Be unique! Just like us!

NARAL has a couple of interesting new ads out. Jill Stanek described watching them as like being the only non-stoned person in a beatnik coffee house.

As far as I can tell, the message is "Be just like us! Or you'll be one of THEM!"

"One of us! One of us! Gooble-gobble! Gooble-gobble!"

It kind of reminds me of this guy:

Be an original! Join the crowd!

I guess NARAL is figuring that vague works. If "Hope" and "Change" managed to put Harold Saxon in the White House, then "Free" and "Will" and "Power" can put a canula in a uterus and -- more to the point -- money into their coffers.

NARAL's floating graphics and soft, soothing buzzwords left out something, didn't they? I can think of some other pictures they should have had floating around in those ads. They can't talk about what actually happens during an abortion.
