Sunday, November 18, 2007 Damned Spot: Pre-Thanksgiving Edition

Video description: "With the Iowa Caucuses just six weeks away, campaign ads are flowing freely. Slate's John Dickerson decodes a fresh bactch of spots."

Note: This one is funny. John Dickerson does a great job at pointing out the cheap tricks that campaigns use in their ads to pull the strings of the viewers. This wonderful commentary really demonstrates that political advertising is no different than commercial advertising. The ads use the same types of elements to create a world within the ad and then they share that world with you, the viewer.
