Via Marc Ambinder, a cheap shot off a poor choice of words but funny and thus redeemed. The occasion is the announcement of the nine finalists in Team Romney’s “create your own ad” campaign. They’re all fine, but viewed in sequence they point up just how limited stylistically political spots are (the ad about Mitt’s Olympics leadership is the notable exception). A few shots of the candidate looking commanding and sympathetic, a few stirring soundbites, and most importantly a canny choice of music and you’ve got yourself a spot that could run anywhere with no one thinking twice. Compare them to Hillary’s health-care ad in Iowa. How much did she pay for what Mitt got for free?
