Quite Possibly The Worst Presidential Campaign Ad Of All Time.

In the annals of political advertisement, we've seen some truly odd campaign commercials. While some candidates stick with basic themes of generic Americana, others push the envelope and go for shock factor. We've seen opposition to affirmative action expressed via a pair of white hands, weird red eyed sheep, scary black inmates used to decry opponents as weak on crime, demonic sheep, Hollywood blockbuster-style theatrics to liven up plan vanilla candidates, and just plain ole' f*ckery.

This ad, courtesy of The Campaign To Elect Daddy Green, just might be the weirdest thing I've ever seen. Period.

What is this? A ploy to "Real Americans"? An appeal to folks who smoke, crack fiendishly, outside office buildings in the dead of winter? An ad for Crest White Strips™? Foreshadowing an upcoming subject on How To Catch A Predator? And what's up with Cain's protracted sh*t-eating grin at the end?

Uh, seriously HERB, WTF?!?

Question: What was that?!?
