Since we are witnessing one of the more ridiculous political campaigns featuring one of the more ridiculous politicians, I figured I'd recount my favorite ridiculous political ad. Feel free to list yours!  

For those old enough to remember when MTV still played music and had decent TV shows, yet young enough to have actually watched it, I present to you a skit from The State.  I'd have given anything to post the video, but copyright infringement has foiled us all yet again.  Hopefully the transcript will bring joy to those that remember the show.

(voiceover)
Senator Martin Cavanaugh thinks automatic rifles should be available to pre-pubescent girls with epileptic conditions.

Arnold Brown Doesn’t.

Senator Cavanaugh voted for rabid pit bulls to be doused in gas and set loose in this city’s Alzheimer wards.

Arnold Brown voted against it.

Senator Cavanaugh thinks breathing out his back, and changing his name to Sir Jaervy Barzenblatz would be the best way to cure marsupials of their pouches.

Arnold Brown doesn’t waste his time with such nonsense....but he does use a colostomy bag.

Senator Martin Cavanaugh. A complete lunatic, but at least he doesn’t crap through his stomach into a bag.

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.
