    It is nice to watch two libs tear each other apart

    Of course Hillary cannor fight back - that would be racist

    Obama can't fight back - that would be sexist

    At least that is what libs say about conservatives when they fight back against libs

    But you know behind closed doors that Hil calls him a "fucking ******" and Obama calls her a "fucking dyke". The question is how long before we get a tape of one of them muttering it? :badgrin:

    This ad is a direct lift of an Apple commercial that aired at the 1984 Superbowl. The person that did it, did a great job of putting Hillary into the screen(nodoubt used a MAC with Final Cut Pro) but everything else was from the original ad.


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1984_(television_commercial)

    "1984" is the title of the television commercial that launched the Apple Macintosh personal computer in the United States, in January 1984.
    The commercial aired on January 22, 1984 during a break in the third quarter of Super Bowl XVIII. The ad showed an unnamed heroine (played by Anya Major) wearing red shorts, red running shoes, and a white tank top with a Picasso-style picture of Apple's Macintosh computer, running through an Orwellian world to throw a sledgehammer at a TV image of Big Brother — an implied representation of IBM — played by David Graham[1]. This was followed by an on-screen message and accompanying voice over by actor Edward Grover: "On January 24th, Apple Computer will introduce Macintosh. And you'll see why 1984 won't be like '1984'." At the end, the Apple "rainbow bitten apple" logo is shown on a black background.

    The 60-second film was created by the advertising agency Chiat/Day, with copy written by Steve Hayden and direction by Ridley Scott (who had just finished filming Blade Runner). Creative director Lee Clow was responsible for this and the later Energizer Bunny and Taco Bell chihuahua campaigns.
    The film was shot in London and most of the actors were British skinheads hired for the day at a cost of 125 USD each as the director was unable to find enough actors prepared to shave their heads. The original script had suggested a baseball bat but this was later revised to a sledgehammer. The weight of the hammer made it difficult to cast the part of the runner until Anya Major (a discus thrower) applied.

    Conspiracy Theory: ABC Suggests GOP Behind '1984' Anti-Hillary Ad
    Posted by Mark Finkelstein on March 20, 2007 - 07:49.
    MSM-think: when you have no facts on a controversy, offer up the Democrats' anti-GOP conjecture. That was ABC's modus operandi this morning.

    Being the astute observers of the political scene they are, most NewsBusters readers have surely watched the YouTube-based anti-Hillary campaign ad that has been making the rounds. It is a take-off on the famous Apple computer ad, which in turn was inspired by George Orwell's anti-authoritarian epic "1984." In the current version, an ominous Hillary, appearing on a wide screen to an audience of automatons, represents Big Brother in the same way IBM did in the Apple original. Barack Obama, represented by a woman athlete of a certain age, plays the hero, hurling a hammer into the screen to smash the state and free the prisoners.

    Today's "Good Morning America" ran a segment on the ad. And guess who turned out to be the villian? At the segment's end, ABC's Claire Shipman acknowledged that "there still are no real clues about the author." But that didn't stop Shipman from spinning apparent internecine Dem warfare into a negative for . . . Republicans:

    "Robin, the ultimate conspiracy theory, some Democrats think a Republican operative could be responsible because it not only makes Hillary Clinton look bad but Barack Obama look bad, since it's an attack ad."

    ROBIN ROBERTS: "Something to think about."
    It sure is -- if you want people to think the worst about Republican
