And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.

Let’s face it, if you’re gonna take a lint roller to your pants, you might as well do it in the front row of a Raptors game. Right, Drake?

Here’s a screenshot from an Americans for Prosperity ad ripping Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado, with a grim shot of him and the president.
Why are they so grim? Oh yeah… the photo is from the immediate aftermath of the Aurora shooting. Classy. As you can imagine, people aren’t happy.

Yes, that’s Tim Cook narrating. As Rene Ritchie notes:

My best guess as to why Tim Cook narrated the “Better” video is because it speaks to Apple’s core values, and speaking to Apple’s core values is both deeply important to Tim Cook, and how he’s been positioned atop and within Apple.

You can say Tim Cook is not a product guy, but there’s no question that he knows better than anyone how Apple does what it does. And because he cares about it, he’s made that process… better.

This feels like the point where Tim Cook finally drew the line in the sand and showed what Apple looks like under his image. He’s been moving in this direction for a while, but unlike prior efforts, this doesn’t feel like Steve Jobs’ Apple under new ownership. This has Cook’s fingerprints all over it. More power to him.
