Elsewhere in national news, as the economy teeters on a precipice, pundits are worried about silly commercials. The problem is, all the intellectuals are trying to gauge how stupid the ignorant mass is, and they keep over-estimating. Being the stupidest of all, even I can see that somebody is trying to make me think the Obama campaign launched an evil ad, when at least either the evil ad was launched by the Romney campaign to make the Obama campaign look bad, or the ad was launched by the Obama campaign to make people think it was launched by the Romney campaign. I suppose somebody with an education would see exactly how many stings are reversed.

Meanwhile and far away, the economy continues to ooze like slime off the proverbial cliff.
