Dan Fanelli's Ridiculous Political Ad
Dan Fanelli is running for congress in Florida. His strategy for gaining votes is one for the books. Instead of telling voters of his qualities that make him a leader or even really attacking his opponent (he does call him a "bum" ... oh, snap.), Danny Boy showed his main quality is being able to show you what terrorists look like in a Die Hard sequel.

Danny's main skill is that of racial profiling and being able to spot a terrorist that has a bomb already strapped to his chest. It's like Jack Bauer going to congress.

What I find amazing is this spot what conceived, written, cast and shot without one campaign member saying, "Sir, not only is this offensive, it's bordering on a combo of an SNL skit and Looney Tunes cartoon."



For crying out loud...

I like the fact that Jon Stewart and the rest of The Daily Show called him out on the last comment of a bald man flying a plane into a building:

Hey Johnny, how much do you want to bet he gets elected? These guys aren't as stupid as they appear in their ads. Why talk policy and lose when you can talk insanity and win?

Too true Marion. He's playing into the voters in his district by featuring an old, albeit quasi-pedophilic, man representing a "real" American. Personally, I think I'd rather have the "terrorist." At least he won't offer me Werthers Candies and try to cop a feel of my ding dong when I get up to use the bathroom.

That's a great sentence Marion.
