Power Line Blog held a prize competition for $100,000 for whoever can most effectively and creatively dramatize the significance of the federal debt crisis.  Any creative product was eligible: videos, songs, paintings, screenplays, Power Point presentations, essays, performance art, or anything else
Several entries have gotten a lot of attention and a lot of views or listens.  But unquestionably, the most popular so far is Doorbell.  If you haven’t yet seen it, you may watch it here.

Gag. Retch. Just... awful.

And this is the BEST one of the lot? I wonder how bad the other ones are.

Oh, geez but that is lame. Of course the Power Line creeps like it. "Lame" is their highest aspiration.

Republicans did this to us.

Not democrats, not ever in recorded history. Not FDR, not Truman, not JFK, not even LBJ. Reagan, Bush the Elder, and Bush the Stupid hemorrhaged the debt.

You guys always run up the debt, blame democrats,
and use it as an excuse to screw the poor.

Only idiots fall for this claptrap.

Sadly, there are millions of you.

Well, that's one minute of my life I'm not getting back.

I don't want to waste one min of my life looking at what appears to be the usual rightwing nonsense. Anyone want to give a brief summary just for the record??

It's a 1 minute video wherein the deficit hawks cry the usual crocodile tears about the debt young children will supposedly inherit using a child told by an unseen officious sounding person at the door of a mother holding a young daughter.

Lame. Not much crocodile tears for "our grandchildren" becoming minimum wage serfs by these same vipers.

Thanks, Creosote.

So usual rightwing b.s. about how it's all the dirty LIEbruls fault, needless to say. Of course completely ignoring how conservatives' cutting of the upper 2% taxes is one of the bigger issues for causing their grandchildren to be on the hook for the debt that's been run-up in this nation. That and the fact that at the same time conservatives insisted on cutting taxes for the mega-rich, they also have engaged in numerous WAR, Inc wars of aggression for no reason (of course this is carried on by Obama, who, imo is a Republican masquerading as a "Democrat"), while NOT being willing to PAY for them.

And so on & so forth... lather rinse repeat

Don't I know it fershitz...all very true! My very own curmudgeonly "right wing dad" seems to hate everything and everybody but him and his other RW friends and some family, but suddenly gets all this empathy "for our future children" and gets even more angry when I don't fall for the fake dramatic tugging at my heartstrings, and tell him basically what you just said.

Such phony hypocrites.
