Some marketing genius at GM has come up with the brilllllliant (feel free not to trill your l there if you’re worried about being called a French sympathizer) idea to hire Sean Hannity as part of its “You’re a Great American” campaign, where he’ll feature new GM cars on his show.
I guess if by “great” they mean an unprincipled, bullying, pathologically lying, slandering, partisan nutjob, then yeah. He’s great. I too tend to associate the word “great” with comments like “it doesn’t say anywhere in this constitution this idea of the separation of church and state.” And his notable response to a dissenter on his show, “is it that you hate George Bush or hate America?”
From the head of sales and marketing at GM:
GM is the biggest advertiser in America and to tell our story we advertise across a tremendously wide array of media trying to connect with all Americans irrespective of ethnic, religious or political affiliations.
The day Randy Rhodes, Bill Maher, or Keith Olbermann are also considered “great” Americans by GM, I might buy this.
Speaking of buying, we need two new cars this year when we move to LA. Hm.
