The campaign ad we'd like to see

Larry Flynt calls Dennis Kucinich "essential, viable and exciting."

So Mike Huckabee's people have come up with a funny TV spot based on the endorsement he's gotten from Chuck Norris?

Not bad.

But if some political production company or amateur YouTubologist out there really wants to impress us, how about a ready-for-the-family hour ad for Dennis Kucinich touting the endorsement he's gotten from Larry Flynt?

The adult entertainment impresario, who co-hosted a campaign event for Kucinich Friday night, tells -- as you might expect, it's not a link you'll want to click at work -- that Kucinich offers "an essential, viable and exciting option to the candidates that are more popular at the moment."

In more wholesome news, the John Edwards campaign has just sent around a new fundraising pitch, this one from the candidate's mother, Bobbie: You make a contribution, and they'll send you five Thanksgiving recipes, including Elizabeth Edwards' bread pudding and Bobbie's own "special recipe for one of John's favorites, Mac 'n' Cheese!"
