Yes, this is going to be video-heavy.

These are some of the best (in my opinion!) videos/ads of the 2010 Election.

There are a lot more I could include, but here are a few of the best.

This message features an ill 9/11 first responder, who is also a Navy veteran, talking about Missouri Republican Congressman Roy Blunt and his vote against the 9/11 First Responders health bill.

The veteran in the ad speaks quietly, yet strongly, about how he feels about Republican Roy Blunt’s vote against helping 9/11 First Responders with their medical expenses, while voting himself a Congressional pay raise eight times.  Now forced to breathe with the help of an oxygen tank, the First Responder says that it "makes me sick to my stomach."

Republican Roy Blunt had two chances to support that legislation.  He voted no the first time.  He didn’t even bother to show up to vote the  second time.  Sickening, indeed.

Robin Carnahan for U.S. Senate.

Vote Vets produced this ad.

You may get this message:

Jack Conway for U.S. Senate.

Lauren Valle Head Stomp Victim Speaks Out

Women’s Voices Women Vote Action Fund produced an ad, reminding voters just how bad Extremist Republican Ken Buck is, in his attitude toward women.

Ken Buck allowed his personal, political beliefs to override his duty as a prosecutor in the rape case, and his views on women and choice aren’t just conservative, they’re dangerous.

Michael Bennet for U.S. Senate.

Ken Buck is a tool.

In the midst of the scandal involving the U.S. Chamber’s solicitation of overseas funds comes this news: leaked documents show that Republican Mark Kirk  held what his campaign called a "Beijing Fundraiser."

This ad is from MoveOn. It calls out out the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (who is spending millions for Republican Mark Kirk) on soliciting money from overseas...

Alexi Giannoulias for U.S. Senate.

NBC network affiliate WHO-TV in Des Moines, Iowa Doesn’t Want You to See This Video

Democracy for America has been trying to run an ad about Crazy Republican Chuck Grassley, but they’ve run into a problem with NBC.

This is from an email from Charles Chamberlain, Political Director-Democracy for America:

Now local KCCI news (CBS in Des Moines, Iowa) is reporting that WHO-TV (NBC in Des Moines) is refusing to air the hard-hitting ad.

NBC’s reason? Evidently Senator Grassley’s campaign claims the line "pull the plug on Grandma" was taken out of context even though Grassley made national news — including local news on NBC — when he originally said it.

Bottom line: the Grassley campaign contacted NBC and NBC caved and rejected the ad — the only political ad NBC in Des Moines has refused to run this year.

Roxanne Conlin for U.S. Senate

Diaper Dave.

The biggest Republican Sexual Deviant in the U.S. Senate (that we know of) is David Vitter.

David Vitter is running for RE-election. And sadly, many people are supporting him.

Anytime there’s coverage of this campaign, the one thing people seem to focus on is that David Vitter used the services of a prostitution ring while serving in the United States Senate.

Did I mention that David Vitter is a Republican Sexual Deviant? How come David Vitter wasn't arrested when he was caught using a prostitute?

Many people are still going to vote for Diaper Dave.

How sad is that?

Charlie Melancon for U.S. Senate.

This Tuesday is Election Day, and one factor above all others will determine the outcome: WHO VOTES.

Here’s a short video to remind you of some of the people who will be heading to the polls on November 2.

My diary originally ended with I Remember but there's already a diary on the REC list that spotlights that great video...check it out here.

If you have not voted already, please vote Tuesday.

Every vote counts...just ask Al Franken or Al Gore.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
