(The Daily Beast)   Seven of the worst political ads you will never unsee. Includes the unforgettable, "I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm, so when I get to Washington, I'll know how to cut pork." The ad then cuts to footage of a pig squealing   (thedailybeast.com) divider line 36

I assume that there are demonic wolves represented among the winners.

Only 7?

99% of the ads these days should be on that list.

The ad with the "cut pork" was shown on Jon Stewart a few weeks ago, I think - it was disturbing. Especially since she was talking about castrating things - But I agree that many ads should be part of that list nowadays...

Going to be hard for her to cut pork in DC. Doesn't she know that Barack Hussein Obama is a muslim? He doesn't touch pork, so he's had it all removed from DC to avoid encountering it. Shows what an Iowa farm-hand knows...

Waitaminute - cutting pork?!? Isn't that what Shariah Law would have us do, right after a socialist gay-marries all the Common Cores?

I know, the article's for 2014, but I will never forget that we once had a major party candidate for the Senate go on T.V. to deny being a witch.

I guess she means "pork that doesn't go to Iowa" ...

Actually, testicular politics is simple pragmatism. Both the Left and Right testicles are bipartisan when they pursue common goals, like sperm production.

We can all learn much from testicles, if only we'd listen.

It's equally disturbing that the entire pitch of the ad is basically "Vote for me, because I'm a rube."

HOLY SHIAT, please tell me that's just some sort of subversive self-referential parody and not a REAL official Tim Donnelly campaign ad.

This guy is the best that the California GOP has to offer against Jerry Brown?

Lulz.

redalertpolitics.com I like how this guy goes right past the guns and hauls out a got damn cannon!

My favorite is his summary of the Revolutionary War:   The congressional hopeful touts himself as the "only licensed firearms dealer in America running for Congress" and reminisces about the very cannons his forefathers used to "fight the British in Savannah and win us a Constitution."

Congratulations on winning.  Here's your Constitution.

These are the same folks that whine and whine about Boxer and Feinstein but have a hard time producing a candidate that can even challenge them.

I don't love either of them (Mrs. Feinstein is a little to anti-gun for me), but the damned right has yet to produce an opposition candidate worth voting for.

Joni is a clueless doofus with an ALEC agenda and frequent absences from her job as state senator

what do you expect from Red Oak? I guess I expected better.

I guarantee that there will be at least one ad this year that has an animal pissing or shiatting on a bound stack of  papers labeled Obamacare.  And I'm probably 75% that there will be one with a guy shooting a target and the target will come back with the holes reading:

FU
BO

Now if a candidate himself releases an ad where he pisses and shiats on Obamacare (or uses Obamacare for toiletpaper) I will be just a little bit shocked.  They'll save that theme for Hillary Clinton using Benghazi memos to wrap her bloody tampon.

This lady is even derpier than witch girl and Michelle Obama.  It's hard to find an article that does her justice but she's like a lifetime achievement award in derp.

Not to mention the Siege of Savannah was a clusterfark that resulted in the death of Casimir Pulaski. The only good part was the Haitian troops who participated in the battle then later went on to fight Napoleon. 

/We got a really neat fort named after him though.
//It got shelled to shiat in the Civil War though.
