Daschle is Evil~!

Wow. This is craptastic.

Who are *any* of these flash cartoons, R or D, supposed to sway? The production values are very low and the amount of information provided is shallow *at best*.

Hopefully very little money is going into these things. Which is how it seems.

Edit: Although, I will admit, Daschle's face at the end is PRICELESS!

All of the quoted "promises" that the cartoon uses were made in May and July of this year.

Now I dont know a HELL of a lot about politics, but isnt 5 months a little too soon to say that he already went back on those promises?

Or did he actually DO something to contradict what he said in May/July?

Also, how responsible was he for raising taxes like the cartoon said at the end?

Yeah, that's the part that got me (besides the 'he promised a budget part' just any budget? A Budget Rental Car?). How can Daschel raise taxes, while at the same time Bush supposedly lowererd taxes??

Those cartoons (no matter what party) are designed to give a laugh to, and maybe fire up, hardcore supporters. I mean, swing voters aren't really the people who check out National Party Commitees webstites.

It is kind of funny, but like ALL political ads on both sides of the isle, it points out facts about someone without giving any context. Like the Bush one and social security.
Just another example of apealing to people unwilling to think for themselves... and find out why THEY want to vote for someone themselves...
But then again, judging by the overall negative tone of the internet... these cartoons are pretty warm and fuzzy!

I can't say that if I was a hardcore Republican that this would "fire me up". Can you? If this is supposed to excite the base then they must be easily excitable.

Pull a laugh out of me, sure. But if I was in the GOP I would prefer my party use their resources for something other than eliciting chuckles from the foot soldiers; especially so close to a crucial election.

Of course, many here never thought this toon was so harmless... This wasn't a humorous attempt to "fire up" the Dem base at the party's website. No, no. To them it yet another example of shameless and unnecessary Democrat Scare Tactics. "Dems Depict Bush Murdering Senior" is how Drudge referred to it.

Oh, yeah. I don't know if anyone else's heard anything about the Maloney/Johnson race here (two incumbents whose districts got merged), but the ads are getting ridiculous. They've both been hammering at each other for supporting the same exact bill, then the Bush tax cuts work for both of them. Johnson criticized Maloney for not making them permanent, which would've eliminated such things as the marraige penalty. Then Maloney came out with something about how the tax breaks only went to the rich. And this isn't even counting the attack ads about the other candidate using attack ads...

The sad part is that I imagine this isn't much different from other races around the country. -_-

Which part of this is untrue, or even hyperbole?

It's not untrue. It is an hyperbole.

If the intention of this CARTOON was more to say that Bush was a murderer than an opponent of Social Security, then it would not be hyperbole. By foaming at the mouth and saying "Why, why, those evil Democrats are saying that Bush is a MURDERER!" one is either totally missing the point of the cartoon, trying to distract attention from its point, or a total idiot who probably felt terribly sorry for Wile E Coyote.

By that logic, then, the GOP would be trying to tell me here that Bush can fly.

Finally, a simple, graphic demonstration of how much party politics in America suck ass. Everyone from the other party is Eeeeeeee-ville. Like the fru-its of the de-ville. Ugh.

If campaign contributions weren't such an important part of the process, political parties would (and should) be completely outmoded. When someone has the money to run a campaign without help from the DNC or GOP, they do so. They say, I'm so-and-so and this is what I believe and here's what I want to do about it. If only everyone was afforded that opportunity.


Dude.

I thought these cartoons were relatively funny, from both sides. The exploding granny was hilarious. The Bush one wasn't that good, but the evil laughing Dascle at the end of the trick or treat one is DAMN funny.
