Republican Congressional candidate Mark Oxner's new ad will certainly have people talking. Set aboard a "ship of fools," the ad almost seems as if it could have been directed by the macabre Tim Burton, offering an eccentric mix of just about everything -- from a Cialis reference to a cameo by the famed "Anonymous" masked-figure, from a jab at Obamacare to a dig at the "99 percent."
On this Alice in Wonderland-esque vessel, rafts full of enslaved children row-away as Captain Barack Obama of the "U.S.S. Obamaboat" recklessly steers the ship toward the edge of a waterfall, and, certain doom.
It comes as no surprise then, when Oxner closes the ad by asking voters to "turn this ship around" before it is too late.
Conservatives will likely cheer Oxner for his astute observations the creative way in which his ad paints the current president and his liberal policies as a subjugator of those who embrace the Constitution and freedom. Liberals, on the other hand, may mock the ad's unconventionality and thus dismiss it as ridiculous. Either way, the spot delivers on what was likely its desired effect: To make people take notice!
