Funniest Political Ad This American Election Season
Well, of course it's great that these girls like their dads enough to endorse him, but really, given their rather obvious bias, it's hardly convincing for rational voters not closely related to the candidate in question.
But at least one of these "daughter thinks her dad would be a great senator"-ads was made really funny. Namely this ad from Michigan Republican Senatorial candidate Michael Bouchard. Saying it was "the best political ad" ever, as the poster of the ad to YouTube did, is a bit of an exaggeration. After all, the purpose of a political ad is to turn things around for the advertising politician, and Mike Bouchard is trailing badly in the polls. So, while the ad may perhaps have helped, it clearly have had a very limited effect.
But in terms of funniness, it is definetly the funniest one that I have seen, at least this election season. I really like the looks on the faces of his poor daughter Mikayla and her date when Mike says "Isn't this fun"?
