I'm voting Republican because I think new drugs should be made available immediately, whether they've been tested properly or not. If the major pharmaceutical companies' bottom lines are healthy, I feel healthy too.
Bloggers have certainly gotten the joke. Ramon de Vries says:
If I could vote in the US of A, I would vote Republican just because of this inspirational video.
My suggestion to all our fellow voting Americans: think about this video for the next 5 months and make a Change by voting Republican ;)
From France, Livejournal user, mooglosaurus agrees:
I wish I could vote in the USA!!
If I could vote, I would vote republican, just like my favourite Fairy Godmother! Thanks T!
Australian blogger Duncan (Duncan's Propaganda Blog), who has been following U.S. political advertisements closely, had this to say about the video:
Iâ€™m Voting Republican is a satirical look at the likely outcome of another four years of Republican government, put out by SyntheticHuman, a collective of film directors in Phoenix, Arizona. The clip features 28 actors talking, tongue in cheek, about their reasons for keeping the Republicans in government.
The not-so-subtle message behind the film is the importance of a united bloc of citizens willing to take the time and effort to vote Democrat in order to improve Americaâ€™s domestic and foreign policy.
Matthew Moore, writing for a Telegraph.co.uk blog, is impressed:
“I'm voting Republican because…
…… I just don't feel like I deserve health insurance.” Killer line from the latest US election video that confirms once again that the Democrats have all the best virals.
