Did Kurt Bills just release the worst campaign ad ever?

by The Big E on June 23, 2012 · 4 comments

Compare and contrast…

In the pantheon of political campaigns, two ads leap to mind as possibly the worst two ever. First, Carly Fiorina’s Demon Sheep ad. Secondly, Mike Gravel’s ad in which he just stares into the camera for a minute before walking away.

But is there now a rival? A third ad that could be even worse?

We’ve had indications that the Kurt Bills campaign against Sen. Amy Klobuchar is going to be a train wreck. But who could predict it might be this bad?

Within the first 30 seconds, some poor senior citizen hangs himself while ominous music meaninglessly throbs. By the 32 second, there’s been a mullet sighting. Somehow, the guy who hanged himself is back from the dead?

Is Kurt Bills the pro-zombie candidate?

Who the **** cares about Riley Thomas when Bills tries to impersonate Rod Serling and fails. He’s wooden enough and creepy enough, but is utterly lacking in any kind of cool demeanor that Serling radiated.

Mike Gravel:

What others would you suggest?

These are so bad you can’t help but watch.

a pronounced tendency, to be embarrassed “for” others.  I know that that’s pointless and even presumptuous;  what business do I have, putting my notions of what should and shouldn’t be considered embarrassing, onto anyone but myself?

That being said, I find myself embarrassed for Bills, and everyone else involved in this.  And I couldn’t even get through the first minute;  I suppose that it only gets worse.  They were apparently trying to be all innovative and cutting-edge, but, oh, the horror…

Easily the worst I’ve ever seen.  I don’t suppose that this is high-profile enough, for Colbert to parody it, like he did one of Pawlenty’s, in a very entertaining way.

whole thing. The first few seconds–which deliver the impression and that we will die old and broke and hang ourselves if Kurt Bills isn’t elected–are as bad as this message gets.

The rest of the ad is, comparatively speaking, a jolly trip down the water slide on a hot summer day. The old suicide visits his younger self, the younger self presumably decides that he will support Bills and the Ron Paul agenda–and when he makes that decision: he suddenly finds that his prosperity, freedom, and even the family he never had (!!!) are redeemed for him.

And his Redeemer liveth–it is, according to this ad, Kurt Bills determined to fight on this Job’s behalf against the Adversary (Amy Klobuchar) and her remorseless to wipe out freedom, money, and the human will to live.

So it’s a happy ending. (What a bunch of FNs.)

on YouTube, the creeps among us will send checks to candidate Bills.  The name “Kurt Bills” seems like an Al Capp name for a blow hard law maker.  

The posse of wacky, right wing Minnesotans seeking and getting elected to office is growing.
