Yesterday’s Iran-NIE bombshell not only has deflated White House bluster on Iran, it has thrown political campaigns into disarray. Some Republicans in particular (but not exclusively) were planning on running a let’s be afraid of Iran campaign. Well, what else have they got to run on?
Some are calling it the best political ad ever (they probably never saw the “Daisy” ad). While I think it hits some high notes, it is weird to see my favorite cranky old man – Mike Gravel, hammering the words out – while surrounded by images and music inspired by the 1960s. (Is that how I look to the young people around me?). Enjoy.
