Anyone else find it absurd that Ford has decided to market its big Lincoln SUVs on MSNBC by implying

they will insulate you from the affects of climate change?

I donít normally watch cable, but Iím on vacation and staying at a hotel, and these commercials are ridiculous.

1. Not really--commercials are by their nature irrational, even absurd.

3. Granted, but this doesn't strike you as subliminal propaganda? And why is it on MSNBC?

4. I guess I answered my own question. It's on MSNBC because it's subliminal propaganda.

2. Agree, although haven't seen ad. Can see ads about electric vehicles,

cleaner and efficient engines, etc., but not insulating one from climate change. Of course, if I could afford any car, it would be a small, efficient car, and likely electric with a large range. I love driving small autos, always have.

5. It's strange, Fox "news" has lots of ads for electric cars. Meanwhile the talking heads

continue promoting gas and oil bemoaning the cancelled pipelines and claiming electric cars are an environmental fantasy. It's like they have no idea who or what their advertisers are advertising.

6. I don't get it I think that is a stretch they are advertising the luxury of the car. They had
