It's somewhat agreed that Hillary tapped into the Bush/McCain scare tactic bag of magic tricks with her 03:00 phone-ringing in the White House campaign ad, but it's a miracle that more people aren't outright laughing at it.
It's so full of holes and flaws as to not be taken seriously, besides being overly melodramatic.
Proving how desperate the Hillary camp is at the moment, they must have thrown it together in about three minutes at 3 a.m. without putting an instant's worth of thought into it.
First mistake: Don't feakin' try to scare us. We're not buying into that any more. If Hillary hasn't learned that, then she not as quick a study as she'd like us to believe. And for pity sake, don't ever fall into the Bush/McCain/Neocon scare trap again.
What were they thinking besides "Anything to win! Anything to win! Anything to win!"?
Did they really think someone wouldn't notice that even at a fictional three in the morning scenerio Hillary was all 'ferputz' in full makeup, business suit and necklace? What? She just came back from a late date?
I don't know about her, but at 3 a.m. I have my jammies on.
The mother, too, is fully clothed in jeans and shirt at 3 a.m. checking in on the kids. The least they could have done would to have been to put 'midnight in Seattle' or even 'sleepless in Seattle' in a little box in one corner.
Think that mom is really thinking about phones ringing in the White House?
No. She's making sure the children still safe in their beds. That no one has crept through an open window and stolen one of them. That she remembered to lock all the doors and windows so no burglars can break into the house. That Junior isn't under the covers reading Playboy. That sister isn't running up the text messaging bill higher than the national debt.
That the kids will have a roof over their heads tomorrow night!
She is not worried about the red phone in the White House. Her problems are far more immediate.
So Clinton campaign, take a breath and a minute to think about what you're doing.
Take that ad the hell off the air and chalk up the expense to temporary insanity.
