Genius citizen video via techPresident and others a gay New Yorker wants to “remind Rudy who he was when he was mayor and to let Republican primary voters have some idea on the man they’re voting for.” Micah Sifry describes it as “deeply subversive,” and one viewing will tell you why, since these guys are really out to horrify Republican primary voters, and they’re not ashamed to ham up stereotyped characters to do it. Take a look:
According to director Ryan Davis’s MySpace blog entry, there’ll be more to come. This one’s been picked up all over the place, so let’s see if it makes some real waves. I’ve long felt that Rudy’s apparent strength in the polls will evaporate once average Republican primary voters look past the tough-guy pose (remember the Onion article about his running for President of 9/11?) and realize that they actually agree with him on very little. The nice thing about this video is that while it definitely has fun with and gains emotional punch through stereotypes, it makes its points with facts.
BTW, looking at the most-recent posts on the site, it’s clear I’ve been writing about the Republicans a lot lately. The Democratic field has really settled down now, and there just hasn’t been much to say since the YouTube debate. Hey Dems, can one of you kids stir things up a bit? C’mon Biden, you REALLY want to take a swing at Gravel, don’t you…just be sure that the video is shot with good lighting and good sound. Finally, congrats to the techPrez team for the award nomination nice work!
