It's 3 a.m. Has anyone checked on the kids'...endorsements?

Saturday Night Live put together a funny (albeit a little too lengthy) skit about the Hilary Clinton "3 a.m." ad:

But lending more proof to the theory that reality is funner than fiction, the sleeping girl in the original "3 a.m." ad, it seems, is an Obama supporter. As
AdFreak reports:

To be fair, the stock footage in the ad was shot nine years ago, when Casey Knowles was 8 years old. (The Clinton campaign bought the footage from Getty Images.) But Knowles, now 17, has been campaigning for Obama, and denounces the “3 a.m.” spot as an exercise in “fear-mongering.” The Obama camp has been in touch with Knowles, and they’ve been having a laugh or two. “I mentioned that we should make a counter ad, me and Obama, against Hillary,” she says. “They thought that was really funny. They actually might take me up on it.”
Ah, the perils of using stock photography. But it could be worse for the Clinton camp: at least they're not being sued by an angry poultry farmer.
