Oh Dear: Emily's List Attack On Palin Is Filled With... Ewoks

A method of getting an internet ad a lot of views is to make it so strange people just view it for the WTF factor.

Is that what Emily's List is doing here?

If so, they've failed; this makes them look stupid (and... physically unattractive), but it's too cutesy and contrived for anyone to care about.

So here's their big Palin-Hate ad, featuring... Ewoks, which really isn't how liberal women ought to be selling themselves.

A little too... on the nose, I think.

If you have trouble understanding them, maybe this will help.

Here's a top ten. It's not a really funny one. Half of these are seriously-intended complaints and not jokes at all. But I couldn't come up with ten jokes. So you get like four jokes and six complaints.


Top Ten Problems With Emily List's Ewok Ad

10. Too much boo-hoo, not enough yub-yub

9. Silly costumes sort of remind people that these women have to play dress up to be Mama Grizzlies, doesn't it?

8. One time seeing furries yiffing and scritching in a fur-pile on CSI was plenty for me

7. If Sarah Palin's so dumb and silly, why is it you who are dressed up in the bear costumes?

6. Video confirms age-old stereotypes that liberal women are nothing but half-witted scruffy-looking nerf-herders

5. Ad unlikely to resonate with mothers worried about paying rent and putting food on the table during near-depression when it asserts that what's most important to your average married woman with children in dire financial straits is right of gay dudes to get hitched

4. I can only imagine "what's cookin'" underneath all that latex and wool... I'm thinkin' these women must smell like Brian Dennehy's taint's gym socks

3. There's a reason Yogi Bear was never a guest on Firing Line, you know

2. Ad about female empowerment and advancement seems a little too fixated on make-up and funky hats

...and the number one problem with Emily's List Ewok ad...

1. Wicket just emailed me to say only one was worth "nutting on"
