A nice "bitter clinger" riff by Tom Tancredo's ad team -- highlighting Democrat John Hickenlooper's recent gaffe while tying him to President Obama in one fell swoop:



This race is somewhat under the radar, but it's one of the most bizarre and stunning contests in the country.  In the span of six weeks, the Republican nominee became (statistically) the least popular politician in the entire country, yet the Democrat has tanked thanks to a red hot, out-of-nowhere third party run by an old face.  If Tancredo mystifies the chattering class and wins, it would rank among the top political upsets of all time.  This is the stuff of which political junkies' dreams are made.
