Allee Willis’ Kitsch O’ The Day – Politics and the National Rooster Crowing Contest Trophy

Certifikitsch Winner

When it comes to an award for crowing the loudest, that should go to politicians. If I get enraged by the money that movie stars make imagine how insane I go seeing the money that’s dumped into political ads on TV that tell us almost nothing about the actual goals of who made them. I don’t want to hear anyone crowing when they throw hundreds of millions of dollars away on campaigns. Do some real good and give that money to saving school systems or cities from going bankrupt. Neither Meg Whitman or Carly Fiorina, the loudest crowers of all in the election yesterday, deserve any prize, which is exactly what they got for dumping all that cash down the drain. I don’t like to hear the other politicians crowing either, and I really don’t want to see any ads about ballot measures which, despite their cheesy production value, cost a fortune to shoot and are never clear about what the measure is really about.

At least with this rooster I have the option of winding him up to crow so I only hear him when I want to hear him…

…unlike all the politicians who drive me nuts constantly jabbering their text clouds of hyped-up nothingness on the airwaves. So despite the fact that almost every candidate who ran or makers of almost every measure that made it on the ballot are well deserving of this tin National Rooster Crowing Contest souvenir, I’m keeping it here. Because I feel like a winner today now that all those stupid ads are off the air.

    Agree with you about politicians. But on a much more superficial level– I LOVE THIS PIECE! Love that it’s a souvenir from a crowing contest, love that it actually does something and isn’t just decorative, love the tin litho, love that it’s vintage. Totally unique. I’m pressing the invisible “envy” button.

    Amen sister!! Amen! I’m jumping up and down and applauding you!! That bitch Meg Whateverhernameis could have housed CA’s homeless with the money she FLUSHED down the toilet. She could have been a hero instead of the cretin she is.

    No, I have no strong feelings about this whatsoever. Not me.

    P.S. Nice rooster.

      Go, Lisa! Cretin fo sho! Also arrogant. Money doesn’t buy quite everything. I love your passion. Big overbloated salaries make me insane too. No one deserves $20 million for being in a movie either. And all that tech money being thrown around in the 90s that led to the bubble burst was pretty immoral too.
