Larry David on Hillary Clinton's 3 a.m. campaign ad: "Does anyone want this nut answering the phone?"

Larry David has written an amazing commentary on The Huffington Post about the negative ad that Hillary Clinton effectively used to scare old white people in Ohio last Tuesday. L.D. has many spot on observations, including...
How is it that she became the one who's perceived as more equipped to answer that 3 a.m. call than the unflappable Obama? He, with the ice in his veins, who doesn't panic when he's losing or get too giddy when he's winning, who's as comfortable in his own skin as she's uncomfortable in hers. There have been times in this campaign when she seemed so unhinged that I worried she'd actually kill herself if she lost.
The whole post reads like it would be an exceptional commentary segment on The Daily Show or Weekend Update.

To refresh, here is that Clinton spot, pulled straight from the Carl Rove handbook.

Although I prefer Larry David's suggestion on how to counter, I think Obama is classy and effective with his response video.
