This week’s worst political ads come to us in a set from Alabama, from one of the angriest teabaggers ever to spit out a sentence. Here’s the first one, which Republican Rick Barber put out last month, for the set up:
And here’s this week’s worst political ad. It’s the “extended web version” of an earlier recording, with added singing and some other weirdness. Happily, it appears that he’s wearing that awesome shirt again, though looks like it’s been through the wash a few times in the latest version. Watch for the subtle flashes of guns and bibles, and the moment around 1:14 when the camera almost accidentally falls on a black man, then quickly cuts away. Close call.
An update from a previous Worst Political Ad of the Week winner: Douchebag Ben Quayle has won the AZ primary and is now the AZ GOP candidate for house. Arizonans, we can sympathize with the shame you must feel.
Our current candidate keeps getting trashed and embarrassing America, with his history of getting blitzed in Kazakhstan and falling off horses — then there was the time last year when he let a Republican buddy drive a boat drunk up onto a rocky shore, and ran up an estimated $1.5 million tab for health care and work comp claims for the injuries to him and his staff. Then he sued firefighters after some scrub brush in his Ranch Estates LLC subdivision burned. (We have no confirmation on whether or not he was drunk at the time.)
