AdMonitor (CA): Vulture Capitalism

By · Apr, 30 2010

What is it with California’s political advertising this year? First it was Carly Fiorina’s infamously creepy “Demon Sheep” ad. Now, it’s GOP gubernatorial candidate Steve Poizner using ravenous vultures in an attack on GOP front-runner Meg Whitman and her previous relationship with embattled investment firm Goldman Sachs.

Populist outrage over a near-global fiscal catastrophe and an economic system just back from the brink ┬áhas brought us this – one billionaire accusing another billionaire of vulture capitalism. It makes one wonder what type of ads Teddy Roosevelt would have run a century ago?
