Rick Santorum Flings Feces, and Five Other Unintentionally Hilarious Political Ads

Splat.
Splat.

In concept, Rick Santorum's latest ad targeting Mitt Romney really isn't so bad. To drive home his point about Romney's mud-slinging campaign, the commercial depicts him firing actual mud at cardboard cutouts of Santorum -- none of which stick, of course.

But when your last name has become a euphemism for, well, you know, it's maybe not a great idea to run ads featuring fecal-looking sludge.

Santorum's fake poo-flinging ad is just the latest in America's long tradition of exaggerated and ridiculous political commercials. Hell, it's not even our favorite. But you can check it out after the jump, along with five more serious(ly funny) politicians' commercials.



Warming: the sickening splat of santorum in this ad will put you off your breakfast.

Upcoming Events


Yes, we have the maturity of an 8-year-old. But seriously, can you watch this whole commercial without giggling? We didn't think so.

 


This one's intentionally funny. But we're not laughing with Huckabee; we're laughing at him and his desperate pandering to the dweebs who created the Chuck Norris meme in the first place.


Dale Peterson tells it like it is, but we still don't know what "it" is, because we're too busy laughing at his 10-gallon hat and random rifle.

 



It sure was nice of Len Britton to let actors from Taftsville Community Theater perform a short skit in the middle of his ad for senator.


Remember when we said the Santorum ad isn't our favorite? That's because this one is. Bring us to the man who plays the evil, red-eyed wolf in sheep's clothing -- we want to shake his hand.
