I'm in the process of verifying that the GOP in Oregon is in the process of having these new PSA's/commercials made.
UPDATE I called the The Oregon Republican Party and was told that they had no comment.
I redacted the company letter head that the bids went out on. Check out these docs. They are a series of PSA's designed for Oregonians to be "Thankful" that the Republican Party has been so good for the country. They are even taking credit for ending racism in America.
The main question about these scripts is whether they were created by someone at the Oregon GOP, or at the Portland advertising agency that it came from. We'll be trying to find this out.
The opening line of the first PSA that is titled "Thank You" says it all. Check out the coded language they use. It's pretty unbelievable.
OPEN ON A YOUNG MULATTO FEMALE DOCTOR. Thank you for ending slavery.
Here's the first one called " Thank You"
OPEN ON A YOUNG MULATTO FEMALE DOCTOR.
Thank you for ending slavery.
A WOMAN EXECUTIVE STANDING IN FRONT OF HER DESK.
Thank you for giving women the right to vote.
A MAN ON CANNON BEACH WITH HIS KIDS AND THEIR DOG PLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND.

A WOMAN SMILING DOWN AT HER NEW CHILD. PUSH IN ON CHILD’S FACE. BURN TO WHITE.
FEMALE VO: There are so many things we have to be thankful for, thanks to the Republican Party.
SUPER: THANK YOU REPUBLICANS.LEGAL:
PAID FOR BY THE REPUBLICAN PARTY OF OREGON.
Yes, the GOP has even cured cancer. I've listed the titles and a screen grab of each different segment.
"Become a Believer"
"What He Started"
And of course. "Thank You"
They are counting on Lincoln to help save them in this series. What happened to Reagan? Strom Thurmond?
Check out these docs and go have some fun making some videos based on them. I bet the blogosphere can do a really bang-up job.
