The Best Political Ad of this Cycle #peterffy

Filed under: Marketing & Advertising,Movies / TV / Media,Politics — Chris Chaten @ 7:04 PM

By now, you have likely seen your fill of political ad, especially those of you residing in swing states like Ohio and Wisconsin.  But I beg you to watch just this one more, because I think it is the model all privately-funded ads should take.  For the moment, please put partisanship aside, and focus on the end of the ad (the ‘this ad was paid for’ part):

Notice anything different about this ad?  Instead of rich guys like the Koch brothers and George Soros hiding behind a PAC, Mr. Peterffy states his position, why he believes it, and puts is name on the by-line.  He’s saying, “Here I am, here’s my thinking, and this is why I think this way.”

This is a lot more real than taking potshots from the cheap seats behind a SuperPac.  You may not agree with Mr. Peterffy, but you have to applaud him standing in front of his message.

Regardless of your position, please vote tomorrow.  It is what makes this country great.  Also, starting…..now…..all orders get $20.12 off with the code ‘ivote’ .
