Last week, I published an article about rethinking truth in advertising laws as political advertisements are not held to the same truth in advertising laws as commercial entities. Slightly related, is the continual downhill slide of political advertising to the absurd. The newest political advertising pushing the limits is from Pamela Gorman [R-AZ], who is running to replace outgoing Republican Representative John Shadegg.
In the video, Gorman is shown to be shooting (not figuratively) taxes down with both a handgun and a machine gun. This is what political advertising has come to:
A repeat offender, Rick Barber [R-AL], who is running for the House in Alabama released another campaign video featuring historic American figures. The newest advertisement features Abraham Lincoln, telling Barber what slavery is. Barber goes on to argue that Democrats are making slaves of everyone. “Fight for freedom, so we can have morning in America again,” Barber says before signing off.
