Campaign Ads Obama and Romney Wish They Could Run

Posted By on Fri, Sep 7, 2012 at 9:00 AM

Some time over the next 60-plus days, it's more likely than not that you'll see some over-promoted ads that probably won't do much to help either presidential candidate -- they never really do.

But, what would probably up the ante in this year's election is if we eliminated all the "American Dream" riffs, and just -- for once --  didn't give a damn about how politically (in)correct their campaign ads were.

The good folks over at have shown us just how much fun politics could be, if only it weren't for that damn American Dream that's now unobtainable by 99 percent of us.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
