It’s National Ellipsis Day …

April 25, 2011

… or, at least, a friend of mine has declared it so.

My brother-in-law then noted that Google seems not to have heard of National Ellipsis Day.

I’m hoping that by posting this, I’ll fix that problem AND hit the front page of a Google search …

… even if it’s one that no one is really searching.


Geek Factor 10

I wish I’d thought of this … an a capella retelling of “Star Wars” to the tune of various John Williams classics. As someone who embraced my geekdom at an early age, this is an absolute delight!

Not from anything read this time, but really funny yesterday. Said while knitting:

Cast your vote!

For the most vile political ad of 2010!

I have three nominees, here, and I’d love to see what you think (assuming that anyone is still even looking at this blog).

If you’ve seen an ad worse than these three, then I’m sorry. But let me know, and open it up for voting, too.

This stuff makes me glad that I don’t have cable, and don’t get subjected to political ads.

So, without further adieu, here’s Nominee #1, from Kentucky’s Jack Conway vs. Rand Paul race. The ad from Jack Conway 2010 is called “Why?” …

So, there we are … college stupidity, clearly (assuming that it’s true). But does it really mean that he’s some kind of devil-worshiper today? Really?

Nominee #2 is from the group called Latinos for Reform, which is actually a Republican named Robert De Posada. The ad itself has been pulled, but here’s a story about it and an interview with the reprobate. Hat tip to Hysterical Raisins for bringing this candidate to my attention.

Don’t vote? This isn’t trying to engage in the battleground of ideas, this is trying to bypass it. This is actually un-American and anti-democratic.

Nominee #3 is from Colorado, when a pro-life group is depending on hatred of Pres. Obama and fears of money and such to make its point. Hat tip to Joel at The Church of Jesus Christ for that one.

This one pains me, because I probably support the amendment. I’m a fan of personhood endeavors and want to see such amendments passed. But not because Pres. Obama is the angel of death bringing hell behind him and looks like a Batman villain. Because of respect for life. Whoever put this ad together seems to have missed that aspect entirely.

By the way, I’d rather not debate that issue on this blog. Just making a point …

So, there we are. The three most disgusting political ads I know for this year.

Thoughts?
