Got Trust?

There’s a reason why, as you know, airlines don’t push each others’ safety records as a competitive issue in advertising. If you’re in the flying people around at 30,000 feet in the air business there are just some issues you don’t want to get into. And that’s what came into my head when I saw how these new wannabe RNCs are competing on the basis of who you can trust not to use your hard-earned rightwing dollar on faux lesbian bondage clubs and $1000 a night hotel rooms.

This morning we saw an web ad from the National Republican Trust with the tag line “Got Trust?” Take a look. It couldn’t be much more explicit. (And not in the faux-lesbian bondage kind of way…)
