They do a lot of clip art stuff, including some things incorporating art from classic WWII propaganda posters. Sounds like building on the the cultural commons to me…

They aren’t remixes really, but at least it shows some budding conservatives using video media. There weren’t any before.

Remixing by definition means a) illegally appropriating copyrighted work, and b) using it creatively to create new meaning.

This is not to suggest that conservatives aren’t creative; that’d be mean-spirited as well as flying in the face of reality. But the creativity demonstrated by most conservatives I’ve ever been aware of is more in the spirit of supporting the status quo. Since remixing by definition is outside that, it seems fundamentally inconsistent with the conservative world view as I understand it.

It’s not a remix of Mastercard per se, but utilizes their “priceless” theme in its portrait of Senator Kerry.
