. That was me, eight years ago."

[in comes Barack]

"Well I'm here to tell you I'm not scared. Before I even saw the ad, I was a precinct captain on Barack's campaign."

Barack: "Let's put an end to politics that use scare tactics to drum up votes, or to justify aggression."

Casey: "And he won't rely on scary stock footage for votes - but people. Like you and me. I'm Casey Knowles..."

Barack: "...and I'm Barack Obama..."

Both: "...and we approve this message."
