Ladd goes there, and gets his L. Frank Baum on:

Give us John Dennis, CA-8!


  • CGHill

    Who knew water had such a profound effect on Botox?

  • Rob

    Over the top but good. I think that will have a very good effect.

  • Formerly known as Skeptic

    Personally, I like his “Obligatory McCain-Feingold-incumbent-protection-mandated message” line at the end.

  • Estragon

    Love the script.

    One minor quibble with casting – they couldn’t find an older and uglier witch to play Pelosi? This gal is about 30 years too young and way too comely to pass off as Nan – although she does give a good try with her expression to portray the 47 face-lifts. Not quite Nicholson turning into a wolf, but good. She captures the look of permanent surprise nicely.

  • Rob

    Lol, very true…I was wondering who she was for a second or two.

    I think if John Dennis takes her seat it will be like winning the Triple Crown of the MLB. Very very rare since neither won has been done for 50 years!

  • Rob

    I’m tired…

  • S.P.Q.R.

    You guys are too kinky, even for me.

  • Joe

    Funny. He put a lot of effort into that ad. I can’t see San Fran Nan losing.

    Having taken my daughter to Wicked, where the Wicked Witch is actually the good character snd the “good witch” Glenda is a bit more ambiguous, I am ruined on traditional Wizard of Oz versions of right and wrong.

    However, there is no doubt that Pelosi is wrong. And her challenger, John Dennis, is right.

    Watched it again just now.. the Scarecrow looks like Rob Schneider of SNL fame.. (The “Making Copies” guy and Deuce Bigalow)
