Very cool site

The American Museum of the Moving Image’s new online “The Living Room Candidate: Presidential Campaign Commercials” is a very cool site that uses streaming media to show television commercials from the presidential elections dating back to 1952. The lineup includes Lyndon Johnson’s famous “Peace Little Girl” ad and George Bush’s (the current President) subliminal “RATS” spot. Great stuff no matter what side of the aisle you’re on.

And, if real-life commerciasl aren’t your thing, then check out this spoof that’s been gaining noteriety.
