    Activist Vows Graphic Anti-Abortion Ads During Super Bowl

    Veteran anti-abortion activist Randall Terry says he's mounting a Democratic primary challenge to President Obama in 2012, in part to be able to run graphic TV ads showing aborted fetuses during next year's Super Bowl.
    Here's the clincher. He is going to be running as a Democrat. Who would have ever thunk it? LOL.

    So what is the controversy? He is free to run such ads if he likes, and can afford them.

    You do not ruin the greatest that is the Super Bowl ads with a political ad. It is just wrong.

    Maybe they will sandwich it between a Doritos commercial and one for Bud Light!

    I doubt he will succeed. Far too many powerful people have an interest in stopping Terry. Hopefully the money talks system we live in will do something useful for once.

    Well, if it is graphic enough, it may make me look differently at my chips and dip.

    According to the article, his goal is to run ads. The only reason he's running for president is that campaign ads cannot be censored, and stations must air them regardless of content.

    If he has announced his intent solely to run to embarass the president or give him a platform to air his ads, then it is likely he has already given the networks and the court enough evidence to deny him airtime.
