Borrowing a page from Dean, the Bush/Cheney campaign’s webpage provided a create your own poster link to produce a PDF poster, complete with your own campaign slogan like “Negative 2.6 Mill. Jobs Created and Counting.” Oops. A few weeks after Ana Marie Cox at wonkette.com suggested the idea, the B/C campaign staff caught on and crippled their poster-maker (which I note doesn’t work in Safari at all now), but some of the best posters have now been turned into a Bush/Cheney Sloganator slide show.
Given the trend towards underground resampling and “media consumer reuse,” I expect this to be the watershed year for underground campaign hacks. Anyone seen a re-edited TV ad yet, complete with inserted subtitles and footnotes? Where’s the Phantom Editor when you need him?
