this is awesome.  You should also look at Sarah Silverman's add too. Also NSFW.

Anticipated Republican responses:

1. Well Sam Jackson is black so... invalid!

2. "Paid for by the Jewish Council for Education and Research" - Zionist propaganda blah blah blah!

Proles: Aaah Hitler bad! He wants to destroy our faith!

"As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice." - Adolf Hitler
Proles: Aaah Hitler bad! Truth and justice are bad! No wait, I mean he's not a real Christian!

"As soon as by one's own propaganda, even a glimpse of right on the other side is admitted, the cause for doubting one's own right is laid." - Adolf Hitler
Me: Very wise words that explains the above examples.
Proles: Aaah Hitler bad! You're a Nazi! Nazi bad!

If God exists at all he clearly wishes to reside exclusively in the imagination.

The one I often see is republicans going on about how liberals basically want to get rid of religion because they've clipped their wings a bit in trying to make government more secular and fairer for all walks of life.

So to see a Jewish crowd strongly supporting liberals, should be a "in your face thing", but don't you worry, they'll fall back on "oh, I mean Christian values" and completely ignore all of the liberal Christians out there, but then they're not 'true' Christians. ;)

Ha!  Had to sent that to my politically conservative mother.

That is sixty kinds of awesome. ;D
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.

LOVED it. 

For those of you who don't have little kids, you might not be aware of the fact that this ad is a take-off on a very recent children's book which Samuel L Jackson narrated  last year. 

In spite of being a "children's book," it is really meant for the parents, and it would be best not to play in the company of little ones.

The language is a bit crass, but far less insulting than the cleverly couched insults of the GOP.

I have to agree with the basic message: "hey, this is important!"  In an election with low voter turnout the advantage goes to the most motivated fringe groups.  The ONLY way to counteract them is to invalidate their participation with huge numbers of normal people.
Give a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a night.  Set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
