Three Really Tasteless Democratic Campaign Ads.

The combination of close polls and unlimited SuperPac dollars pretty much guaranteed we'd see some extra shady campaign ads this year, which is cool because I really like campaign ads. In recent weeks, but sides of the political aisle have ratcheted up the ratcheness. In the interest of fair time (and because I'm lazy today), here's a trio of particularly reviling Democratic attack ads. Cause I'm just fair and balanced like that.

I'm sure some of you are gonna accuse me of false equivalence pandering to the handful of Conservative readers of this site. That's not the case. At all. I just call em' like I see em', and these three ads stood out for their tastelessness. I'd say the same thing if these were ads Republicans were running against Democrats. You know, like I do all the time here. #FairAndBalancedAndWhatnot

Here's the ads.

1) #TeamObama is under attack for an ad that depicts a man who sorta insinuates that Mitt Romney is responsible for his wife's death after he lost his job due to a Bain Capital decision. No need to BS you, this ad is pure trash. The White House's decision to "play it coy" about this one just smacks of the worst kind of election year baloney.

2)'s newest ad features an ominous white hand reaching for people's pockets. Beyond being downright corny, it's just too comical to even be taken seriously.

3) I don't like Allen West. Actually, I strongly dislike Allen West. But this ad is just tacky. I also can't help put notice that all the women getting punched were white. Beyond that little nugget is the obvious question: what the hell does Allen West have to do with boxing?

Question: What do yo think about these ads?!?
