The Silliest Political Ad of the Campaign: A Union’s Anti-Romney Ad

In a way, I feel a sense of relief.

I had begun to doubt my own reaction as an independent voter since I had started to conclude that silliness and grasping at straws to try and find negatives about candidates was almost only happening on the GOP side.

But, no, my faith that silliness and all-encompassing frenzy of partisans and groups to grab onto anything to strain and try to discredit a candidate is a malady in both parties (uh, come The False Equivalency Police) and an inspiration to many voters to stay independent has been restored.

The award for the silliest reason to vote against a candidate goes to this labor group ad that you might say involves quintessential garbage.

(And no, it is not produced by The Politico’s Roger Simon as another unfunny, unsuccessful attempt at satire.)
