Barack Obama Gets Rolling Stone Endorsement

9 03 2008
He got Rolling Stone’s endorsement. I can’t help but wonder if it will make a difference in the long run, but it’s still kinda cool.
I can remember reading Hunter S. Thompson when I was a kid and thinking there was a much bigger world out yonder.
How many times do you type the word “yonder?” Yeah, hush.

One of my favorite comments after a playing companion makes a bad golf shot:

“Yer yonder wuz good, but yer tords wuz all messed up!”

It’s about time they got their asses in gear.

Good, solid Liberal endorsement.

I’m not sure about the long term effect either, but I can’t help but think the more exposure the better. I’m going to think positive because I totally heart him.

Is that cover a photo or is it painted?

Either way I think RS should have gone with a different cover. That photo/painting/whatever is kind of unfortunate when it’s supposed to be an endorsement. I immediately just got a bad vibe looking at it & I know who he is, I can only imagine the effect on some not as familiar. Think RS should have done a little more market research on this one (if they did any at all).

Sorry, being a media geek again, I’ll shut up now. 😛

I’m a media geek too, my dear.
It does look like a Superman thing, doesn’t it?

Well, not exactly, my feeling was it makes him look unfriendly, unapproachable, unfeeling, uncaring, and all those other un- words. Even mean. What I would suggest is NOT what you want a presidential candidate to look like, especially if you’re trying to sell him to teenagers, college kids and late 20s/early 30-somethings, a number of whom aren’t paying jacksh*t attention to politics as it is and will vote one way because they like the way this candidate looks more than another one.

That’s my $0.02, which isn’t worth much but holy hoot, I think they could have done a better and more appealing and more magnetizing (was that the word I wanted) cover than that.

You have a good point here.
I like th photos of the candidates that are more approachable. Well said.
