At Least Amtrak Can Deliver Commercials

Nevermind that Amtrak Sucks, great job on this commercial that positions Amtrak as the alternative to flying, much like I recommended back in March of 2008.

Now, if only this commercial was true, and not a blatant lie telling giant tales of a nationalized rail service that actually works.

Ah, advertising.

  • You are a very scary and very dumb person, Jetpack.
    Ride a train and open your poor, poor libertarian eyes.
    Ayn is dead.

  • Never was an Ayn fan, Bob. And I'm not a Libertarian. Now come out of your closet and fight like a man. Your assumption that I'm either of these things as a result of my wishing Amtrak could get their shit together makes you the scary and dumb one.

  • I was really excited to discover I finally had moved to a city (Columbia SC) with a full-blown Amtrak station. I can zip right up the Eastern seaboard to visit my brother in DC, and then on to Boston for my brother-in-law! No annoying airport hassles! The kids would LOOOOVE a train ride! Win-win-win!

    I had started buying a ticket (price be damned, I wanted a train ride) when I realized the *only* trains through Columbia left the station at FOUR IN THE FREAKIN' MORNING.

    We'll drive.
