Jamie Raskin has a digital video out this week, and he’s promoting it on Facebook. Nothing wrong with that, but in an effort to distinguish himself from Kathleen Matthews and David Trone, Raskin’s gotten more than a little carried away. How much? So much so that he gushes “seriously, you can’t buy this!” right under the word “sponsored” on the Facebook post.
Seriously, you CAN buy this. And you just did. Seriously? “My money good, theirs bad” remains a remarkably bad persuasion technique. Seriously.
