We're getting into the third act of the Glenn Beck biopic. This is where the main character's carefully foreshadowed selling-out phase reaches a ridiculous height. Any second now, an old zoo crew buddy will show up to say, "You've changed man. You used to be about the crazy, reckless, borderline-racist rants. Now, you're all about the money!"

It was only a matter of time before the nation's first black president went to bat for the nation's second black president…
I know this isn't what he says in the ad, but all I heard was, "Four years later, our enemies have been brought to justice, our heroes are coming home, our penguins are marching forward and our shawshanks have been redeemed. I'm Morgan Freeman, and I should narrate everything."

Carol Duffy — like Buzz Bissinger before her — is a "lifelong Democrat" who has somehow been convinced to put her faith in the Republican plan for America's future.
Coincidentally, her Republican son Sean Duffy is running for re-election to the U.S. Congress….
Wow. That really worked out well. What are the odds?

During his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2008, Barack Obama proclaimed, "If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things."
So it's a good thing that Big Bird stands at 8 feet, 2 inches tall, because the latest Obama campaign ad — running on cable television — features a narrator intoning, "Mitt Romney knows it's not Wall Street you have to worry about, it's Sesame Street. Mitt Romney: Taking on our enemies no matter where they nest…"

Wow! This has got to be a crushing blow for the Romney campaign. Just after learning that the usually-Republican "waitress moms" were leaning toward Obama this time around, we're now finding out — via an ad from the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees — that Romney is also losing the just-as-coveted "that one sanitation worker guy who picks up my refuse I think" vote.
Makes you wonder what other contingents of non-Romney voters Democrats will triumphantly point to as the election nears. The "people who met Romney at a party one time" demographic? The "guy behind the counter at Culver's but not the one who actually fulfills Romney's order" demographic? The "other person in traffic with Romney" demographic?
I sure hope not. I don't know if his campaign could withstand such a loss.
