Gonzo Political Advertising

Don’t ask me where this came from, but I suddenly had a political ad appear on the small blue television screen within my mind (which usually only shows a test pattern):

A doctor (vaguely resembling Dick Cheney) along with his assistant (vaguely resembling Alberto Gonzales) straps down a voter (insert identity of your choice), then inserts a probe into their skull, which slowly sucks out their brains, until they go from screaming “No! No!” to robotically chanting “John McCain…John McCain” until their head finally collapses like an expired balloon and they say “I feel happy.”

We then see their gray matter spirited away through a series of tubes, pipes, infrastructure, so on, until it comes out of a gas pump and fills up an SUV, which then drives away, revealing a Bush/Cheney ’04 sticker on the bumper.
