This is getting scary...
I am speaking of the looming U.S. Presidential Elections.
Today on Howard Stern they did an "on the street" segment.
The segment had a staffer going out and asking people who they wanted to vote for and then, based off the answer the staffer would bait the person with the other candidates idea(s). It was pretty eye opening.
Example (not verbatim but close to get the point across)
Staffer - Excuse me, who are you voting for?
Person on street - Obama.
Staffer - Okay, great..is it because he wants to keep the troops on the ground in Iraq?
Person - Yeah, we need to stay till we get that job done.
Now granted..the idea of these types of "gimmicks" might have been 30+ people in the making, but still...they played 4-5 segments and all of them were the polar opposite of their candidates presidential vision.
