Hillary!™’s campaign is running a new TV ad against Obama. It’s brilliant, to the point, and insanely stupid all at once:

ABC News’ David Wright, Sunlen Miller, Andy Fies & Nitya Venkataraman Report: Closing in on the March 4 contests, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., debuted a campaign ad on Friday with ominous undertones.

“It’s 3:00am and your children are asleep,” a voice over says in the ad. “There’s a phone in the White House, and it’s ringing. Something is happening in the world. Your vote will decide who answers that call.”

“Whether someone knows the world’s leaders, knows the military, someone tested and ready to lead. It’s 3am and your children are safe and asleep. Who do you want answering the phone?” the ad concludes.

It’s brilliant, because you really should be thinking in such terms.

It’s intensely stupid because, honestly, does Hillary!™ really want us to imagine whether we want her as President in a serious, life-or-death scenario? Is that truly her strength and appeal? Seems as likely to blow up in her face as to hurt Barry.

  1. Who do you want answering the phone?

    Out of the three liberals most likely to end up in the White House, McCain. You know, the one that “knows the military.”

    You do have to wonder about that ad….
