Remember When Move On Used To Do Good Spots?

I don't get it. Move On has tons of cash. All the most creative people are Democrats (so they say). So how come produces commercials that are just one step up from Honest John's Used Cars "Push, Pull or Drag" Sale?


Here's their latest lame-o effort. Cheap set, bad acting and typography that makes Gutenberg sorry he invented movable type.

Mike Capuano: A Day Late And Several Dollars Short

In this spot, Mike Capuano attacks the policies of George Bush and Dick Cheney. Remember them? Mike Capuano uses a six month old argument in an ad that may have cost as much as ten dollars to produce.

Here's somebody who is hoping US Senate seats go on sale this Christmas.

It's Political Primary Season: Hide Your Babies!

There are hands to be shaken and babies to be kissed (not the other way around, please). Political primary season is heating up earlier than ever before. His Republican Senate hopeful Tom Foley talking about babies.

One question, why is there a super reading "30 Years Experience" jammed in the middle of a commercial about the national debt. I'm guessing someone wanted to cram in another message point, but it just made my brain jump out of gear.

Andy McKenna says, "It's Me Versus The Hair"

How do run against the idea of Blago? You take on the hair. Andy McKenna does just that in his opening salvo in the Illinois Governor race. The b-roll shots of politicians on the streets wearing Blago hair is straight up genius.

Paterson Poll Numbers Must Be Extra Stinky

Here's another nicely produced bio ad for Paterson that sets him up as a guy who worked hard to excel despite his disability. Everything's going along fine until they drop a bomb that says, "And sometimes you make mistakes."

In other words the poll said, "he seems like a nice guy, but he screwed this whole thing up, big time." Ruh-roh, Reorge.

David Paterson Channels Teddy Roosevelt

Here's David Paterson doing his best impression of a populist politician in this very nicely produced re-election spot. He'll probably get shellacked, but this is a nice spot. Well done.
