From a bumper sticker I saw the other day, summing up the Bush-supporter’s (confirmed by other bumper sticker) priorities.
Well, it’s nice that firearms are more important than bravery. I guess if you have them, you don’t really need bravery, huh?
Eh, that’s neither here nor there.
The thread’s about revamped Democratic tactics. I know, I know - done to death.
I’d love to see the Democratic party in the US push slightly more Libertarian, and at the same time, cut the feet out from under the Moral Majority.
So, first - lay off guns. Really. You have no chance in hell of banning guns in this country in the next fifty years, barring a true epidemic of child-on-child gun violence. So don’t worry about it. Cast off that baggage and concentrate on your more important priorities.
Now the big one. God. The big ‘G’. Yahweh. King of Kings.
Tough nut to crack. But how about… this.
[Setting : a Church. A minister is performing a Baptism - filling the basin; he’s also consulting a book]
MINISTER : There it is. Exactly 5 liters. [ He closes the book, and we see the GOP logo, or perhaps 'Secretary of Religion’s Handbook on Baptism ] We have to use the exact amount, of course.
[Fade to Black]
VOICEOVER : Keep government out of religious matters. Separate church and state. PReserve your first amendment rights. Vote democrat.
Annnnd, scene. I’m sure you get the idea. Plus, I threw in the 'liters" because the sort of dimbulbs this commercial might sway probably hate and fear the metric system. Nice touch, eh?
Dialogue could use work, though…
