Notable Ads: Ted Cruz

I'm with the 99 members of the Senate who can't stand Ted Cruz, but I have to give him some evil-genius props for this shot-for-shot remake of the famous Office Space scene:

This is a very terrible ad -- and should result in extensive condemnation of Cruz. How totally inappropriate for the process of electing a president of the United States.
 
The Cruz people are super sharp.

I saw a CPSAN interview with Ann Telnaes and Signe Wilkinson in which the latter called this counter cartoon one of the most remarkably clever responses (in kind) ever by a political campaign:

The Cruz campaign is much more entertaining in my view than the Trump reality show.
 
Yeah, I watched that ad with my mouth open in wonder, horror, laughing, chastising myself for laughing, until the last frame ("Lies. Corruption. Clinton"). Ruined the tone. Evil-genius is right!
 
I imagined that the computer represented a threat to me or anyone unlike me, like Isis, and that she was a Republican. She would certainly be admired and would be challenging in the Republican polls among republican voters.

It is a creative beauty. Women are unfairly not supposed to show their frustration or anger. Hillary's moments when she shows her anger will be shown over and over as a weakness. Anger on the faces of Cruz, Trump, etc. show firm resolve and strength.
