Want the Same Results? Hire the Same Team

OK...I really do try not to get political in this blog, because that's not what most of you come here for.

But as someone whose job entails coordinating PR and marketing campaigns to highlight (or help to create) an artist's desired image, I cannot sit by silently while the political PR machine is used so ludicrously to take the focus off the issues. (Pig in lipstick outrage? Puhleeze. Looks like somebody'd trying to distract the public from thinking about the war, the economy, healthcare, and education.)

Watch this and decide who you want to vote for.

Are these people really who you want in office?

I'm always advising clients, "If you want success, hire a team of people who have helped successful people do what you want to do." That's exactly what McCain did; he's hired some of the very same people from the Bush team to run or advise his campaign. (Karl Rove anyone?) And I'm sure there are more to come if he gets elected.

They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result...

So again I ask, are these people really the people you want in office after the election? Because that's what you'll get if McCain wins the election.

Are you better off than you were 4 years ago? How 'bout almost 8 years ago? What about the economy? Is that better? Are we really safer? What about our ports?

Personally, I say ENOUGH!!!!
