Since it is Friday I thought I would bring you some comic relief. Comedian Steve Martin has made one of the most bizarre campaign web ads this cycle for Nebraska Democratic candidate for Senate Bob Kerrey.

The ad is unusual enough I suspect a decent number of people will end up watching it, but I can’t imagine it really moving voters in Nebraska.

Of course that might even be the point. Kerrey is trailing so badly in the polling, he has basically been left for dead by many Democratic-leaning organizations. The ad may simply serve to remind national Democrats that they actually have a Senate candidate running in Nebraska this year.
