Her Refusal to Recognize the Primary’s Verdict Is a Royal Pain


This is a pretty funny ad, telling the fairy tale of King Frank and Princess Lisa of Alaska:

I’m not quite panicked about that CNN poll showing Murkowski barely behind, at least not yet. Although the poll did the right thing, telling respondents that Murkowski is a write-in candidate, I think it’s easier to tell a pollster you’ll write in a name than to actually do it. Rasmussen had Murkowski behind by a healthy margin, 42 percent to 27 percent. As long as Joe Miller hustles, he should be in okay shape.

But getting this Shrek-like ad on the air wouldn’t hurt, either.
