Well then she must have A LOT of appeal, because she isn't a lot of things...

I finally get it. I never could understand why conservatives are falling for W and Palin types... but I get it now.

Backwards logic at it's best.

Does that include guys? I've read other similar comments from guys too. The way men were portrayed in some of those ads wasn't exactly flattering either. It's an ad, it's supposed to generate buzz.

BOSTON GLOBE EDITORIAL
‘Real men’: Dumb beer ads, courageous footballers

February 9, 2010

Misogynistic and overheated even by the usual standards of NFL advertising, many of this year’s Super Bowl ads treated women merely as obstacles to beer and male enjoyment, and pushed a rather obnoxious, shallow notion of what it means to be a “real man.’’ Luckily, two members of the winning New Orleans Saints squad offered much better examples of what family - and manhood - should be about.

Last Tuesday, Saints linebacker Scott Fujita used the Super Bowl’s media day to discuss his support for gay marriage. It’s a firmly pro-family stance, and a courageous one in the machismo-obsessed NFL.

And Saints quarterback Drew Brees, MVP of the game, spent the moments immediately after it holding his 1-year-old son, who wore headphones to protect him from the noise. Millions watched this touching, personal moment, which showed that athletic prowess and tenderness are far from mutually exclusive.

The advertisers at this year’s Super Bowl pushed a version of manhood mostly about drinking, cars, and trying to escape the responsibilities of family life. But two of the on-field participants told very different stories - stories that will resonate long after the last beer commercial has faded from memory.

You like someone who is not intelligent, adaptable, reasonable, studied, thorough, prepared, or accepting?

"Tebow in 2030" or whatever. He's being groomed. It is his destiny.

Prepare to be governed by Tim Tebow someday. Mark it.
not many people are expecting many glorious things out of tim tebow's nfl career.

So back to the topic:

The actual ad was pretty innocous, right guys?

All of you got worked up into a frenzy for nothing it seems.

The ad, actually turned out to be pretty pointless.

My problem was not with the ad, but the message the Tebow's are trying to get across. The message that was articulated through the reference the ad made as well as the stories told in the media in the lead up. The message being that you should ignore doctor's advice on the off chance your child becomes a great college football player.

People wouldn't take kindly to the grim response commercial showing women who died from ignoring the medical advice of their doctors to get abortions, would they?
