The New Kilgore Ad

It's getting rave reviews over at Commonwealth Conservative, and for good reason. You can view the ad here.

What's good about it? Unlike that gawd-awful Hillsman product for the Other Candidate, this one is actually funny. It's not a knee-slapper, but it's warm and human and almost feels spontaneous (the last couple of seconds are great). These qualities set it apart from the pack -- and really make me wonder just what Hillsman was doing to earn that massive retainer.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
