Or the gall of nerve, your choice.
I caught a college basketball game on the Big Ten Network (BTN) last week. I make this note because during a commercial break a Hillary Clinton for president ad ran. I won’t get into the (BTN) demographic choice (I’d guess IOWA!) but I will get into the substance.
The theme was how great Hillary Clinton would be for America’s security – national and international. At first I thought it was a satirical counter-ad and waited for the Donald Trump, Ted Cruz or Carly Fiorina sponsorship message but it was actually sponsored by some kind of pro-Hillary entity. Of course there was no mention of Libya, Russia, Iran, China, terrorism, geopolitical chaos nor any reference to answering phone calls at 3 a.m. But there was plenty of her droning on about how security can be like a big thing sometimes and the implication that no one would work as hard as Hillary to make America safe. Because, well, because she said so… Kind of… Wow! With a message that strong (and rational), who wouldn’t vote for her?????
Over to you, low-information voters.
