We know we shouldn’t really enjoy negative campaigning, but when it’s well-directed at deserving political enemies, you’ve got to say it’s quite good fun.
The Daily certainly did enjoy the latest wave of Democrat attack ads. We post an example below, but the ad has been released in key races nation-wide, with the details changed for each Republican opponent.
On a slightly more surreal and alarming note is this example of the genre from a hard-right Republican wingnut. It’s worth watching just to remind yourself how pleasing every GOP loss will be come 7 November. (Hat-tip: Hull University Labour Club.)
Of course, we don’t have this on British TV thanks to the strict regulation of political broadcasting.
Perhaps it’s only a matter of time before attack ads start to quite legally appear on the internet via YouTube or internet TV ventures like 18 Doughty Street. But we do hope that Sion Simon is kept well away from any Labour Party efforts in that direction.
