126. Making Subliminal Messages Itself is Wrong.
Its one thing to do it like the Mister Subliminal jokes from Saturday Night Live several years ago. But what he did is still wrong. Imagine us a making a Pro Kerry campaign commercial two years ago and finding out later that there was a pro Repub frame or two in it. Everybody here would be frothing at the mouth over it.

That they dont work is one thing. But because there easily fooled people in everywhere (including here, including freepers) somebody will believe he was trying mind control.

If a story comes out that we want subliminal messages sent everywhere in order to win the next election, there will be massive backlash. That most people will more or less scoff and use that famous scene in Star Wars to mock it (These are not the Droids you are looking for.), enough people would become enraged at us. The Rove scandal would be over shadowed very easily.

That it wont really work isnt the point. Too many people believe it does.
