Super Bowl commercials have become about as big a deal as the football game. But the New York Times advertising critic overreached in linking this year’s ads to the war in Iraq. "The ongoing war seemed to linger just below the surface of many of this year’s commercials," Stuart Elliott wrote. "More than a dozen spots celebrated violence in an exaggerated, cartoonlike vein that was intended to be humorous, but often came across as cruel or callous." So President Bush is to blame for the Garmin personal navigation system commercial in which a car-driver-turned-superhero (in photo) battles a "Maposaurus" monster?
