friday fun: Jay Smooth on Christine O'Donnell's latest campaign ad

Hanna and I watched this on Wednesday night and were in tears. 'Cause really, he says it all. All that is wrong with this ad and all that is wrong with hard-core populism in American politics.

I'm all for a healthy dose of skepticism when it comes to smartness, intelligence, credentials, etc. But I also don't think "common sense" is good enough, wise enough, to be an indication that we should trust someone with power.

Also: who wants to mess with the space-time continuum? Seriously!

No transcript seems to be available yet, but watch Ill Doctrine for an update on that front.

Happy Friday, folks! Have a good (hopefully three-day) weekend.
