Five Lamest Campaign Ads of Arizona's 2010 Primary

Categories: Election 2010

Campaign ads are horrible. Nobody wants to have their living room invaded by local politicos who want nothing more than to talk about how great they are -- or how much the other guy sucks.

We would argue that all political ads are awful but this primary season has been exceptional in the degree to which the ads completely sucked.

Here we are in the final hours of the primary campaign and we've taken the time to breakdown what we feel are the worst ads to come out of Arizona's 2010 primary. Have a look at our selections after the jump.


1) The Danged Fence:

First of all, McCain is walking along the border with the sheriff of a county that doesn't even border Mexico. That aside, McCain says "danged" -- a word that should only be used by hillbillies and preachers. And then there's the cheese-tastic conclusion: "Senator, you're one of us." Get a room, you two.

2) Barack Obama is the Worst President in History:

Say what you want about Barack Obama but if it weren't for McCain's "danged" fence, this would be the worst campaign ad in history. It doesn't even make sense -- it's just random statements thrown together as Quayle practices his best tough-guy face.


3) Pam Gorman's Sarah Palin Impression:

Leave it to Pam Gorman to use an ad that looks like it was shot in 1976 to make Arizonans look like gun-toting, hillbilly maniacs. We get it -- she wants to be Arizona's version of the take-no-prisoners, kinda-sorta-hot, Republican bitch made famous by Sarah Palin. As (ahem) charming as that can be, we're over it.

4) "Character Matters:"

Not the worst ad in the world -- topical, well-shot, and it happens: Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever blows what could be a better-than-average campaign ad with an awkwardly spoken "character matters."

5) Joe Arpaio's 2010 Re-election Ad:

The ad itself isn't lame, it's more the idea: a public official using his position to go after his political opponents under the guise of a campaign ad for an election that's two years away. Uber-lame (and possibly criminal).

According to the Heritage Foundation analysis of Reid's amnesty program, taxpayers will be burdened with an additional $2.6 trillion in retirement benefits, for illegal aliens settled here, which even flip flopper Sen. John McCain wants to become citizens. FAIR (Federation for American Immigration Reform) Illegal Immigration expenditures have reached $113 Billion annually, prejudiced Drain on Taxpayers. With an addition of $60 billion of illegal wages spirited out of the country as a legal remittance, with the compliments of numerous American banks.

EVERY INCUMBENT, CAREER POLITICIAN WHO HAS A BAD IMMIGRATION RECORD, BEGINNING WITH SEN. REID AND HIS CZARS MUST BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE.Americans must—NOT-- become politically docile in the next months and must reach out to the growing Tea Party members who see illegal immigration as a spreading financial menace. Although Senator turncoat John McCain fought off the platform of J. D. Hayworth, but we must remember that illegal aliens do vote, even it is a violation on federal law specifically Honor States where ID cards are not required. More so in states that are too tolerant in absentee ballots. Countless states like the “Sanctuary State of California”, where there is a continuous, massive ingress of foreign nationals eager to take advantage of welfare programs throughout the country. In California they are fighting off insolvency, where Senior Citizens have become Second class citizens, the fact that low income retirees cannot get dental care. Children fewer than 21 can apply and pregnant women, who as you would predict large numbers of illegal immigrants, coming to America to have a baby.

Receiving instant citizenship and thereafter the whole family can arrive to live in a Section 8 home, awarded to the child; as approved under the 14th Amendment. Today, we have seen the movement of the Tea Party of “Enough is enough” syndrome as strange results in midterm election is displaying the power of the vote. America has bile coming into their throats from incumbents and its time for new people, with some semblance of honesty and genuine interest in doing the bidding of the people. Not the wealthy elites and the usual open border politicians as Senator Harry Reid and his electoral crowd of Czars have retreated, who seemed to have no idea how to build the economy. We need more Governors such as Arizona's Jan Brewer, who are hard-core soldiers and not affluent namesake Gov. Bloomburg in New York. Roy Beck, president of NumbersUSA website is sending e-mails to the millions of its pro-sovereignty membership, to contact their local, state and federal leaders to congratulate those lawmakers with a great anti-illegal immigration record.

Then Contempt for those who have disgusting report of not supporting the people and resolute on awarding Amnesty.Democrats under HS Secretary Napolitano new directive that—ONLY—criminal aliens are being deported and the rest are being released back into society. Every illegal alien must be removed or this can be classed as a stealth—AMNESTY. Being unable to pass some kind of PATH TO CITIZENSHIP, the majority leadership are allowing economic illegal aliens to GO and therefore take America jobs. NumbersUSA has this nation's most complete record of every immigration action ever taken by every single Member of Congress. Their computers calculate an Immigration-Reduction grade for a Member's CAREER, and also for the RECENT actions (2007-10), and for THIS CONGRESS. For an example Senator Reid has a lousy representation on illegal immigration of (F MINUS) and his push for another Amnesty. Seems to millions of Americans that the Democrats will tax us, so we can subsidize the juggernauts of illegal aliens still entering America.


WARNING! Republican voters must REPENT...FLASHBACK: 6-21-07 Communication to from Lloyd the Baptist

"I tuned in your radio show one Saturday morning while helping a friend refinish his patio deck. This is an old friend I’ve known since the 70’s, but in the last decade+ became an evangelical, right-wing Christian. He heard what you had to say and HE WENT OFF! I’ve rarely seen a display of anger and hatred directed at a radio. (lol) A rant that ended with a description of Jesus gunning down all the homo’s and commies (or something like that, lol)

Anyways the reason I’m writing is to offer you up a different plan of action. You’ll never get through to the right-wing fanatics with you’re present strategy. Facts, statistics, eyewitness accounts, verifiable research, legitimate evidence, literary content and the words of JESUS means nothing to these misguided Christian Fundamentalists. (lol)

I’VE FOUND one needs to communicate with the Conservative wacko W.A.S.P.’s using their own bullshit AGAINST THEM! See how long Republicans like Christianity when it starts to talk about ETHICS, RESPONSIBILITY and ACCOUNTABILITY!"

8-24-10I wrote that communication way back in 2007... It took that long to convert my good friend back to TRUTH! He had been lied to for so long, it took time to get through the propaganda brain-cloud...

The process was filled with suffering and degradation that recently ended with an intervention that included the Michael Moore movie “Capitalism, A Love Story”, the “NYC Mosque” episode of "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart and a trip into Sangre de Christo Mountains in NM to get him baptized in the Holy Hot Springs

NOTE from SPQR: (guided tour into the New Mexico mountains including baptism is available for $549.00 per person, not including air fare to ABQ)

I went out of my way for a good friend... but in the process discovered a technique to get through to poor brainwashed, holier-than-thou Republicans. If you care about someone who is suffering from Conservative wacko severe superiority complexes, odd paranoia and religious delusions please contact us for this cure.Lloyd the Baptist

NOTE from SPQR: Urgent - remember Lloyd the Baptist talked to JESUS in the Blood of Christ Mountains last Christmas and came back with a warning for Conservative Christians to REPENT! The wrath of GOD is coming soon. If you don’t believe now, just wait and see what happens to Conservative wacko propagandists and preachers between now and Christmas…

LTB says Pat Robertson, Newt Gingrich, Glenn Beck and a select few from the Pentagon/CIA are destined to be in the ETERNAL FLAMES of HELL… Don’t join them, REPENT NOW! Cast out the evil money changers of the Republican Corporate Socialist Party this November or else they’ll try to turn the American PEOPLE into peasants. THEN Republican voters will spend the remainder of their lives tortured by SHAME and REGRET! This ain’t no Tea Party… THIS IS A FULL SCALE CLASS WAR!
