Early voting: The wrong question

I first saw this pathetic attack ad by our friends at the Harris County GOP a couple of days ago, but I didn't bother blogging about it because life is too short to deal with stupid stuff like that. But now that Matt Stiles has picked it up, I figure I should at least say something. And what I'll say is this: Stiles is asking the wrong question. It's not whether this ad is "over the top", but whether it's the dumbest, most amateurish, cringe-worthy political ad you've ever seen. I still think that honor goes to the legendary "Ellen Cohen is a Canadian!" ad, but this one is in the ballpark.

I mean honestly, I'd rank "Was Jared Woodfill stoned when he approved this, or just drunk?" ahead of the "is it over the top?" question. Is this really the best they can do?

Not that it really matters. Because this is the best that we can do, and that says a heck of a lot:

It's no contest.

Nah, the worst ads ever were the SS-G "Vote twice for Shelley" ads. Followed closely by the "Ba-Babara Ann" ads by Radnofsky.

The "Democrats are coming!" ad is in a fight for third with the Cohen/Canadian ads.

Crap political advertisements are bi-partisan.
