President Palin Is Danny Elfmann's "Greatest Fear"

Famous Hollywod composer Danny Elfmann has worked on a lot of creepy movies (most of them by Tim Burton). But in a new ad produced for the last week of the presidential election, he reveals his greatest fear: a President Palin.

"These are troubled times in a volatile world. With unprecedented crises at home and abroad, we need sound judgment and a steady hand to lead the most powerful nation on Earth," the ad begins, echoing some of the gravitas-laden ads targeting Barack Obama's inexperience. But Elfmann's ad takes a twist: "John McCain's age and continuing battle with cancer makes the liklihood of him not completing his term higher than any president in American history. President Sarah Palin. Think about it."
