Default Pig in a convertible

Been pondering this commercial by well know leftist Geico (no one fires Gunny). The message I get is not so well disguised. Anyone else see it? Anyone?

Pig is a liberal! Pig believes he was pulled over for who he is and not for what he did! Also Pig is the perp name for a cop!

What do I win?

Bingo, Geico's take on profiling. But let's see who will be profiling who when 15 million immigrants start demanding free auto insurance, they sure ain't gonna pay for it, and you can bet Obama will demand they get it for free. It's only fair.

Default fine print

i'm sure there was a fine print clause in his contract that resulted in his dismissal or he would have sued.

a celeb going public with personal political views often suffers the consequences because the company they work for doesn't want to lose customers. the Dixie Chicks became the poster child of what can happen.

They already have free insurance. They just don't get it and walk away from their car or truck.

Interesting observation. Sort of the opposite of the caveman series, where no one on planet earth could complain of the prejudice. Much of the point of advertising is to get into peoples heads.

Nah, liberals would never insinuate those things about cops and minorities.
