Jackson’s Pro-Obama Ad Uses F-Word

Boise area blogger Dennis Mansfield posts: Four years ago, Ron Howard produced a clever ad in favor of Candidate Obama. In it he portrayed some of his TV characters - all of who were in support of then-Senator Obama. It attracted millions of views. (Apparently for 2012, the video's been pulled from you Tube. Hmm..) So what do we have this election, instead? Well, Samuel L. Jackson stars in a 4+ minute video on the Internet that has (to this hour) attracted only about 11,000 views. I viewed it on Facebook and deliberated putting it on this blog for you to view. I decided not to. Here's why: Throughout the video the script is inflammatory, base and uses foul language in a way that is unnecessary - even to the point of using a little 8 year-old girl saying "Wake the F- Up" What a comparison of two political ads. More here.

Question: Have you seen any political campaign ads that have riled you up?
