Before the results are in for the Guam election, I thought I would post below some of the ads from the Democratic and Republican Gubernatorial teams. Some of them were pretty interesting.
The Guamanian Dream. This isn't really a political ad, it's just a mashed up collection of stereotypical images and metaphors meant to convey strength, good feelings and the future. Oh, wait, that is what a political ad is.
The Carl Gutierrez narrative of him reaching out to help anyone in need is very appealing, unless you actually think about that as a matter of Government policy, where it would lead to bankruptcy and serious government overextension.
I don't know what is more painful to listen to. Pandering in Chamorro to voters, or pandering in Tagalog. I understand if their Tagalog is bad because they don't really speak it, but it is disgusting to have Chamorro candidates who can't even pretend to speak the language.
Why couldn't Carl Gutierrez get an endorsement from Clinton today? It is a nice historical piece, but it also reminds us how old Carl Gutierrez is.
Taya' snark, I just really like this video.
Ya-hu este, sa' puru ha' gi fino' Chamoru.
