We Have Your Daughter

Speaking of 24 and captivity narratives involving young females, it's worth looking at the recent New York-phobic video from Mitt Romney, which will soon be replacing his current run of more obviously "negative" ads during the holiday season.

Strangely, coverage in The New York Times during the period about the case, such as Volunteers Search for Missing Girl, 14, in Party Underworld and Missing Teen-Ager Found in New Jersey, don't mention Romney by name.

I do also have to point out that as more political ads are being seen by online video audiences, it does seem like the talking heads in these spots loom larger, as if shot closer to the camera. This one doesn't have the grotesque proportions of many others, however, and is shot more like a conventional campaign ad.
