What were they thinking?
When we reported Monday that the pro-abortion group Emily's List was launching a campaign targeting (ahem!) Sarah Palin and her Mama Grizzlies, we expected a lot of hate and a lot of lies from their effort. But no way we could have predicted what a ridiculously stupid ad these leftists would cobble together.
Ed Morrissey debunks the lies in the Emily Listers' campaign here. But now for the really surrealistic part...
A method of getting an internet ad a lot of views is to make it so strange people just view it for the WTF factor.Tammy Bruce chimes in:
Is that what Emily's List is doing here?
If so, they've failed; this makes them look stupid (and... physically unattractive), but it's too cutesy and contrived for anyone to care about.
So here's their big Palin-Hate ad, featuring... Ewoks, which really isn't how liberal women ought to be selling themselves.
Silly costumes sort of remind people that these women have to play dress up to be Mama Grizzlies, doesn't it?
If Sarah Palin's so dumb and silly, why is it you who are dressed up in the bear costumes?
Ewokie’s List finally came out with their ‘attack’ on Sarah Palin. And let me just say, it’s a very sad day for Mama Ewoks. Or for people who dress up in bear suits. Is this what liberals did when they went to the, er, Coffee Parties that were so fabulously successful at energizing liberals to counter the Tea Party? Yeah, well, it gets hot in those Ewok suits!KingShamus points out the obvious -- how the femi-leftists beclowned themselves with their pathetic ad:
Did EMILY’s List think Sarah Palin was taking her metaphor of the ‘Mamma Grizzly’ literally?And Brian Faughnan has the exit question:
I guess it’s up to me to point out that Mrs. Palin never donned a cheap bear costume, put some black-out paint around her eyes and delivered a speech about the maternal instincts of conservative women.
The only people who look like amateur hour clowns are the gals that EMILY’s list roped into starring in this goofy exercise.
Isn’t it a little demeaning to portray professional women in these ridiculous costumes?Well, yeah. What struck us is the contrast between SarahPAC's beautifully done Mama Grizzly ad and the embarrassingly childish ad that Ewok's... er, Emily's List shot poor Emily in the foot with.
