Fear And Loathing: Stacy Goes To Hollywood

16 August 2010 @ 09:48

Yesterday, our intrepid gonzo reporter attended an all-day shoot of political ads for several candidates in California directed by Ladd Ehlinger, Jr., the master of getting little known candidates a lot of attention through his very creative and provocative commercials.

But shoot it in the right direction
Make making it your intention-ooh yeah
Live those dreams

Stacy has filed a report over at The American Spectator on the shoot and on the God-awful state of the GOP in La La Land.  A highlight:

Sunday’s daylong shoot was running slightly behind schedule, as actors and actresses lounged around the studio awaiting their turns in front of the camera for a series of political advertisements. Three members of Ehlinger’s cast are Republican candidates for Congress and, by Labor Day, these videos could be bringing them YouTube fame.

Scheme those schemes
Got to hit me
Hit me
Hit me with those laser beams

Another highlight:

“We’ve lost the brand,” says one Los Angeles-area Republican. “The party in California doesn’t stand for anything anymore.”

Trying to make the Republican Party stand for something except political ineptitude is a perennial goal of California conservatives. However, many complain that not only is the state GOP apparatus decrepit, but that their problems are neglected by the national party leadership, especially in this year’s congressional elections….

As I wrote the other day: ‘the stupidest of The Stupid Party seem to reside in California’.  This should be a year of triumph for the GOP across the country, but, if it is, it will not be thanks to the Republican Establishment.

Oh oh

Over at his own site, Stace has published some photos from the shoot.

Relax don’t do it
When you want to suck to it
Relax don’t do it
When you want to come

New nickname for RSM: Stacy Hollywood.  It has a ring to it.

‘So much for Objective Journalism. Don’t bother to look for it here — not under any byline of mine; or anyone else I can think of. With the possible exception of things like box scores, race results, and stock market tabulations, there is no such thing as Objective Journalism. The phrase itself is a pompous contradiction in terms.’
