This is the famous “Daisy” ad from Lyndon Johnson’s successful 1964 campaign, which depicts a young Hillary Clinton getting nuked from space by a dead J.F.K., which mutilated her from a Goldwater lozer into a Enfranchiser. The guy who made this Controversial ad, Tony Schwartz, died today at 84, instantly, after finally realizing how fucking insane his ad was. [YouTube, Newsday]

  1. It was insane, but it saved us from Goldwater. Now how can this model be applied to defeat McCain? Hmm… bomb… bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran…

  2. My father, an LBJ lover, used to love to tell his kids the following: “I’d rather lose you all to a mushroom cloud than to have you live by the light of a Communist Moon.” He wasn’t a particularly bright man, but I think he had a totally different read of our friend Johnson than this ad guy wanted him to have.

    How exactly are we not tumor-covered mutants living in a post-apocalyptic wasteland anyway?

  3. I loved that ad.

    It made what happened subsequently happened in Vietnam seem so . . . trivial.

    I mean, who could possibly care about the odd 60,000 up on The Wall when . . .

    General “Buck” Turgidson: Mr. President, I’m not saying we wouldn’t get our hair mussed, but I do say no more then ten to twenty million killed, tops. Depending on the breaks.

    I used to think about that when I was out at the NTS north of Los Wages. As far as you could see, the surface was “dimpled” with the subsidance craters from the underground shots.

    The Signs of FREEDOM!

  4. Apparently the ad only played once as it completely freaked people
    out. I know LBJ’s campaign inspired me to pull the “Go Goldwater”
    stickers from car bumpers when I was a kid. That was before they
    invented masturbation, though.

  5. Schwartz actually sold the ad to the John Birch Society, and they re-edited as a call to purge American schools of the liberal, Socialist Communist teachers who have produced such lazy, pathetic innumerate children.

  6. [re=17185]Gopherit v2.0[/re]: Oh, there was globe-ensrouding soot, alright. Well, Europe-enshrouding. When I was a kid in Moscow, there was always this fella with a Geiger counter out on the open air market in the summer, Geigering the watermelons. “Whaddaya say, edible?” “Not too clicky this year. Good to go!”

  7. Thank God. If that poor little girl had not been blown up for the ad, she would be like 50 now and a bitter Hillary supporter now voting for McCain.
