*Vote Republican!* snappy Campaign-omercial files:
Mom 'n' Pop businesses? How quaint! The middle class? A thing of the past! Unions? Kooky! We stand for corporate power, corporate war machine, corporate everything! Let's hear it for U.S.of A., Inc.! Why, some corporations are bigger than...entire nations! Hot dog! And lobbyists? Uh oh! Love those yachts, jet planes, and hot tubs! Who could ask for more? Vote Republican: The hog heaven party!
Land-o'-Goshen, just think! With the elimination of the middle class, there's no educated electorate! Which means we can sell ignorant people just about anything! We can sell them 30,000 casualties in Iraq, "enhanced interrogation techniques", and total privatization! We'll call everything an "opportunity", but we know it's really just good old fashioned ignorance. Nobody will suspect a thing! Vote Republican: The party of mass infliction!
