This political ad for Judge David Miller is just......awful. The voice over is about as bad as we have ever heard. The sound is bad, the music doesn't fit and the message is obtuse. Yes, we know Judge Miller has the reputation of agreeing to set hearings at unusual hours, but really, most voters will not care about that. Plus, the pull away shot shows him reading, out loud, to .....no one. Which is sort of weird. Most of have learned to read silently without moving our lips since we were about 8 or so. The penultimate shot of Miller with his wife and dog is a good one, but that's about it for this amateurish ad.
By contrast, this commercial by Tanya Brinkley is much better. The music is similar which leads us to believe they may have both used the same company to create the commercial, but it is a bit softer. The images that are projected are more compelling and interesting and there is an underlying message of Ms. Brinkley out in the community dealing with people. The voice over is much better and the only complaint here is that the two very close close ups of Ms. Brinkley don't really work. We would have pulled back a bit on both. But over all the commercial works much better.
We're not endorsing or "not endorsing" anyone here. We're merely drawing upon our vast knowledge, accumulated many years ago, of election advertising.
July was THE hottest month EVER recorded in the United States, since 1895 when records were first kept. But as Mitt Romney and most republicans will tell you, that proves nothing when it comes to global warming. Indeed Romney was over heard saying "why don't they just turn up the AC in their Escalade or vacation home if they're hot?"
See you in court. Keep cool.
