A Brief History of U.S. Intervention in Iraq Over the Past 55 Years

Bush's Iraq speech echoes a new voice - Americas - International Herald Tribune
There could be no doubt about the theme of President George W. Bush's Iraq war strategy speech on Wednesday at the U.S. Naval Academy. He used the word victory 15 times in the address; "Plan for Victory" signs crowded the podium he spoke on; and the word heavily peppered the accompanying 35-page National Security Council document titled, "Our National Strategy for Victory in Iraq."

Thirty Second Narratives - analysis of music in political commercials
Thirty Second Narratives

In thirty seconds, a political television commercial has the daunting task of convincing a swing voter that its candidate is the right person for the job of president of the United States. Instead of simply stating facts about the candidates and leaving the analysis of these facts up to the viewers, the commercials create narratives that encourage the audience to come to desired conclusions about the different candidates. The advertisements use several different television median that, though incomplete when separated, become complete narratives when observed as a whole. In this website, I will look into campaign commercials run for and against George Bush and John Kerry, the two prospective candidates for the Democratic and Republican Parties. What makes these commercials appealing to the viewers? How can they depend on thirty seconds of air time to convince a viewer that their candidate is the right choice? Are there similarities between the commercials of apposing candidates?

To study these commercials, I will use Labovian analysis of narrative as described by Michael Toolan to find what makes these thirty-second television blips into successful and persuasive narratives. I'll examine their combination of verbal, visual, and audible texts to make incomplete parts complete narratives. Finally, I will look at some inconspicuous measures the commercials use to make their candidates appealing to as many voters as possible.
