That was really low budget...really low budget.

I know I'll be drinking some CHAMPAGNE when this CAMPAIGN is over.

I love these. How a lifelong resident of NW MO can be a west coast liberal is beyond me.

There was a Mayoral election in my hood recently, and the republican distributed flyers that implied the democrat was a secret agent of the *gasp* ACLU!!!!!! For Mayor. WTF?

Also, I love the clip of the dude with the cowboy hat dancing. Nothing scarier than a black dude with a cowboy hat.

There's one thing scarier than a black dude with a cowboy hat: a white girl with her mullet teased up high with semen grinding her bootie into his junk. Not particularly gay, but very, very, very evil.

Hopefully other republicans will follow suit, and have vaguely disco dance tunes playing in their negative attack ads.

Wow. Screw San Franciscso... I'm moving in with Kay Barnes! Especially if she plays that music at her parties.

Wow...I'm...oh my god. That actually aired? It's like an SNL commercial...

Let's not forget all the militant-gardening vegan queer terrorists who will infiltrate Kay Barnes's parish in order to destroy it from within.

Will this turn out the youth vote?

Why the hell would that smarmy douche back-load the sign off statement? Thats just politics 101 for negative adds.

Wow, that's worse than the naked woman from 2006.

@ 9: There is no youth vote in NW MO. It is all old bitter white people. Poor Kay never stood a chance in that godforsaken district.

Finally! A reason to go to Missouri!

Is our entertainment economy in such desperate straits that actors must stoop to appearing in wingnut cable TV schlock ads??

The mullet bangs are soooo 1980's Jersy. How can they think that looks at all SF?

I donít know about you, but watching this painful ad makes me want to donate to the Kay Barnes Campaign so she can beat that scumbag...

Hey, I grew up in Champaign, IL (and Dan went to college there) and I don't think anyone ever got drunk on it in particular.

It's a nice enough town, but not that nice.

Haha, wow. This was his first ad? America's politics have gone way too far in the direction of the "lesser of the two evils" route. If you don't have anything good to say about yourself...smash your opponent! Fortunately Graves really, really sucks at smashing his opponent. This does seem like a perfect thing for SNL to pick up.
