Who watches this nonsense. You couldn't pay me to watch a political ad.

by Anonymousreply 107/31/2020

I support the Lincoln Project, but this is their lamest ad yet :(

by Anonymousreply 207/31/2020

That a Trumpster like R2 hate it makes me think they're on to something.

If I had millions of dollars, I'd buy air time on Faux News and have this ad run every 15 minutes during prime time. The pleasure of watching Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Jeanine Piro, Laura Ingraham, and Trumps heads explode would be worth every damn penny.

R1, you might be "above" politics ads, but there many who aren't. So get out of the way.

As for R2, you sound pretty lame yourself.

*political ads

by Anonymousreply 507/31/2020

R4. What the fuck are you talking about. Political ads are for the gullibles who seems to be impressed by meaningless visuals.

by Anonymousreply 607/31/2020

What the fuck are YOU talking about, R6? Why do you think candidates on both sides have spent millions with every election cycle on political ads? And if you think political ads don't matter or work, I suggest you look up the name "Willy Horton," you fool.

by Anonymousreply 707/31/2020

No, this is directed solely at Trump, not his followers. This ad targets his vanity. If he ever sees it, he will start foaming at the mouth.

by Anonymousreply 807/31/2020

This one misses the mark.

by Anonymousreply 907/31/2020

How so, R9?

by Anonymousreply 1007/31/2020

The Lincoln Project has done better work then this, just because someone says so doesn't make them a Trumpster. Such intolerance about an ad produced by republicans who will turn on Joe Biden the minute he's elected. I appreciate the work the Lincoln Project has done, but don't trust them as far as I can spit

by Anonymousreply 1107/31/2020

That's hardly the immediate point, R11. Still no argument supplied as to why this ad doesn't work. They're not all supposed to take the same approach, you realize?

by Anonymousreply 1207/31/2020

R7. You result to name calling which shows there are simpletons like you who are easily swayed by political ads. I should become a political so I can con gullible people like you. Political ads are nothing more than wasted money.

by Anonymousreply 1307/31/2020

I think the ad is hysterical and is a direct kick to tRump's tiny balls.

by Anonymousreply 1407/31/2020

"I should become a political so I can con gullible people like you."

Oh, dear--who's a simpleton, R13?

We're talking about people an be swayed by ads, darling.

Willie Horton was used by Republicans in the 1988 presidential campaign in political ads and it proved very detrimental to the campaign of Democrat Michael Dukakis--proof that political ads can have a very potent effect.

Here--educate yourself.

"Still no argument supplied as to why this ad doesn't work"

I think the sarcasm will be lost on the target audience. The play on the Latin is cute, but if the watcher doesn't get it, it's wasted. The Lincoln Project has done some brilliant work, this one just isn't my favorite. Get over it

by Anonymousreply 1607/31/2020

It’s not as lame as the scripted ‘coma’ melodrama one.

by Anonymousreply 1707/31/2020

R16, what you say is a matter of opinion--yours. The ads are targeted for certain demographics, I would also imagine. Not all demographics are the same.

by Anonymousreply 1807/31/2020

Agreed R11, they Lincoln Project people want to return to the time when the GOP were closet racists, stealing everything and ruining middle class America quietly under the guise of programs like trickle-down economics. They hate Trump and Trumpism because it takes what they really are and shoves it forward into the light for all to see- and turns it up to 11. They continue to put forth this false "Party of Lincoln" narrative to make the flyoverstan plebs that vote for them feel honorable for doing so. The GOP hasn't been the party of Lincoln for a century- Lincoln was liberal. Project Lincoln WILLINGLY played their part and helped get Trump and his enablers elected in 2016 because they thought that they could profit. They never realized how exposed their game would be and how it would jeopardize everything. VOTE THEM ALL OUT.

by Anonymousreply 1907/31/2020

There were people on the Lincoln Project--maybe all the founding members--who were dead set against Trump from the start of the 2016 campaign.

The current enemy of my enemy is my friend. Until at least November. Who else is running ads like these?

by Anonymousreply 2007/31/2020

I love the Lincoln Project but agree this is not their best work. Something about the British-accented, Wild Kingdom-esque narration is just too dorky. It'll probably bug the shit out of Trump, nonetheless, and I'm sure the LP has more great work to come.

[quote] They continue to put forth this false "Party of Lincoln" narrative to make the flyoverstan plebs that vote for them feel honorable for doing so.

If it works to get them to vote AGAINST Trump in November, I'm all for it. Doesn't mean we need to crawl in bed with George Conway et al forever.

R19 gets it

by Anonymousreply 2307/31/2020

There’s Boris at R1.

by Anonymousreply 2407/31/2020

Well, let's appease R11 and R19 and let the Democrats put their non-existent message skills to work. Let's see how that works out for everybody, especially since the Democrats haven't had an on point messaging system since ever!!!

by Anonymousreply 2507/31/2020

The ads are great R20, but their goal isn't altruistic. Project Lincoln wants their party back, but the GOP and American Conservatism has been bad for Middle Class America for the 37 years I've been alive and probably a lot longer. The party ideology is a lie, and PL should not be enabled to reform another party based around American Conservatism and start over running their sham bullshit. If Trump loses it will be because of Coronavirus and it's impact on the country, not because of PL internet ads- great though they are. I believe nothing else would have defeated him otherwise because Biden is not a strong candidate and the despite the "Radical Liberal" horseshit coming from the Radical Right, the Democratic party is mostly moderate.

R15. I have no time for some random nonsense you copied and pasted from Wikipedia.

by Anonymousreply 2707/31/2020

I think it’s funny, and I bet Melania does too.

by Anonymousreply 2807/31/2020

R27 doesn't want to read that her idiot belief that political ads have no effect was an imbecilic statement, easily proven wrong by my reference to Willie Horton. R27 prefers to be a moron.

Btw, the facts of the Willie Horton ads aren't limited to Wikipedia, you silly cunt.

by Anonymousreply 2907/31/2020

This is a great ad for the people it is aimed at;.

It is not aimed at elderly liberal homosexuals with a passion for Golden Girls and Broadway musicals.

by Anonymousreply 3007/31/2020

Who is the ad aimed at, R30?

by Anonymousreply 3107/31/2020

I like the ad, after all you've got ad copy that correctly calls him a "narcississtic sociopath" who "eats souls". As a guy who's written a few small town political ads, I'd say the Lincoln Project is giving a master class that political advertising wonks will be influenced by for many years.

by Anonymousreply 3207/31/2020

@r25, what I hear you saying is that without the help of disgruntled republicans the democrats don't have a prayer. That's bullshit, there are other groups like Meidas Touch who are doing excellent work who aren't butthurt republicans. One more time for those who easily get their undies in a bunch, I appreciate the work the Lincoln Project is doing, most of their ads are creative and spot on. This is not one of the better ones. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it

by Anonymousreply 3308/01/2020

The ad is mostly aimed at Trump R31 -- they run it in places he'll see it and he's reacted to previous ads of theirs.

The secondary target are on the fence Republicans who are looking for support in their decision to abandon Trump. TLP says "you an still be a good Republican and vote for Biden"

The tertiary target is people who hate Trump and love seeing him mocked and will likely share the add on social media.

by Anonymousreply 3408/01/2020

R31. Ask the right question which is who are easily swayed by this ad. No one new since the people who like those ads were never going to vote for trump and then you have the never trumpsters. So those ads are speaking to those who already hate trump and never voted for him in 2016. Basically preaching to the choir and no one else.

by Anonymousreply 3508/01/2020

R29. You think resulting to name calling makes you tough buttboy.

by Anonymousreply 3608/01/2020

Stupid R36 returns! I was wrong to call you a cunt. You're a gash. How's that, fuckhead?

R35, I asked the right question, because I was responding to where the ad "was aimed." As for the target--it's Dump. It's meant to infuriate him. That's enough.

by Anonymousreply 3708/01/2020

I thought it was funny. But then I’ve watched a ton of nature shows so it appeals to me in that sense. I haven’t seen all their ads but anyone attacking Dump right now is fine by me.
