Via Dave Weigel, who explains why the over-the-top melodrama here might seem … familiar. And no, it’s not because this feels like a trailer for the sequel to “Air Force One.” My favorite part: When Pawlenty punches out Ahmadinejad and fires the Stuxnet torpedoes into the core of Iran’s nuclear plant. Action-packed, Pee Wee!
Seriously, when was the last time there was a gap this large between the excitement of a campaign ad and the excitement of the campaign it’s advertising? (I know, technically it’s for his book, but c’mon.) It’s like watching Dukakis wrestle a bear.
