Watch a Virginia Democrat Crush an Ambulance to Make a Point About Republicans and Affordable Healthcare
Released today on YouTube, the ad is, of course, perfectly timed (see "House Passes Measure to Repeal and Replace the Affordable Care Act," via The New York Times). It's basically the hyperpopular Hydraulic Press Channel writ large -- with the added dramatic tension of wondering, as you're watching, if a piece of the ambulance getting destroyed will fly out of the crusher and hit Perriello, necessitating another ambulance.
