Bad Campaign Ideas 2010

Campaigning does strange things to people.  For instance, it makes some people think videos like these are a good idea....

This video from CAP's Campus Progress is....well, to paraphrase Douglas Adams: 10 out of 10 for trying something unusual. Minus a few million for execution.



On the other side of the aisle is the recent Mike Weinstein video....which, if you haven't seen it yet, go watch it right now.  And then curse me when you can't get it out of your head for the rest of the day.  They win on choreography, vocal talent and sheer enthusiasm (though, in fairness, it's not hard to out-enthuse zombies).



I can only assume that the new social media tactic in politics is camp. This may actually be an improvement over some of the previous social media tactics (send press releases about yesterday's news!)

Your rating: None


10 of 10


Needs execution.

(I did chuckle, though.)

Got to be careful with camp.

Can't make it too awful. Or can you?

IMHO, the most memorable video from '08 was Hillary In The House:




I Dig It

After browsing thru Jason Mattera's horrendously stupid and condescending freshman-level book at Borders, I am proud of these kids' pretty good flair, imagination, low-budget antics, and coherent message.  If you think these zombie tactics won't connect, think Twilight or Eclipse.

The Weinstein piece is just dumb.  I have no idea what Weinstein has to do with the music, the band, the kids or anything.


Actually, these are not too bad. All I see are hate filled, degrading ads about the candidates opponents. This is why people don't vote. They don't know who is for real.
