Who's the nut?

This is actually kind of heartwarming.

That's an ingenious political ad.

It's self-effacing — even self-mocking — it goes out of its way to make Obama look like a champ, and it reminds us that much of politicking is an act, and the actors are often regular people you'd probably have a hell of a time with, if you got to know them.

Having acknowledged that, however, "Teenage Republican Camp" sounds positively triple-whammy-cubed nightmarish.

A Wes Craven screenplay in development, perhaps.
