The Living Room Candidate. A fascinating archive of presidential campaign commerials. (Yes, I saw in on the Colbert Report, and so did you.)

Is that reason enough to reprise it here, instead of in a blog?

This. Is. Awesome.

I happened to miss the Report when this aired, so thanks Deej.

(Uh, no, it's just polite to have a "via" comment.)

Sort of a double, in that this is an update with the 2004 commercials.

This is very cool. I had never seen the site before. Now I know what I'll be exploring this afternoon. Thanks Deej!

I didn't just see this on the Colbert Report, I felt it there too.

Ha. Yes, blue_beetle, I misspoke. Thanks for clarifying.

If we've already SEEN and FELT it (and I have), why I gotta see it again now?

"Yes, I saw in on the Colbert Report, and so did you."

I'm proud to say I did not! Colbert is a right wing religious fanatic parading about as a left wing comical genius pretending to be a right wing religious fanatic! I for one will not stand for it! I'd rather sit down and type about it! Hmph!

actually I don't pay for cable so I just occasionally catch colbert via yt now and then.

That Jon Stewart's a nogoodnik blowhard corpuscle of verisimilitude as well! To New Jersey with the both of them and a pox on all their houses!

I only go for The Gnooze! the g is silent Because I like my faux news only when it comes outta somebody who'd look good in a bikini! actually she's a very talented, respectable and funny woman and I have no idea how she looks in a bikini, I'm just doing the funny wiff dah objectifying of dah wimenz.
