Is Christine O’Donnell’s new ad bizarre or brilliant? Is it reminiscent of Richard Nixon’s “I am not a crook” or Ronald Reagan’s Morning in America spot? Jeff explains how this ad is a metaphor for how the Republicans have gone off-track, and why they peaked too soon, and why it would have been better for them to do something, anything, rather than simply be the party of no and rest on the cult of personalities, that as of late have turned sour, weakening their brand. The hosts then launch into a discussion of the difference between campaigns to persuade and campaigns to organize, and how that’s playing into the minimum wage debate. At the 32 minute mark, Glenn and Jeff launch into a spontaneous debate on the constitutionality of the minimum wage, and they close the show at the 49 minute mark with a hilarious discussion of the Fox News story on the Los Angeles Police spending $1 billion on Jet Packs. Sad, but true, Fox News was duped.
