American political advertising
Sarcasm as political propaganda - that's my kind of politics. I am quite taken with this Democratic Party agitvideo, and the site that contains it, which uses actors to play stereotypical Republicans. I was most taken with the guy who said that he was quite happy with "cheap plastic crap from China".
OK, at 3.30 minutes it is a bit on the long side and the joke does tend to wear off before the end. That said, I like the production overall, and am left wondering when fun like this will arrive in the UK?
