Phony ads ineffective


It’s almost laughable to read about the National Public Radio representatives’ remarks having been edited to frame it in a misleading light. No kidding. People are not all lemmings. They have eyes and ears and know instantly that any ad used by either party is rigged to “strengthen” their point of view.

I have to say that the NPR smear piece was very poorly done. The reality-altering bunch are usually better than that.

Thankfully, the great majority of voters don’t take their cues from Rush, Rachel, Glenn and Keith. They know when something is phony and, if anything, they are offended enough by the amateurish efforts that they will deliver their vote in the opposite direction just to protest the garbage.

One more reason for us to have representation by lottery, just like jury duty. When someone seeks a position, it’s to serve all right: self-service, every time.
