Insanely crude...

Anti-Alito video. (Via WaPo.) That video interfered with the rationality channel of my brain! What was the part where a guy had a chicken bone sticking out from his armless shoulder and a dog was jumping to bite at it? What case was that about?

Yep, "insanely crude" describes it pretty well. It's actually rather funny, with that music and the ridiculous images and all.

Of course, if that's the best the anti-Alito camp can do, then he looks even more like a shoo-in.

Why even bother making that video? Did the people who made it think it would convince anyone to be on their side?

Bwaahaha!!! That was so bad it was good!

1) What do these people have against animals - a bunny-headed machine gun maniac and a spying terrier OB-GYN?

2) I love the logo with the vicious boot of Rethuglican tryanny and SS lightning bolts trampling out the American Dream.

Sorry - tyranny. I misplaced Karl's VRWC spelling guide.

They should've hired JibJab to do their video.

Who is their target demographic?

The website, Stop Alito's America, has been featured for the past week on Michael Moore's site. I'm sure this comes as shocking news to everyone.

I agree with Pastor Jeff. It was so over the top it got funny. And Freeman's right: why would anyone who's wavering accept the assurances of folks who are obviously being completely unfair? Well, there is a sort of "South Park" humor here, where maybe you could see that it's exaggerated -- nothing hidden about that -- but you could still get a feeling that all the cool kids know your supposed to hate this guy.

Yes, South Park. That's exactly the target demographic -- the SP fanatics in the 18-24 range (i.e., my students).

FWIW, I liked the black-and-white logo...
