Christine O'Donnell 'I'm You' Ad Parodied, Winningly (VIDEO)

While most of the rest of the nation's elite campaigners have reliably gotten down into the intellectual gutter this campaign season, you really have to give credit to Christine O'Donnell in Delaware for transforming that Senate race into a high-concept campaign for the nature and meaning of the self. (She really won her primary on the same night, with the backing of the same political coalition, as porn-emailing, NY Post-brawling Carl Paladino? What a world, right?)

As you know, O'Donnell has gone all out to suggest that "she" is "you," and by extension "me" and "us" are "her" and "we" are "one" with "each other," and, yes, I'm starting to see precisely how she means to defeat onanism in our time! Chris Coons responded by saying that "he," and by extension "us," are not "her." The whole thing sort of makes me want indie-guitar virtuoso Marnie Stern to jump into the Delaware race on the "This Is It and I Am It and You Are It and So Is That and He Is It and She Is It and It Is It and That Is That" platform. But as things stand, Delaware has already become what Alex Balk calls "the most ontological race in the nation."

And with that in mind, I think this (slightly NSFW) video parody from the Destructor Bros. is pretty pitch-perfect.
