You Tube weekend

I haven't paid much attention to the PA 12th CD special election to succeed John Murtha but this ad caught my eye because it is so stupid, creative and funny all at the same time.

The Republicans keep trying to demonize Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi which probably works in their echo chamber but I don't think it translates to the larger electorate. In this spot the soft spoken grandmother who represents Sodom on the San Andreas is transformed into a giant 50 foot monster. The Tubes and old 50's sci-fi films should get royalties. The puppetering looks like something the South Park/Team America guys would do. All that is missing is Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann shooting the flamethrowers at the end.
