Isn't Adam Sandler Jewish? They should get him to make a commercial!

My favorite political ad this year. Honest, sincere, smart, and...still funny. "I'm voting for hope; I'm voting for That One."

Awesome. Great commercial. Hey, did you know Milton Berle was Jewish? Red Skelton, too! Who knew? I'm from central Indiana. We didn't have Jews there. Steve Lawrence! Eydie Gorme!

Oh, and Carl Reiner is a hoot and a half. And he's 86!

I love the end. A great jab at McCain.

I'm voting for "That One".

Who could resist Rhoda Morgenstern?!

I really like this commercial, except...well, here: Sarah Palin is a woman, not a girl. She is a liar, a cheater, hateful, despicable, and perhaps stupid, but she is not a child.

Brilliant. I'm with you @3.

I'd like to see an ad geared toward the old where-do-you-summer Episcopals. Because I'm selfish like that.

But this was good.

@ 7, this is an ad targeting elderly Jews. Anyone under 60 is still just a kid.
