A New Low in Political Advertisements?

With nothing to lose but more of his own money, former convenience store magnate (kinda), local businessman, and independent candidate Christy Mihos has produced the 'cheekiest' political ad (so far) in the current Massachusetts gubernatorial race.

Nice tag. I just found out that Christy Mihos was, in fact, a man a few days ago, which shows how little he's been getting his face out (of) there.

For some reason, reminds me of those "Hey Mr. Owl! How many licks does it take to get to tootsie roll center or a tootsie pop?" ads. Why? I have no idea.

I do not live in MA or MN, but that ad reminded me of Jesse Ventura - another maverick. Then I followed the second link and found that the ad was from a man who worked for JV's campaign. Hmmm. Is it like 2-year-olds misbehaving to get attention?

Huh? What do you mean by 'it'? Running for governer? Running for governer is like being a 2 year old? Is that what you're saying?

One Democratic insider, who did not want to be named, put it this way: “This may be the greatest tongue-in-cheek ad in the history of politics.”

You know, I can't remember the last time I saw the word "cheeky" used without it turning out to be some kind of pun about asses.

The ad is a great way to go negative without calling out the competition. People will remember this one more than any other. Remember the Johnson era Daisy /Bomb ad? also Why is Christy orange?

Have you seen the man? He is actually orange:

Look what's new at our place
Put a smile on your face
Anything your heart desires
Christy's has it all

Always fresh, always clean
Fast and friendly, what a dream
Come in and see just what we mean
Christy's has it all!

(Sing it with me, mid 90's Celtics fans!)
