And now we go to the Tech tAUk Action Central Headquarters for some breaking news in the war on DEMON SHEEP!!!
Undaunted — actually, it seems, encouraged — by the mockery and attention that greeted their strange attack on Tom Campbell as an evil sheep, Carly Fiorina’s Senate campaign is releasing an 8-minute Hindenburg of an attack on Barbara Boxer, whom the Republican nominee will face in November.
The ad, an over-the-top parody along the lines of attacks on President Barack Obama as a vacuous celebrity and of the Demon Sheep, depicts Boxer as a local figure who went to Washington and became “more and more bitterly partisan while she became shockingly less and less effective.”
Oh. That’s not so bad. Political ads do this kind of thing all the time. But does this have the same kind of viral video chops the Demon Sheep ad does?
“Her elitist self-image grew so that it overwhelmed the Capitol and drifted west,” says the video, depicting ducks swimming in the Potomac as a blimp in the shape of Boxer’s head breaks through the Capitol dome and floats “westward to tell us all how to live our lives.”
Wait, what? Can I see a picture, please?
