A US Political Ad That Appeals to Sane People?

This will never work.  Not in the past decade, nor probably in this one.  Americans seem to have far too much fun ranting illogically.  Still, together with the Pulitzer-winning PolitiFact (which brilliantly and responsibly concentrates its efforts in the regions richest in easy pickings:  Washington, Texas and Florida) perhaps it's an early sign of better things to come.  Perhaps even a safe place to send our puzzled and concerned foreign friends when they insist on gently laying the backs of their hands to our foreheads to check for fever or contagious rising national idiocy.
