    No lies were told in the making of this ad.

    Did you see the other ones? He sits and stares at a fire for 7 minutes, with some kind of foghorn thing going on.

    This video and all the praise it receives just proves that our country is intellectually bankrupt. Pseudo-wisdom and pseudo-intellect is what people are hungry for. Show them the real thing and they lose their appetite right away.:barf:

    Wish he would have jumped in the water instead:

    Everyone knows that putting two mutually exclusive ideas together in the same thought isn't contradictory or dishonest. It's nuanced.

    Wish the other Dems would go with this style, especially that one that rides a broom.

    Can anyone point to evidence that this is actually Gravel, not just a guy who looks an awful lot like him? The "gravel2008.us" present in the second half looks fairly amateurish.

    Or maybe his campaign chose a strange way to get more name recognition.

    He needs to be committed.

    I'm ashamed to admit he was ever an Alaskan and even more ashamed he ever (self) served in govt.

    He's in a good place where he is now.

    Maybe he's going for a performance art career if the presidential run doesn't work out?

    With the recent sucess of Al Gore's documentary proving once and for all that people will buy into anything, all politicians are jumping on the impressionalist bandwagon. This ad was very Andy Warhol-esque, note the silence in the first portion leaving the viewer begging for an answer to a question that has not yet been asked, similar to the technique used by great orators such as Adolph Hitler and Benito Mussolini. The calm walk down the path, meant to symbolize the journey that we face together, the removal of the rock, a long time symbol of an obstruction to one's goal, and in doing so saving some poor jogger from the pain and humiliation af a stubbed toe. By casting the rock into the water, (a metaphor of the freudian subconcious) proves that we can overcome adversity, but at a price.

    In the second peice we join Mr. Gravel in a quest through a dense wood, a journey if you will, fraught with obstacles, yet retaining nuances of our modern world as symbolized by the train or boat's horn. Fire has been used by the ancient celtic civilization to symbolize a challenge, smoke that will clense, in turn one casts the psycological irons that bind their free spirit into the flames and like the phoenix arise anew from the ashes. It also reminds us of campfires where trust is built and bonds between men are made, perhaps some tasty smores too.

    I encourage everyone to satisfy their inner liberal by making some long winded and complicated reason why something isn't crap. To most these political ads baffle and confuse, maybe even to some they are indeed crap, but I think I have shown what happens when one lacks both sleep and coffee and attempts to polish a terd in the name of fun:D

    and I guess the mods aren't up yet, countdown to OT thread lock

    I just watched Ralph Nader on C-span say this guy and Kuchinich(sp) are the one everyone should listen to. Everthing out of his mouth was anti-corporation crap. Good Grief.

    Is the point that it is terribly boring in Alaska or that he has nothing to say and he is an empty-headed socialist utopian?
