Some of you may be too young to remember this political year. I just graduated high school and this ad creeped me out. I went on to drop out of college to join a freshmen congressman’s staff on Capitol Hill. It was 1965, and I was making more than a new school teacher in Fairfax County. Politics never made much sense after that either. Moral of my story, after 50 years, we’re still fooked. Amirite?
“Daisy”, sometimes known as “Daisy Girl” or “Peace, Little Girl”, was a controversial political advertisement aired on television during the 1964 United States presidential election by incumbent president Lyndon B. Johnson’s campaign.
Open Thread of course 🙂
