Now that their last publicity stunt was shot down, MoveOn moves on, offering a commercial entitled "Debate." It offers a preview of the upcoming Bush-Kerry debate, where cardboard cutouts of the blood rivals morph into who they really represent. (MoveOn has not heard about morphing being a bit outdated.)
As can be seen from the outtake above, Bush represents the interests of three corporate types, whereas humble, man-o-the-soil Kerry represents the interests of normal, everyday Americans like you and me.
The fact that all three corporate types are white guys of varying ages and the Kerryites are a white actor trying to portray a white blue-collar worker, a white female, and a young black male (disabled with his inhaler to boot) is just a coincidence. I'm sure in some markets MoveOn will be airing commercials where all or even some of the bad guys are Of Color. Stay tuned, those commercials will be available any day now.
