    As a theater person yourself, you’ll appreciate this–I was chatting with an old friend who is now a theater professor, and we’re thinking about collaborating on a paper on horror-movie motifs in political advertising! (Don’t forget that anti-gay-marriage “Gathering Storm” ad, too–and for that matter, Hillary Clinton’s “3 am phone call.”)
