Video clip of the day

Kathleen Parker likes this:

Fred Davis of Strategic Perceptions and who also graced us with the bizarro Demon Sheep ad serves up this play on Reagan's "Morning in America" ad from 1984.

Our Frank Luntz tingle-meter maxes out at "the government is taking away choices we used to make" but then nose-dives towards the end with the whole "caring" government thing. Thought we had discarded compassionate conservatism to the sorry, sorry ash heap of history. Guess Davis felt compelled to offer up at least one thing soft and cuddly in this otherwise grim ad.

All in all, though - we're with Parker on this one.
