Georgia Political Spot Breaks New Ground In Duh-Ness

Democrat Roy Barnes, a former Georgia governor turned out by voters in 2002, is seeking to return to that office. State Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine, a Republican aspirant to the same position, has decided that the best way to prevent Barnes from achieving his goal is by creating the dumbest campaign ad of all time. He has succeeded beyond any known metric. This ad is not just stupid, it is powerful stupid. Please do enjoy.

I've been to Georgia. What happened to all the African Americans?

This is the most Aesopian campaign ad ever!

Dumb as an Ox! (But…graceful?)

Exactly, I thought I heard it wrong and listened to it a second time (I am an idiot)just to make sure he said graceful. GRACEFUL

Not Aesop but Chinese Zodiac. I'm embarrassed to be an Ox.

Faith, family and felching.

Would it have made more sense if I watched it with the sound on? I did find the rat hugging the legislature to be ADORABLE.

Ron Obvious (#351)

He wasn't hugging it; he was dry-humping it.

This thing is 4 min long! Having worked with buying gubernatorial race TV time this will NEVER see the light of political golden hour (i.e. the local nightly news.)

Neopythia (#353)

They should just cut it down to the last 30 seconds of the ox knocking the rat out of the heartland of Georgia to the godless bastions of Paris and NYC.

He thinks California gubmint is evil too but Arnie is a republican.

Is this some kind of allegorical praise of police brutality? The tall, pale ox is whacking the crap out of the dark little rat.

Also – this makes Cornyn's "Big John" spot seem sophisticated.

I don't think anyone can beat the Corzine attack ad for duh-ness: "Chris Christie: Completely Wrong."

"Jon Corzine: His tag-lines are written by an eight grader running for class treasurer."

Jim Demintia (#1,815)

I thought for a second that the Confederate Generals were going to ride down off of Stone Mountain themselves to defeat the rat. By stepping in, is the Ox preventing the South from truly rising again?

I really want one of those bouncy rats. Who sells them?

slinkimalinki (#182)

i want one of those rat collars.

HiredGoons (#603)

To sum up: nothing works in Georgia.

that animation is adorable. will watch again with the sound off.

Tulletilsynet (#333)

This is not the kind of animation we deserve on a Friday.

Can someone tell me where "he" is? I can't believe they didn't cover that!

The Rat represents King Roy. You may have forgotten the Georgia's era of monarchy? Of course – one might think that Emperor Spatula might be responsible for a few of the problems back then.

mcbeachy (#548)

Favorite parts: the laughing Hilary Clinton, the very talented rat tail (he really hangs in there!) and the very white and aging Georgian populace.

ps – Is Stone Mountain one of the scariest places in the US? I think so.

Georgia finally got HyperCard.

I kept expecting the Ambiguously Gay Duo to make an appearance.

Is it possible to watch that without getting the idea that the ox is an arsonist?

musicmope (#428)

Someone didn't get past chapter 3 of his NLP primer. Who would describe an ox as graceful?

Swass LikeMe (#1,317)

I hate to admit it… but I don't listen to Georgia, either. And I don't want to explain things to Georgia. Also, I forgot about the people and I lust for power.

I feel like such a rat. :(
