Strange Fruit Campaign

"Southern trees bear a strange fruit,
blood on the leaves and blood at the root.
…strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.
…Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck,
for the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
for the sun to rot, for the tree to drop.
Here is a strange and bitter crop."
--Lewis Allen/ sung by Billie Holiday

You can tell a tree by it’s fruit. The Obama campaign is providing a crop of positive messages. The fruit of the Obama tree is hope. It is safe to serve to your entire family.

The Clinton campaign’s yield has rotted over the weekend. It looked sweet at the end of last week’s CNN debate, but it has a strange and bitter odor now. It is poison, and unfit for democratic consumption.
