"Uh... My Policies are Up Here"

(hattip Amicus Bloggus Hal)

A new campaign has popped up, brought to you by Vera Lengsfeld of the conservative party in Germany:What is it?
They show photographs of [each of Angela Merkel and Vera Lengsfeld] in an evening dress showing plenty of cleavage with the slogan: "We have more to offer" emblazoned over the chancellor's breasts.
In this country, the conservative party rails against big government and in Germany they support big... you know what, never mind. This really is too despicable for breast related double entendres. And I love breast related double entendres!

Lengsfeld "explanation:"
"If only a tenth of them also look at the content of my policies, I will have reached many more people than I could have done with classic street canvassing."
Vera, no one votes for the cow, when they get the milk for free.

Doesn't this smack of actresses who start in porn but want to transition into real movies. That doesn't happen because pornography isn't viewed of as legitimate art. Therefore, there is no ability to transition to real movies. By debasing Angela Merkel, Vera Lengsfeld has rendered herself illegitimate. She has made herself into the "boobs" candidate, and you don't transition from that into mainstream politics. Sadly, she brought Angela Merkel's chest down to her level. Like the absurd discussion over Hillary Clinton's neckline, Angela Merkel did nothing to ask for this treatment.

Lastly, could you ever imagine a male candidate EVER adopting another man for a similar campaign?
The Conservative party - We know how to handle packages. Let us take care of yours.

I didn't think so.

  1. I cannot imagine a male using this technique. It is therefore illegitimate.
