The campaign may be weeks over but the ads for Sarah Palin are about to begin again. A new political action committee has formed and is running the “Thank You Sarah Palin” ad below praising Sarah Palin and thanking her for being her.
The ads are designed with a Thanksgiving theme. It is a must see. It is so awkward and painful that it is a mesmerizing. It is as unsettling and captivating as the “Obama Youth” video.
This ad is so weird that I was a bit skeptical, but it is being reported as true, here. This rather campy production is put on by something called “Our Country Deserves Better” PAC — an organization that apparently does not believe that we deserve better graphics or writing.
I must confess to some irritation when people thank Palin for teaching her son in the military of
the greatest of America and the honor and the valor of serving in the nation’s armed forces.” Are there many parents who do not raise their kids this way? It is the same feeling that I had when John McCain constantly cited the fact that Palin has a disabled child as a type of credential. I was raised that the nobility in such facts was not taking credit for them. The praise for Palin in raising a son who loves this country strongly suggests that this distinguishes her from other parents, particularly liberal parents.
Of course, pundits and comedians also wish to thank Sarah Palin, though they were excluded from the piece. Palin has continued to add to the library of Palin pieces, including the recent Turkey slaughter piece just in time for the holiday.
