OK. Maybe not the newspaper, but one of their columnists, Antonia Zerbisias on her Toronto Star blog quotes from my previous post on the Conservative ads. I doubt the azerbic one and I would have much in common, politically, but the woman can definitely turn a phrase. This had me laughing out loud:
It was a Conservative pitch that, apparently like the party’s entire TV advertising campaign, is structured like a talk show, as produced by the farmers’ collective for community cable in the former Soviet Union.
Certain members of my family might suggest that Ms. Zee speaks from personal experience, but I wouldn’t want to go there. However, she’s right, the ads really are that bad! One only hopes they’re making new ones as I write this.
