• Stupid Ads Have Big Effect With Stupid People

    Well, there is no such thing as underestimating the collective intelligence of American voters…

    Tom Daschle, the former Democratic Senate majority leader, said in an interview with the Financial Times that the Mr. Obama's Republican rival John McCain was seeing a "short-term blip" as a result of the advertising, including one that used the image of Charlton Heston as Moses to mock the supposedly messianic Mr. Obama as being "The One."

    "To a certain extent the ads are having some effect," Mr Daschle said. "But you can't be thrown off your game plan by a momentary dip in polls."

    is it just a weird coincidence that the stupider the ads get, the more they benefit the Republicans?
