Screenshots from a Republican National Committee ad (circa July 2008) touting John McCain's supposed environmental/energy cred. Note well that the ad's name is "Balance"—the idea of balance obviously being closely associated with hexagonal tiling, with its six equally-spaced neighbors, and its (accurately) perceived association with organic geometries in general. It is also interesting because McCain himself had another ad a few weeks earlier (called "Purpose") that featured a similar motif but with squares instead of hexagons. Could an ad featuring a three-dimensional tessellation of rhombic dodecahedra be next? Only time will tell.
