This is the sort of liberal propaganda that sets my teeth on edge. Notwithstanding the fact that we have a volunteer military so if little Alex is going to serve, he has to deal with "Helicopter Mommy" (hover, hover!) there, or the fact that in 18 years or so, John McCain will be in the grave, likely, this ad only serves to make me think how utterly stupid was the tool that put it together. And the actress for appearing in it.
Little Alex is exempt given his age but whoever his parents are, they're tools as well.
Hey, how does Alex's Daddy feel about it? Or is he even in the picture? Does Alex get a choice when he is 18? Will Alex realize that since he makes his mother's heart pound everytime she looks at him, he can use that to his advantage when he (a) fails algebra, (b) crashes the family car, and (c) knocks up the neighbor's daughter, because known of those will be his fault but Mommy will know who to blame and against whom to file suit? Alex, dude, a little advice in 16 years . . . with this moron for a mother, hold out for the Mustang when she tries to convince you that you want a Prius.
