I think Focus on the Family totally pwnd* Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and abortion supporters with their ad that never even mentions abortion or a choice to chose life. While some pro-lifers will be dismayed that the commercial seemed to not address the topic directly other than pointing to a URL with the full story, it still gets the point across. All the free publicity ahead of time made it so that the majority of the people will know what the ad is referring to so all the outcry only helped the pro-life side. These groups seem even sillier to objecting to the ad now then they were at first. I don’t know if Focus on the Family planned to punk abortion groups in this matter – if they did brilliant.
*pwned A term developed from gaming for “totally owning” somebody, the pwn in the spelling is a common misspelling of “own” when fingers are misplaced on the keyboard.
Pro-abortion groups pre-reaction to to the ad was stupid enough, but the AP takes this stupidity to another level.
And a commercial by conservative Christian group Focus on the Family, perhaps the most anticipated ad of the night, hinted at a serious subject although it took a humorous tone too. Heisman winner Tim Tebow and his mother talk about her difficult pregnancy with him and how she was advised to end the pregnancy–implying an antiabortion message–but ended with Tebow tackling his mom and saying the family must be “tough.
Good thing that reporters have editors to fact check things – oh wait they totally got wrong both ads that appeared.
