Spoof Ad: Bruce Springsteen, Obama Bad for Pennsylvania

This is deliciously ironic humor directed against the laughable Hillary Clinton. The video takes the form of an imaginary ad for the Clinton campaign. Thanks to TalkLeft for the video. Although, it was produced by Slate:

More on ABC's Pro-Hillary Debategate Scandal

ABC news and Charlie Gibson were essentially dismissive last night of their highly controversial performance during Wednesday's debate. Nevertheless, the damage was done not only to journalistic integrity, but Barack Obama. This from CNN's Situation Room:

OBAMA: Forty-five minutes before we heard about health care, 45 minutes before we heard about Iraq, 45 minutes before we heard about jobs, 45 minutes before we heard about gas prices. Now, I don't blame Washington for this because that's just how Washington is. They like stirring up controversy and they like playing "got you games" getting us to attack each other. And I have to say, Senator Clinton, you know, looked in her element.



BLITZER: All right, Jack, what do you think?

Does he have a point?

CAFFERTY: Well, yes he does, except for this. More than 10 million people watched that debate last night. I think it won its time period in the ratings. All the print critics -- Shales and the rest of them -- trashed it pretty good. And he makes valid point. They spent the first 45 minutes rehashing old ground and -- but one of the things we got out of that first 45 minutes that I thought was interesting was when George Stephanopoulos, the former press secretary for President Clinton -- what kind of objectivity is ABC News showing having him moderate the debate?

But when he pinned Hillary Clinton down and said, is Barack Obama electable, can he beat McCain? And she said yes, because all the reports I've read is that she's been saying that he can't win privately. And he got her to acknowledge that, yes, he probably can. So that was a good moment.

But the rest of that first half hour, 40 minutes, was pretty lame.
