The Importance Of Design

Alan Keyes is now running a blog ad over at Allah’s blog. (Which at least he’s smart enough to do.) At the same time, it’s the most singularly ugly ad I’ve seen in ages.

And they couldn’t even antialias the text on their graphic.

And it’s a blinking animated GIF…

…that looks like it was done in MS Paint.

Definitely not the sort of thing that inspires confidence in Keyes and his campaign.

  1. Definitely not the sort of thing that inspires confidence in Keyes and his campaign.

    Really? Because I thought it was Keyes’s flip-flop on running for office in non-resident states that didn’t inspire confidence.

    Or his criticism than Barak Obama wasn’t a “real” black person. Or the half-assed “endorsements” from other GOP leaders.

    Come to think of it, there’s like a million things that don’t inspire confidence in Keyes. Glad to add his half-assed blinking GIF ads to the list.

  2. before I moved I tried to follow the Obama story closely, but I’ve lost touch. Do you have links?

    PS. I’m still reading the others.

  3. I haven’t been following that race much, since it’s pretty clear who’s going to win. Obama’s going to pick up the seat no matter what, so there’s not much to analyze, other than watching Alan Keyes crash and burn.

  4. Mark your calendars, because this is the day it finally happened. I agree with Chet.

    Keyes is a certifiable nujob. He’ll lose by at least 30 points.

  5. Alan Keyes is smart, articulate, and had some genuinely principled beliefs. The problem is he holds many positions in which those principles should be for him and not for any policy making body. I think he would be better of as an ambassador for a relatively conservative country (perhaps in Latin America or Sub-Saharan Africa). He’s been ambassador to the UN, and seems to be genuinely respected in the field of international diplomacy. As far as senate or house material, he scares moderate GOP and libertarian types, let alone swing voters and soft dems. His work will never be influential outside farther than centre-right thinktanks.
