    Now excuse me while I go create an ad showing a vice presidential nominee murdering a struggling handicapped elderly woman.

That was my issue, not whether or not the ad was in good taste. (of which I suggested it was not)
    The thread topic isn't leadership in Washington; it's the use of inappropriate content in the ad. Posts that don't address that issue aren't topical. Not sure why anyone would try to make that out to be a strawman.
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.

    Yes he was, but don't ever expect a hard leftist to admit that.

    That footage didn't win the Democrats control of the White House. Sarah Palin did.

    Which is exactly what the Democrats did to the Republican candidates in 2004, 2006, and 2008.

    I saw ads here in NH actually trying to tie first time candidates to Bush.

    That ad really doesn't tell me that Weh would be any different. Just posting your opponent in a bad light doesn't really say anything good about yourself. Even a quick look at his website doesn't even show anything more than the usual rhetoric. That's the thing that bothers me most about politicians on both sides, the bull**** vague promises of something better. Atleast he served our country which is more than most of the current senators can say.
