Bad Brad

The NRSC contends Brad Ellsworth, aspiring senator from Indiana, is a rubber stamp:

It’s not a bad attack ad, but I kept waiting for him to inflate and float away. (Carly Fiorina’s really raised the bar for campaign ad CGI. It’s like the Avatar of campaign web videos.)

Bottom line on Ellsworth: He says he wants to be a senator; we’re about to learn just how much, with 60 percent of voters in his state opposing the health-care bill. To paraphrase a line from my March Madness video, “Hoosier Senator? Not this guy if he votes yes!”
