Dale Peterson is just f*cking scary.

The most surprising thing in that article is that "Railroad Commissioner" is an elected position in Texas.

Betcha if Pamela Goreman had done her campaign video in a bikini and shooting an automatic weapon her breast jiggling with every recoil, she woulda won that race in Arizona.

No guts, no glory.

Gravel's "Rock" video just doesn't get old for me.

After watching the Ladybug Witch one I got a phone call from what sounded like a small child said who just "7 days" and hung up.

Anybody have any idea what that was about?

Best campaign sign ever:

I only saw a few of these around the state -- almost all others did not have the gun in it.

Despite its name, the Texas Railroad Commission no longer regulates the railroads; it DOES regulate the oil and gas industry, however, hence the commission has quite a bit of power.

The remix of "I'm Not a Witch, I'm You" that was done by those folks who did the Charlie Sheen "winning" remix was pretty good.

I've never seen the Sam Katz one before, but man is it awesome.

Much more crazy is that Alabama elects the Agricultural Commissioner -- a job that is about inspecting food (and some other stuff). There's no policy involved in it. This is a job where you want the Governor to just appoint the best person for the job.

I was wondering why he was bragging about his oil and gas experience for a railroad position

Wacky campaign ads aren't just an American phenomenon. Simply put, this ad from Winnipeg has the greatest tag-line in the history of advertising tag-lines.

I had not seen that before but that. was. awesome.
 
2012-05-09 01:22:42 PM  
Youtube Sharron Angle's ad that was so horrible it never made TV. It is awesomely bad.

I'm actually getting spam email from that woman concerning "conservative, christian" movies.

Took me a while to figure out why her name was familiar.

Is Christine O'Donnell doing porn yet? Because that witch business was really working for me.

bdub77: Dale Peterson is just f*cking scary.


I remember seeing one of his campaign adds and thinking "Why in the hell is a guy running for an agriculture job carrying a gun?"

Superjew: Is Christine O'Donnell doing porn yet? Because that witch business was really working for me.


I'm thinking maybe a Harry Potter knockoff where she pulls a train under the bleachers at the Quiddich field.

*wait did I think that with my inside voice inside my head or type that aloud?*

Got distracted by the 'I want Republicans in my vagina' ad.

That was worth seeing.
 
2012-05-09 03:34:14 PM  
Who was the guy who had the ad with him chatting up with fake George Jefferson and fake Abe Lincoln, telling them how bad the country's in shape, and fake Lincoln says something really derpy like "gather your armies." Who was that guy?

Am I the only one who found Christine O'Donnel's "I'm not a Witch" ad inexplicably hot? Because for some reason that ad makes me want to rail her hard. Not sure why though. She's not bad, but Idon't find her overly attractive in other cirsumstances...
 
2012-05-09 03:49:10 PM  
Mike Gravel is farking awesome.
