Movies And The Culture Wars: Part 3 The Transition: Oh, God! 1977

This is the 3rd and last of three guest posts I did for Ladd Ehlinger's site back in late 2011.  I'm reprinting them here (With Ladd's permission) because I think the election of Donald Trump is a significant event in the culture wars and these posts (and the follow ups that I intend to write) serve … Continue reading Movies And The Culture Wars: Part 3 The Transition: Oh, God! 1977

DaTechGuy on DaRadio WCRN 10 AM EST Twinkies and Ladd Ehlinger

Today on DaTechGuy on DaRadio we talk Twinkies and with Film Director Ladd Ehlinger about how cultural issues play in the political world. Until we fight on the cultural playground we are going to have a hard time steering the conversation, particularly among the low information voters that gave Obama their win. As always we … Continue reading DaTechGuy on DaRadio WCRN 10 AM EST Twinkies and Ladd Ehlinger

The beginning of the end for the Kimberlin & Co crew

One of the things that I've been suggesting the "Swatter" needs to turn states evidence NOW because the higher ups in Kimberlin & Co will drop him like a wet blanket when the heat gets turned up. Well guess what, somebody is turning on the stoves: Item: Follow the Connections: One of the things that … Continue reading The beginning of the end for the Kimberlin & Co crew

Broken Glass in the Culture Wars

Friar Tuck: I'm sorry my Lord, the maid has sought sanctuary in a consecrated place. Lord Germaine: Nonsense... Friar Tuck: Violation of sanctuary is punishable by Excommunication! Sir William: Excommunication! Lord Germaine: How dare you threaten me! Once again Friar, stand aside. Sir William: Wait Germaine, our very souls may be at state. The Adventures … Continue reading Broken Glass in the Culture Wars

Nothing Against Ladd Ehlinger, Jr.,

...but life might be easier when his crystal ball isn't working well. WCRN (Da TechGuy on Da Radio) listeners may remember that Ladd opined that Occupy Wall Street is all about preparing for 2012: thug tactics, subtle threats to reelect Obama "or else" our cities will be destroyed, etc. Now, Van Jones, Truther and Green … Continue reading Nothing Against Ladd Ehlinger, Jr.,

A few things you might be missing if you are at Blogcon…

...but are significant. Item: Herman Cain not only still leads in the polls but Newt Gingrich has tied Romney Cain is still on top, and more than sixty percent of primary voters are saying the sexual harassment stories aren’t impacting their decision. It looks like the accusations are not having an effect on the polls, … Continue reading A few things you might be missing if you are at Blogcon…

It depends on what TPM means by “thoroughly debunked”

As the hit count of Ladd Ehlinger's viral video on CA-36 manages to rise (on twitter @Webszachandrews tells me it has doubled since my post this morning) without my embedding of it; we see that Talking Points Memo DC apparently has a different definition of "thoroughly debunked" than CBS News: A man who said he … Continue reading It depends on what TPM means by “thoroughly debunked”

New Developments in the Ca-36 YouTube business

I was really taken aback by the speed that the Democrats reacted to Ladd Ehlinger's latest little video. Sign our petition calling on Republican candidate Craig Huey to condemn this offensive and sexist ad, and demand that the ad makers immediately take it down immediately. I'm not sure how effective petition campaigns run by democrats … Continue reading New Developments in the Ca-36 YouTube business

This will certainly get people talking about Ca-36

...I expect however that the MSM will instead of covering the point made in the ad will spend their time asking the GOP candidate to denounce it, as the daily caller pointed out: Hahn’s actual Republican opponent, Craig Huey had absolutely nothing to do with the video because even George Wallace wouldn’t have had anything … Continue reading This will certainly get people talking about Ca-36

Interesting Items in the Weiner story have arisen…

I left the PC to grill some burgers, dogs and pinwheels from Romano's Mkt and here comes a Memeorandum thread on my first post and several new developments: Before we get to them lets say this: there is no evidence that this young lady has done anything wrong. She is a 21-year-old girl and the … Continue reading Interesting Items in the Weiner story have arisen…

Good advice for candidates everywhere

Ladd Ehlinger Jr. explains the rules to candidates everywhere. There are two points of his ten that should be in the front of the mind of any political campaign.: 1. It's a Marketing Campaign, Stupid Just because the common nomenclature is "political campaign," it doesn't change the fact that you are embarking on a short-term … Continue reading Good advice for candidates everywhere

Ladd Ehlinger at CPAC

It was my pleasure to run into Ladd Ehlinger again at CPAC: Ladd without a question made the most memorable and simply fun ads of the last political cycle. Such as: and this: and this: As the next election cycle draws near, if you want to get your name out there, Ladd is the man … Continue reading Ladd Ehlinger at CPAC

Ladd Ellenger nails it in CA-36

Ladd Ehlinger looks at California 36 and sees the chance to rectify a mistake that was made in the last cycle: As I noted previously, Mattie Fein had a good showing against Jane Harman when the elections finally came. Of all the Republican candidates that were destined to lose in California (through Republican malfeasance), Mattie … Continue reading Ladd Ellenger nails it in CA-36
