When in doubt about the best way to fearmonger, seek an adorable little girl. That, at least, is the message from two Republican ads, released on the same day, featuring the same young actress.
In the RNC ad, the adorable little girl innocently watches reports of China's supremacy at the close of Barack Obama's term.
The ad made by Iowa conservative group American Future Fund goes Blade Runner on us. In the dystopic scenario, a blond woman warns citizens, including same Adorable Little Girl, that America's creditors have induced "economic slavery."
The tradition goes all the way back to Lyndon Johnson's infamous "Daisy" ad with a little girl picking at a daisy followed by a nuclear explosion and the ominous warning that the "stakes are too high."
Of the ad, Knowles said, "What I don't like about the ad is [that] it's fear-mongering. I think it's a cheap hit to take."
