Campaign Circus: Joe Miller called a 'clown'

(CNN) - As Election Day gets closer, the rhetoric gets more intense, interesting and, shall we say, passionate. Here are some things you might have missed.

Miller? Miller? Miller?

Ben Stein - famous for his role in the '80s movie classic "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and his political/economic commentary - took to the pages of the Alaska Dispatch to blast Tea Party-backed Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller, calling him a "dangerous, stupid clown."

You know you've made it when ...

"Saturday Night Live" parodies you. The latest person to feel the love is New York gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillan, running for the "Rent Is Too Damn High" party. Actor Keenan Thompson gets two gloves up from critics.

Photo of the day: Harry Reid's dance moves

If Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid fails to win re-election, he may have a backup plan: as a contestant on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars."

    Well, when you are starring in a THREE RING CIRCUS, someone has to be the CLOWN!! So if the shoes, nose and outfit FITS – then Wear It!!! And this is a FACT – if you can’t even star on SNL – you suck!!!

    Miller High Life is just that – HIGH on his LIFE and ONLY CARES about what matters to him!! He doesn’t even REMEMBER that SARAH PALIN endorsed him; trying to separate himself from his endorser – who was already a LOSER – in order to make himself WIN – not realizing he's a LOSER too. "Miller High Life" BASHES everyone around him, he's arrogant and he's extreme!!! The VOTERS in AK already figured him out and discovered that he’s a LOSER!!!

    The RepubliCAN’T kicked Murkowski to the curb and when she WINS are they going to EMBRACE her? The RepubliCAN’T Party is a MESS and they are scattered everywhere!!!!!

    This is T’SAH from Virginia and I approve this message!!

    I wouldn't say Joe Miller is "dangerous." The guy is way too dumb to be dangerous...

    Did I hear someone is bringing back the circus? I really enjoyed that last round of circuses, when blago appointed Burris, and the healthcare vote selling, and all of the other fun things that happened this past year. I can hardly wait.

    Ben Stein is a pretty good financial guy. I can't understand why he said this. We need fiscal sanity in Washington. Murkowski and the other guy won't bring that to DC.
