Today’s fun video: That was the campaigns that were

It’s been a long road to election day, and there have been some ground breaking and mind boggling videos.

One site rates the top 13 videos of the political season, from Jimmy McMillan’s “The Rent is Too Damn High” speech to Christine O’Donnell’s “I’m not a witch, I’m you” commercial to a wolf in sheep’s clothing in California. None of them are from Washington or Idaho, although a few of them have shown up on local blogs. To see the best/worst videos, click here.
