Just guess where this Obama ad is playing. No, guess. Go ahead and guess!!

Okay, I’ll tell you.

It’s running on wee TV screens on gas pumps throughout Florida. No wherever could they have got that idea from? And does all the commentary about how the Harper Conservatives were reaching new lows in the dumbing-down of politics still apply to Barack Obama? (Perhaps not. There is actually no appearance in Obama’s ad by an animated stain shouting “Yoo-Hoo!” Although he hasn’t named his running mate yet, so there’s still hope…)
