Has anyone seen the commercials from Exxon Mobile re: education reform?

I've been pissing around for the last hour or so to try and make a comment about their silly and expensive PR campaign to try and convince us they actually care about the quality of education.
Try and set up an account to see if you can let them know how you feel about their PR blitz. I don't watch much TV but it may be telling I saw the ads on MSNBC.
I'll be watching my junk mail account to see if my account is accepted.

1. I saw the ads too...

on Rachel Maddow, and I would have been shocked that she would have allowed them to denigrate her brand, if they hadn't been preceded for weeks by that non stop barrage of the "engineer"/actor with the smirk on his face proclaiming the virtues of destroying our environment while at the same time making the oil barons even more wealthy - all for the benefit of creating a few low paying jobs. How could she do that? Is there nothing left for me to believe in?

I liked it better when all they used to do to try and warp people's minds was to show pictures of themselves kissing babies.

And I just can't get over it that Rachel Maddow allowed them to associate her name with their lies.

2. Oh yeah. 25th in math, right?

So, what are corporations going to do about it? Last time I checked, they were all against paying tax money to support the commons, like education.
