    I’d have to seriously ponder accepting an invitation to one of the first group’s events.

    As to the second, it took less than 33 seconds to know I’d never turn up.

    It certainly beats the alternative. Even though the language barrier would prevent me from truly enjoying all of the debauchery.

    As for the latter, I lack the requisite country club membership and dinner jacket to fit in.

      Well, the written slogan at the end means “My vote for [in the sense of “into”] the trash!” The spoken comments went by a bit too quickly for my rusty German.

    I find myself no longer wanting to call myself an “anarchist” or an “english speaker.”

    Oh….so that’s where people get the idea that anarchy implies chaos.

    So, you’re saying you don’t want a Tim James for Governor sign in your front yard? As for the anarchist ad, it did seem very German (odd and vaguely off-putting) to me. Those nipple stickers didn’t appear to be your standard pasties either.

      Maybe if it was in Spanish.

        Tim James seems like the poster boy for the dreaded “White Male Privilege.”

          He looks like he’s planning to beat the viewer up.

          But politics by intimidation is so rational.

    If anarchy means fat german people dancing to music while shoveling greasy food into their mouths, I think I’d go with minarchy instead.

      Minarchy means fat German people dancing to music, shoveling greasy food into their mouths, taxing you very slightly, and forbidding competition in legal services.

        I go with the status quo then, or whatever there is without fat germans doing such things.

    I agree. The first commercial is weird and off-putting, the second is just plain stupid.

      What I wish upon the guy in the second commercial is that the group in the first commercial move in next door to him.

        That sounds like one of those zany movies where the joyless curmudgeon comes around at the end and learns to lighten up.

          Or he goes mad and is dragged out in a straitjacket at the end.

    I think I lived next door to Vivian from The Young Ones at one time. There was an unlicensed frat at Texas A&M (of all places!) called Phi Delta Hoser. Their house, next to my apartment building, had this giant banner of Peter Tosh hanging down the front. I think they were too stoned to find their way to Austin.

    Well, the first one is a long standing piece of performance art inspired by the fact that Germany requires its public TV/radio stations to regularly air each party’s political ads before elections.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, the Anarchist Pogo Party of Germany!

    Charles has found another must-see Alabama campaign video.

    The first commercial looks like something out of The Holy Mountain.

    We see the Alabama campaign ads in northwest Florida as well. They should drop the pretense and just admit they’re running for patriarch.

      What’s wrong with being patriarch?
