Coulter: “The Willie Horton ad was the greatest campaign commercial in political history”

Ann Coulter–Bush’s Finest 30 Seconds: The Willie Horton Ad.

Breitbart:

The press in America is even worse than we imagine. We sense that they’re biased and stunningly incompetent. They are those things, but so much more. Our media’s version of the news is mathematically and precisely the opposite of the truth.

The death and burial of George H.W. Bush is only the latest example.

In the puffery and revisionism that accompany funerals, the man who gave us David Souter, an unnecessary war, tax hikes he promised not to impose and the Americans With Disabilities Act (aka The Destruction of Small Libraries Throughout New England Act) has been elevated to saintlike status.

But the one incident the media decided to excoriate Bush for was, in fact, his finest moment: the Willie Horton ad.

If we let the media get away with this, they will have once again redefined what constitutes acceptable discourse in America and cemented the notion that our political process should never be soiled by such a campaign ad — the one thing Bush got right in his entire public career.

Far from representing the “low road,” the Willie Horton ad was the greatest campaign commercial in political history. The ad was the reason we have political campaigns: It clearly and forcefully highlighted the two presidential candidates’ diametrically opposed views on an issue of vital national importance.

Bush’s opponent, Gov. Michael Dukakis of Massachusetts, had championed a self-evidently insane criminal justice program that provided prison furloughs to first-degree murderers.  read more

  1. I think my favorite was Dukakis in a tank with an over-sized helmet and a goofy-assed look on his face.
    That and John Kerry in a clean-room suit crawling through an air tunnel, once again with a goofy-assed look on his face.
    Priceless! 🙂

  2. That guy introduced Globalism in the form of the NWO. It seems to be a common theme with the Bushies. I’ll celebrate his military career. That’s it.

  3. Lee Atwater singlehandedly got Bush elected and when he died at age 40, Bush did not even attend his funeral.

    One thing about the Bushes, it is always about the Bushes. First, last and always. You must be balls in a vice loyal to them but they can throw you under the bus like tossing a shrimp cocktail to a starving dog under the table.

    They think the Republican Party is their property and birthright.

  4. I played a gig at a Dukakis campaign speech back then. It took a while to get paid.
    It might be a while before I pay taxes on it. 🙂

  5. Who can be so stupid as to forcefully proclaim “Read my lips. No new taxes,” then pass new taxes?
    George W Bush.
    The very very epitome of someone that surpasses the Peter Principle. That is, he was generally not very competent but he kept getting promoted anyway. All the way to the presidency.

    Charlie: Today, the networks would NEVER have run that clip, and YouTube would ban it as “hateful”.
