Oh, great. Now who’ll stop the nukes?

Yesterday, my home state of Alabama was an exciting battleground for Democrats and Republicans alike. But looking back, it’s hard to believe that Huckabee and McCain didn’t get a better run for their money from this guy. Alabama native Hugh Cort bought up some local TV time for the spot above, in which he explains how he’s the only “counterterrorism expert” who can stop Osama bin Laden’s “American Hiroshima plan to blow up 10 cities with nuclear devices.” Kinda makes Tom Tancredo seem like a wuss for only promising to protect our shopping malls. Sadly, Cort pulled in a disappointing 0% of the vote, so it looks like we’re all doomed.
