Here are a couple I see frequently in Alabama.

The first one truly bothers me...

Really? I can't believe one would use the fact that someone believes in evolution as a negative thing. Sad thing is Bryne came out and said that it is not true and he believes everything in the bible is true :doh.

YouTube - Dale Peterson for Ag Commish: Quite possibly the best political ad ever.

This one isn't outrageous as in stepping on peoples toes but it is just plane nutty, Why must he bring out the rifle?

Bah. These politicians are mere girly-men and limp-wristed liberal pansies. Their Right-Wing Kung-fu is weak. I laugh at their alleged extremism, muwahahahaha. :mrgreen:

GAH! History fail! The colonists did NOT revolt over a TEA TAX!

Aside from the whole "lets revolt" thing, spooky
I was interested in him telling us that the IRS can levy new taxes without representation. The revolt thing was spooky, but I think just poorly worded. And yes, my actual first thought watching it was the fact that it was not a revolt over a tea tax. Our founding fathers where not quite so petty.

Isn't it kind of scary how these guys manage to get so close to being elected.

Actually...erm...they...kinda were. The tea tax that caused the Boston Tea Party actually pushed DOWN the cost of tea in the colonies.

I'm so thankful that the ad campaign culture in Canada is still very low key compared to some of the stuff I've seen come out of the U.S. It's bound to change though, I am almost sure.

Our founding fathers wouldn't stand for this taxation without representation!
Vote for me, and I'll stop it!
I was also wondering... how does one spy on oneself?

Judging by the guy in the commercial who was talking to people who have been dead for two hundred years, I'd say paranoid schizophrenia.
