Sarah Palin Declares War On Pacific Ocean

MoveOn.org has always been known as being a little “out there,” but with their latest video really does take things to a whole new level. I’m pretty sure the ad was intended for humor, but “House” star Olivia Wilde just doesn’t convey sarcasm or humor very well.  Essentially, the point one could take away from this is that if you don’t vote non-Republican this election, then the whole world is going to crap. Cats will be put in charge of financial reform, Sarah Palin will go to war with the Pacific Ocean, and then the Republicans all turn out to be Skynet or something like that.

Point is, the tone of this ad just runs me the wrong way.  Fear tactics should never be used to convince somebody of anything, and that’s exactly what MoveOn is trying to use here. It’s completely exagurated of course, but even the most exagurated of tales have been told to ward humanity away from nuclear war.

At least we know the intents of politicians when they try to scare the crap out of us in the hopes that they will protect us from their demon-seed of an opponent. Here, MoveOn seems to be blurring the lines of what is real and what is fantasy, trying to pass off fantasy as relaity, so don’t buy any of it.

But let’s face it, Sarah Palin declaring war on the pacific ocean. That’s pretty funny.

Here’s the said Ad:
