    This was the moment that I knew that, whether or not Obama would eventually destroy Mitt (and he did, first debate performance notwithstanding), he was going to bring his best, most pugilistic game.

    Among other things, it brilliantly enjoins us to feel both moral and musicological revulsion: In the same way that he can't quite pull off that leap of a major sixth -- "A---MEIRUI*&$#--ri-ca, A-meee-ri-ca..." -- we know that there's something a little... askew about Romney's moral compass, his sense of fair play.

    The ad cuts Romney off in mid-phrase, as if to say, "I'm done with this putz." It was, for me, the most horrifically satisfying moment in the entire campaign.

      This was the most devastating d on a visceral level. The audio engineering is brilliant. The cut to the other countries where he hides his money when he hits "America, America."  The echo when the abandoned factory comes up.

      The name of this ad is "Firms." I would embed, but can't from the iPad.
