Hillary Clinton = Knight Rider

April 16, 2008

Advertising Age gives Clinton some pointers on her latest ad:

Hillary, you’re in a fight for your political life and you’re going to feature some whiney-sounding people on the street. “Wanh-wanh-wanh, Barack hurt my feelings!” Just as Americans don’t want to be painted as bitter losers, they don’t want to be painted as helpless victims. You should have gone with barely-controlled outrage.

Having read Andrew Sullivan’s above post, it occured to me that a Clinton Administration is like David Hasselhoff and Knight Rider making a come back. No matter how hard you try, no matter who replaces David Hasselhoff, no matter how the network repackages the show, it is still always be a failure in its comeback attempts. Cheesey effects are a not magical potion to get rid of terrible writing and dated causes, nor are Republican-like tactics winning her even enough popularity to ever even run for Toilet Commisioner of New York. Knight Rider 2000 was an embarassment. Do not be Knight Rider, Hillary. Bow out gracefully.
