Here’s what the hardworking staff at Campaign Outsider is wondering:
What are the odds that both Obamas would be featured in unauthorized advertisements on the same day?
Exhibit A: Michelle Obama in this “Fur-Free and Fabulous!” ad from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (via the Boston Globe).
Exhibit B: Barack Obama on this WEATHERPROOF billboard in Times Square (via the New York Times).
Who was it again that warned about the threat posed by the advertising-industrial complex?
Oh, right. Us.
