Yesterday AP wrote up the cringe-tastic verbal gymnastics performed by Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes in order to avoid admitting that she voted twice for Barack Obama — whose approval rating among Kentucky’s likely voters is upside-down by 24 points.  He was kind enough to include a thought I posted to Twitter after watching the video:

Her evasive rambling really could make for a devastating ad unto itself, it seemed to me; no bells and whistles necessary.  So without further ado, here’s what we came up with in the Townhall offices:
