I thought it might be interesting to critique political commercials. This one by Thomson set me back a bit as a first exposure. http://rawstory.com/news/2007/Fred_Thompson_responds_to_Michael_Moore_0515.html I would still be willing to vote Republican because I vote for the person and not the party, [and assuming that this was someone radically different from the rest of the R candidates] but IMO this shot from Thompson does not seem Presidential. He should have just ignored Moore and his nonsense. I had absolutely no impression or knowledge of the man before seeing this, but immediately I found that my impression was negative because he chose to jump in the pig slop. This was probably supposed to make him look tough, but already I am left with the impression that he is not big enough for the job.
