Earlier, we pointed out a particularly eye-catching anti-Obama mailing, which depicts Obama as a steely-eyed train conductor (although technically it should be an engineer, right?) running down a little girl on the tracks.
Now, here’s another piece of photo manipulation from the other side. This mailing from the League of Conservation Voters depicts George Allen, the Republican candidate for Senate, as the happy-go-lucky Gilligan of “Gilligan’s Island.”
Flip it over, and the message is about . . . the economy. “George Allen: Shipwrecking our economy, deserting American workers,” it reads.
Then, in smaller type, it riffs on the old TV theme song:
“Just sit right back and you’ll hear the tale
A tale of some fateful votes
George Allen cast to ship our jobs
On some overseas-bound boats.”
What all this has to do with conservation, we’re not sure.
