As if there wasn’t enough obnoxiousness to go around, Chez Diva notices that
That’s right, Estee Lauder’s little boutique brand M.A.C. Cosmetics‘ pouty mouth spokesperson Sandra Bernhard is promoting “PlushGlass” by mouthing off and insulting Republican women. Here’s the words: “little freaked out, intimidated, frightened, right-wing Republican thin-lipped bitch”. Now go see the disgusting, hate-filled internet video advertisement / commercial.
While the tastelessness(*) of the approach is obvious, I wonder who was the genius to approve the ad, which will alienate at least 50% of the female electorate.
Oh! I get it. That market fragment doesn’t count, at least for the crowd that M.A.C. wants to attract. On the other hand, as ChezDiva commenter Cricket noticed, maybe Sandra’s talking about Hillary.
Drudge picked up the item, too.
(*) I realize that I probably shouldn’t bring up tastelessness after posting these two items.
At the same time, I’m not designing a national advertising campaign aimed at convincing women to spend $17.50 plus tax (in NJ, $18.25) on a lipstick that will probably do the same as a product that costs $3.69 plus tax ($3.95 in NJ).
Update, 8:30 PM Well, whaddaya know. The “little freaked out, intimidated, frightened, right-wing Republican thin-lipped bitch” disappeared from the ad.
As the Church Lady said, Isn’t that precious?
