Response to KamaAina (Reply #1)

4. Exactly. This sort of ad is meant to "buy" free publicity for its controversy.

Kind of like LBJ's 'daisy' ad against Goldwater. It only ran once, and everything after that was free PR thanks to the news media (which was a lot tougher to manipulate than the corporate trained lap poodles in today's media markets).
