Heartland Institute Poster Fail

May 4, 2012

What the hell. It’s Friday. I’ll play.

Heartland Institute, the purveyors of climate disinformation and fine tobacco promotions, has begun a billboard campaign using the images of mass murderers and psychopaths to represent science literate citizens who understand climate change.

Lovely, right?

I couldn’t help but create my own. Rather like shooting fish in a barrel.

Kind of like eating peanuts. I could do this all day, but more important tasks beckon.

    Greenman, I would note that while you or I may well look on Bachmann or Palin as pair of balloon headed “dumb WASP” religious wacko’s, but to the Tea Party or Faux News (the ultimate audience of the Heartland institute) they are “intellectuals” and “great leaders”, so I won’t be surprised if the damage limitation program involves producing posters much like this….but not with Joe Camel or (a real)dick Cheney :

      why are they producing some of the stupidest people as leaders..i breifly looked at a conspiracy theory that suggested a person discoved some documents whereby a plan to dumb down people had been drawn up..

      I am more than fine with them playing up Palin, Bachman, or any of the other generally-recognized-as-cretinous fox news spokespeople as their fronts. It just further relegates their message to the right wing echo-chamber ghetto.
