Best, Worst, and Most Memorable Campaign Ads of 2008
Huffington Post has put together the best, worst, and most memorable Campaign Ads of 2008.
It is tradition in every campaign for each side to denounce the other as having run the sleaziest race in modern political history. And certainly it seems like every day brings with it a new attack ad deemed "the worst one yet."
While historians are generally skittish when it comes to such claims -- pointing out that past years witnessed some serious mudslinging of their own -- it is hard to dismiss just how dirty and/or memorable some of the attack ads have been this election cycle.
Many times it is an outside group hurling the sludge. On several occasions the notably nasty or remarkable stuff is aired during a Congressional race. Often the charges reek of sexism, racism, and ageism. Almost always they distort records or cross ethical lines. But sometimes, they are just stupid, funny, or dramatic.
Either way, for the political masochists among us, here is a compendium of the best, worst, and most memorable hits of the 2008 election cycle.
