    I'm calling this one a joke

    It is not just that the ads are so well done (see LonelyGirl16), but a paraplegic principle as a recurring character in both ads puts it over the top for me.

    Saying that, it is entirely plausible, which that alone makes me uneasy.

    AOL's video site has a set of online campaign ads, not for the 08 Pres. bid, but for a 7th grade student body president gig. One of the candidates is Dakota Fanning.

    What makes the campaign ads noteworthy are the Rovian tactics employed by the boy. Fanning's ads are straight out of The Brady Bunch (which is pretty cute), but, again, the recurring character of the principle interjects some really dark humor.

    A Google-look indicates homeschooling, but then again, who can you trust?

    Would you like me to read this to you? Listen
