Clinton Discount

Posted by Katherine | Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

With Obama edging towards a declaration of victory in the wake of the Oregon and Kentucky primaries, it seemed the right time to feature this photo (found by Sue Salinger).

This takes citizen ads to a whole new level. It includes tap dancing, dogs in t-shirts, and dizzying costume changes -- all supported by a very(!) enthusiastic original song (thanks, Sue Salinger): Grace Uncensored is a performer from Springfield, IL.

It's hard to believe it, but they actually exist: electric sconces decorated with pictures of McCain, Obama, and Clinton... and a ...
