Going for Broke While Morally and Politically Bankrupt

Most people who have followed -- or at least read about -- modern presidential politics will recall the famous ad run by Lyndon Baines Johnson against Barry Goldwater in 1964. The ad features a young girl playing in a field of flowers before a mushroom cloud begins to rise. Since that time, it has become more or less universally accepted that the commercial represents the worst in over-the-top political fearmongering.

This advertisement by Hillary Clinton is not as bad as that, though it does take a walk in that direction. That it was run against a fellow Democrat is rather remarkable.

She's right; she does have the experience. After all, didn't she run the country for eight years while her husband played with cigars and aspirin factories?
