Silky Corn Soup

Allah linked John Edwards’ cinematic campaign ad yesterday, but I hadn’t looked closely enough to catch this sniggeringly snigger-ful moment when Edwards responds to a voter’s question about his readiness for the job. (Hat tip – Ray Robison).

Asked the voter/actor/plant/whatever: “You’re going to have to be Wyatt Earp. Are you up to it?”

Here’s the screenshot of Edwards’ reaction:


Now, watch the full ad:

Mix the effete Wyatt Earp imitation with the smarmy voiceover, the maudlin orchestral background music, and Edwards’ indelible smirk, and you’ve got a killer recipe for Silky Corn Soup.

A commenter at Edwards’ YouTube channel writes:

“I think I threw up in my mouth a little bit.”
