That Anti-Hillary YouTube Ad

Bravo for the creativity and starting a big discussion. I’ll leave the meta points about What This Means for the web and politics to others. What I’m more curious about is why the Hillary soundbites in the ad are all that bad. Sure, she’s using crafted political language and it’s not especially inspiring, but I wouldn’t consider her rhetoric insidious either. Couldn’t they find Hillary saying something worse?

Here’s the ad, in case you’re the one person who hasn’t seen it yet.

And for comparison, here’s the original Apple commercial that it’s ripping off–note the use of the more scary-sounding guy on the video monitor.
