I wonder

…how many of the same people who went into paroxysms of frenzied outrage and wanked themselves stupid over the sight of Janet Jackson’s nip during the Superbowl half-time a few years ago would be perfectly okay with something like this?:

For only three hours a year do Americans actually look forward to watching commercials rather than ignoring them, muting them or running to the bathroom during them, as we do the other 8,763 hours.

That is during the Super Bowl.

In fact, commercials have become part of the entertainment during football’s annual big game, a cultural phenomenon.

So imagine a 30-second Super Bowl ad showing the graphic reality of abortion.

Fetus pron during the Superbowl — just to make those Superbowl snacks a little more appetizing, eh?  Predictably, Nurse Stanek is pretty gung-ho about the idea:

Most Americans, including many pro-lifers, would abhor such an ad.  But pro-life activists like me would be ecstatic, if such a word can be used to describe fulfillment of a passion to see a multitude of people face the truth about abortion….

Such a word can indeed be used, but there are many many more accurate words  at our disposal to describe such mania:  “psychotic” springs instantly to mind.

The plan was hatched by the ubiquitous Randall Terry, whose foetishizing derangement extends beyond all known parameters on the sanity scale.  All he needs is a cool $2.5 to 3 million and, oh yeah, the blessing of whatever network is running the Superbowl…

GOOD LUCK WITH THAT!

    “oh yeah, the blessing of whatever network is running the Superbowl…”

    This is complicated …. it is broadcast by the NFL network .. then sold to a commercial Enterprise … this year it is CBS.

    Sounds like mr. t is looking to have donations pour in. Then, in panel 2, when he tells everyone the bad, nasty tv company won’t run their wondrous advert, he gets to keep whatever monies were given to him.

    It’s a tough life, but someone has to scam it from people. He’s a grifter with his very successful drum to beat. Whatever happened to the theoretical investigation into him and Operation Rescue in conspiracy connection to the murderer of Dr. Tiller?

    I’m shocked that Randall Terry has enough supporters to raise that much money for a Super Bowl ad. That’s a hell of a lot of hateful people.

    eh.

    Nurse Stank says ‘ecstatic’ – JJ says psychotic.

    That’s it in a nutshell.

    Turnabout is fair play, I always say. Here’s how I see an appropriate response ad (preferably at the same Super Bowl):

    *Ad opens with a montage of newspaper clippings, photos and video of every anti-abortion terrorist act since 1977 concluding with Bill O’Reilly’s call for George Tiller to be killed, the subsequent assassination, and Randall Terry’s “reaped what he sowed” quip*

    *And near the end of the montage…*
    VOICEOVER: Thirty-seven years later, Randall Terry and his allies still believe that violence is the best way to end abortion in America.

    For background music, I would get something suitably melancholy… say, Adagio for Strings:

    In case you were wondering, the inspiration for this came from an anti-union ad that ran frequently when I was a student at Carnegie Mellon. It was against a specific union, but for the life of me, I cannot find it on The Great Gazoogle.

    *shrugs*

    Go figure.

    No, this year it WAS on CBS. The next Super Bowl, to be played on Feb. 6, 2011, will be on Fox.

    The network, of course, has the right to refuse advertising on a variety of grounds, including taste.

    CBS did broadcast an anti-choice commercial during the Super Bowl earlier this year, but there’s a huge qualitative difference between an ad with people talking about why they’re anti-choice and graphic imagery.

    They’re the ones who call it murder, after all. Network TV isn’t in the business of broadcasting snuff films.


Wait. What?
