Today’s ad is a parody, but isn’t all that different from the real thing.
Today’s political ad is only 7 years old, and yet feels like a relic from a long time ago. Barack Obama’s intelligence, integrity and remarkable personal narrative filled many of us with a previously unimaginable degree of hope for the nation. I believe he’s been an excellent president, but the transformative governance I was looking for never actually came. I doubt I’ll ever put that kind of faith in a candidate again.

Rubio’s a bully.
Cruz is oily.
Fiorina is cray-cray.
Trump’s just bloated.
Paul is building the brand.
Carson is sooo high (obvs).
Bush is shitting his pants.
Kasich. The poor guy hasn’t got a chance.
