Liberal Icons: Apple’s Web of Tax Shelters Saved It Billions, Panel Finds
This is awesome!
A well-known Hollywood producer and director has cut an ad against Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) riffing on when the senator chided an Army brigadier general last year for calling her “ma’am.”
David Zucker, the director of the 1980 comedy classic “Airplane!” who has worked on myriad films including the “Naked Gun” and “Scary Movie” franchises, directed the “Call Me Senator” spot for Right Change, a 527 and 501(c)4 organization “committed to supporting policies and candidates dedicated to fiscal responsibility and a strong national security for the United States, while upholding the principles of freedom, competitiveness and entrepreneurial spirit of the American people.”
Zucker cut an ad against presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) for the Club for Growth in 2004. In 2006, he made a spot against “making nice to our enemies,” showing Secretary of State Madeline Albright serving cookies to terrorists and ripping on Democrats for not taking the North Korean nuclear threat seriously.
Zucker has described himself as a “9/12 Republican” who switched to the party out of national security concerns but remains liberal on environmental and social issues.
Heh. Make sure to pass it on!
