Word of advice to Clinton: use original footage from now on.

You’ve just got to feel sorry for Hillary Clinton.  She just can’t seem to do anything right in this campaign.  It’s not just her underestimation of the Clinton Rules, under which anything she says or does — no matter how innocent or mundane — is transformed into some conniving attack formed from evil intentions (just look at the false hype over the “dark” ad).  It’s that things like this happen.

One of the actors in the Hillary Clinton ad was shocked to see herself, especially because she’s a fierce supporter of Barack Obama.

The so-called “red-phone ad” was played all over the country and helped turn the tide for Hillary Clinton leading up to her big win in Ohio. The ad shows a sleeping child and asks voters who they would want to see answering a 3 a.m. emergency phone call to the White House.

But the young girl starring in the ad will actually be voting age next month and says she’s no fan of Hillary Clinton.

One of the unintended consequences of using recycled video footage, obviously.  Which is why it’s probably better to use original material.  Time to fire the poor schmuck who failed to consider something like this happening, eh?

I originally saw this posted on the Rude Pundit‘s blog.

  1. take her up on her offer to make a counter ad. As a geezer I am inspired to see young people responding to the seemingly impenetrable grip of the status quo the fake political reality . I feel they are not naive but realize that ‘the fierce urgency of now’ requires us all to roll the dice.

    Cynicism gets us nothing but stuck, and seem to allow the status quo to call change naive. Obama may not be the answer, as no one person is, but at least he takes us one step closer and pulls in those who realize that participation is the only way to change the concept of inevitable. This story was on CNN this weekend so maybe it made it made a dent in the Clinton’s bogus use of fear.
