Thoughts and ramblings on tech, media, culture, and food. Plus some other stuff, I'm sure.

I Debated Whether or Not to Post This...

...but it scared me too much not to. Or maybe it just made me sick. I'm not sure which. If you've seen the incredible German film Good Bye Lenin! and have done any reading from the WWII era or into the cultural and political climate in Europe countries post-WWII and through the Cold War (pre-Berlin Wall falling) this might strike you similarly.

But it certainly didn't rest easy with me. Even if this had been made for John McCain I would shun it, because it seems like an exploitation of children to me, as well as minor deity glorification or idolatry.

There was a response (which I didn't watch until after I saw the original) that puts it into (albeit right-leaning biased) perspective. Regardless, that really does rub me the wrong way.
