A good idea gone awry…
Team Obama Wednesday announced to great fanfare it would stream ads ripping John McCain on screens at dozens of filling stations around the Sunshine State - only to have Gas Station TV pull the plug at the last minute. "We avoid politics in general," Gas Station TV CEO David Leider said.There's still good news going forward, though. First, it was a good idea, novel and relevant. The team that came up with it is likely to come up with more novel and relevant good ideas. Second, the campaign hierarchy was willing to commit some resources to the idea, and they were able to. People throughout the campaign should be encouraged to know that good creative ideas will be heard and may well be supported.
And that "ripping John McCain" thing? I like that, too.
