Best Video of the Campaign Award

Here, on election day, I offer my nomination for Best Video of the Campaign.

I know, I know, the competition is stiff. There are thousands of possible winners, videos produced by the campaigns, by the parties, by professional film makers, by ad agencies, by students, by... terrorists. Yes, even by terrorists.

Nevertheless, I believe there is a clear winner. Surprisingly enough, it is made by the McCain-Palin campaign.

In a campaign that seemed to go on forever. Everything that was possible to say got said, and said, and said again, with videos employing facts, lies, truth, humor, insults, hyperbole, straight talk, double speak, new ideas and old ideas.

But in the end, the McCain-Palin campaign took the most radical move of all, and made a video that simply proclaimed, without fanfare or extrapolation, that they were simply out of ideas. Brilliant.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages, I give you the Best Video of the Campaign.
