political ad: news from your future chinese rulers

Oh, hell no. Here we go again. This ridiculous campaign commercial for Nevada congressional candidate Mark Amodei is yet another fearmongering effort to prey on xenophobic American fears of China's imminent economic takeover. Behold, a scary news report from your future Chinese rulers:

This campaign ad is racist bullshit. Amodei has figured out the best way to get voters on his side is to scare the crap out of them, and his campaign appears to have taken a few cues from that other freaky future China commercial, only with crappier special effects. (I guess campaign donations alone don't get you very good CGI.) Unfortunately, I suspect we'll be seeing a lot more of these ads -- from both sides -- as China becomes politicians' favorite boogeyman.
