I get this is South Dakota, but WTF?
Knowledge is ignorance. War is peace. Corndogs and jägermeister is the new grey poupon.
Whats up with the corndogging. Is that some sort of insinuation that Varilek has the gay? Or is it all they could dig up on his extravagant no expenses spared internationel jetsetting lifestyle?
I'd think being able to put back a triple double would be expected of ANY of your politicians out there.
Is corndogging where you go out to british parks at night and trade delicious batter dipped wieners with strangers?
Matt Varilek has the knowledge and political experience necessary to lead South Dakota into the future. A good cartoon advertisement.
Not sure if you're being funny or serious... if serious, I believe it's holing not dogging (holeing?)
(The internet is a dark and dangerous place where you can pick up all kinds of scarry factoids)
I refuse to correct you.
Exactly my take away - if they're trying to discredit the guy, they're doing an awful job. He's sounds way more experienced and suited for the job.
Forget it, D&D. It's South Dakota.
That's some quality voiceover on that ad. I'm not being sarcastic, the change in intonation when talking about each candidate is superb; bright, easy and fun with her, dark, moody and lecturing with him.
I.....uh....So maybe.....ummmm.....It could be.....
JESUS CHRIST, SOUTH DAKOTA. For fuck's sake. Let's set aside your bizarre obsession with corn dogs and Jagermeister as some sort of symbol of excess. Whatever. It sounds like the menu at the Broke Phi Broke frat party to me, but I'm not from you, so maybe there's some sort of weird feud between soybean farmers and corn growers and so the only patriotic way you'll ever endorse for eating a hot dog is in the form of Japa. I mean, you're wrong - possibly the worst thing that you said about that man was how many corn dogs he inhaled, because that's a clear sign that he has little to no taste when it comes to the consumption of tubed meat products - but maybe that's just some local thing. The commercial you wanted to make - which I can clearly perceive here - is not the thing that you shat out. The commercial you wanted to make focused on the fact that Whassisface the College Boy spent most of the past twenty years either overseas or in Washington, promoting a proposition that Democrats are broadly for and Republicans are broadly against, and now he just showed back up in the state four years ago and he expects you to Hilary Clinton him into office. The commercial that you made had a voiceover guy from a Call of Duty ripoff giving me a mission briefing on how many advanced degrees and how much policy experience this mother fucker has while Sally Soybean over there took twenty years to be recognized as a leader by a bunch of people who yank edamame for a living. Local branch. THAT'S NOT A GOOD WAY TO MAKE THAT POINT, DUDE. I understand and accept that the Republican Party today is basically a clubhouse for dudes who failed out of metal shop in high school because they were too busy getting their girlfriends pregnant behind the vocational building to show up for the final. You're anti-intellectual and you market it. I don't agree with it, but I can at least respect you for honesty. But for chrissakes, must your impetus against knowing how things actually work (I eagerly await the candidate who asserts that pi is exactly three 'cause Jesus and the inevitable comparisons to Time Cube Guy that will result) extend all the way to pure incompetence at doing your fucking jobs? It's awful if you can't figure out the volume of a cone with a book and the answer both in front of you, but the very notion that somebody was paid for that thing to happen on me, which you just specifically said you did, is goddamn contemptible.
When even I cannot bring myself to construct any sort of apology for you, that's your indication that you have officially graduated to The Worst. So, congratulations, I guess. Now I'm going to go eat a hot dog. Assuming that I can thaw the buns.
Here's my thoughts as we go.
A minute in, still having a hard time understanding the ad. The intonation from the guy makes it apparent that this is supposed to be supporting her, but the listing of honors just tells me that she once won a Farming award and has experience working on a farm while he's earned a BS and Masters and has worked multiple jobs internationally. So in any normal understanding of the facts this would be pro-him.
Minute and a half. This guy has an impressive resume under his belt. She I guess never has left South Dakota and has experience as a mother and has restaurant experience I guess.
Two minutes. Holy shit, that's the dirt they have on him? That he eats corn dogs and drinks jagermeister? I think the World of Warcraft ads made more sense than this.
And done. I think I trust the Corn Dog guy. If her common sense is anything like the common sense that on display with making that ad, then do not want.
If I were going to make a parody of a political attack ad, I'd make this one, only I'd make it a lot more amusingly obvious so that even South Dakotan Republicans would know it was a parody. I'm not 100% sure this one isn't a parody, albeit a rather poor attempt at it.
Kristi Noem, if that is her real name, sure has purty hair, though.
Just checking, but this isn't like a Colbert Report fake funny ad or something, right?
I don't think so. I first came across it when someone posted this link on their FB:
Gee, farmer mom hick chick, or smart party dude.....I can't decide.
Yes I can, that Matt dude sounds like fun to party with.
But yeah, the voice over is awesome.
"MATT VARILEK DONE GOT SCHOOLED IN SOCIALIST EUROPE!"
Brian Seiler, your rants are delicious.
So this ad convinced me to vote for Matt Varilek. I mean, shit, not only is he far more educated, he MAKES JAGERBOMBS.
So um..I'm not American, is South Dakota like crazyville or something?
Apparently, because that lady won by a large percentage.
I'm tempted to link a photo of a bunch of dudes stopping to pose while taking a break from shoveling a stack of dead Sioux into a pit, but Lum might disapprove.
Have this picture instead:
Manifest Destiny is the worst.
Man, Wyoming was worth a lot back in the day.
Check how much land was up for grabs in South Dakota.
Yeah, things got ugly a century ago, I imagine some of the manifest destiny mindset still lingers.
It's depressing that somebody could win with the message "Vote for Kristi Noem, she's never been anywhere or learned anything, and she hates fun."
