Oh, hey—did you catch the Super Bowl? Yeah, me neither. I still don’t even know who was playing. I was at the grocery store buying chicken thighs and canned diced tomatoes. But I did watch the halftime show! And I watched that two-minute Clint Eastwood spot—the one people are saying is basically a campaign advertisement for Barack Obama? “Halftime in America”? Nominally it was a Chrysler commercial. God, what a bunch of maudlin schlock, right? What was the deal with Clint Eastwood’s voice? If this is what the campaign’s going to be like, I’ll take those pie-in-the-sky proposals for lunar colonies any day. You know what else the campaign could use? Some YouTube videos of cute kids. A humble suggestion, after the jump.
