    The fact it is real makes it completely stupid. Like it was just a terrible video.

    I hope to whatever god cares about American politics that we aren't so stupid that ads like this are effective, but I have no such faith in the American people.

    Ads like this are why I don't believe in free speech and don't believe in allowing politicians to hide behind anonymous committees.

    Actually - it's not a real campaign video.

    It's says "Paid for my Turn Right USA . . . Definitely NOT authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee . . . so suck it McCain-Feingold"



    So - no candidate came up with this, it's not endorse by any party - rather, it's endorsed by a superpac . . .which just donates money around. . . at their website this is their 'mission' statement:

    Mission

    Turn Right USA is a Federal Non-connected, Expenditure Only Political Action Committee (SuperPAC) organized to execute Independent Expenditure campaigns by a group of American citizens who are:
    1.unrepresented by the political class of this Country;
    2.nauseated by the laughable stupidity of professional politicians;
    3.outraged by their liberal benefactors like George Soros, and
    4.angered that their opposition is too cowardly to fight back!

    Turn Right USA’s mission is to expose and lampoon the typical politico’s microscopic brain through cutting-edge viral videos with guts and humor!
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Taken from their website:
    Turn Right USA is a Federal Non-connected, Expenditure Only Political Action Committee (SuperPAC) organized to execute Independent Expenditure campaigns by a group of American citizens who are:
    unrepresented by the political class of this Country;
    nauseated by the laughable stupidity of professional politicians;
    outraged by their liberal benefactors like George Soros, and
    angered that their opposition is too cowardly to fight back!
    Turn Right USA’s mission is to expose and lampoon the typical politico’s microscopic brain through cutting-edge viral videos with guts and humor!

    Edit: So basically it is about as honorable as anything that Move-On does...at least they dont depict her with a Hitler mustache. Her opponent has denounced the ad. The question is does it tell the truth in all its offensive glory?

    Kinda catchy.

    I would say the real losers are the people who donate to this SuperPAC. Talk about throwing money down a hole.

    I use the term "campaign video" to refer to a video that campaigns for or against a candidate. By that definition, it is a campaign video. By "real" I meant that it was not done as a joke.

    Its a Citizens United world now, you can pander to your base without being accused of pandering to yoir base!

    Maybe we should just get it over with and elect a corporation to rule us. They're people now, right.

    It's just really really stupid. I'm not offended by it, but it's just stupid, and hurts the people putting it out, more then the person they are attacking.
