The new ad from Sharron Angle in the Nevada Senate race uses some really amazing metaphors and imagery -- namely involving a love triangle between Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), President Obama and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

"It may be the most tragic love story of our time. Pelosi, Obama -- and Harry Reid," the announcer says. "Together, they promised to change America. And boy, did they: Taxpayer funded bailouts for Wall Street, a $787 billion stimulus that failed, and spending so reckless, it's led to record deficits and skyrocketing unemployment. They say you can't buy love. But we've certainly paid a heavy price."
The ad's official title is "Love Triangle." It's not really very subtle about what it's implying in the viewer's imagination, with the images of Reid hugging Obama and kissing Pelosi on the cheek.
The TPM Poll Average currently puts Reid ahead of Angle by 46.4%-43.8%.
Late Update: Reid campaign spokesman Kelly Steele put out this statement in response: "The most tragic love triangle of our time is Sharron Angle's unwavering commitment to the trinity of eliminating Social Security and Medicare, abolishing the Department of Education and the Millennium Scholarship for Nevada's students, and kicking out-of-work Nevadans off unemployment because they're 'spoiled' by their benefits. Most hypocritically, Angle has said repeatedly she would not fight for the jobs of struggling Nevadans as a US Senator and would overturn Wall Street reform passed by Sen. Reid to prevent anything like the current economic and housing crises from happening in the future."
