One day to go, and we must admit it's a real pity we don't get to see the attack ads from each candidate running on our TV.

There's little need to try and paint your opponent as "the biggest celebrity on the planet" alongside footage of Paris and Britney, when you can just as well imply they're IN LEAGUE WITH THE NAZIS.
