Culture Wars

Via Digby's Blog:

Right-wing Cadillac ad answered by satirical Ford ad:

Yes, mega-corporation Ford Motor Co. is co-opting left-wing themes and adopting a young, hip, satirical stance. But just the fact they are going this route indicates to me that this point of view has cultural salience.  Tell me we would have seen anything like this 10 years ago, much less as an advertising pitch from an iconic American brand. Seems to me it's a victory anytime libertarian, I did it all on my own, America-hell yeah! ideology gets mocked in such a public way.
