Everyone please post! Politics and American Myth
Please look on YouTube at a few political advertisements from this presidential campaign. In your post please provide the link to the advertisement that most interests you. In light of the readings we've done during this sequence, about American "myths" of educational empowerment, please discuss how the ad you've chosen addresses some of the same themes. If possible, mention the essay that the advertisements reminds you of. Do these ads, in general, promote American myths or refute them and declare selected myths "bankrupt"? How so?
