Funny Political Ads

What do you think about them? Effective? Fair? Raise discourse?

I’ve been thinking about this ever since seeing how effective SNL mocking of Sarah Palin was.

Anyway, it came to mind again, because some PAC started mocking Joe Biden in a similar manner.

(There is apparently a part II where they have him telling the guy in the wheelchair to get up and the mocking of the sign language girl.)

As long as they’re accurate I don’t see a problem with them. If they’re particularly funny AND accurate they can also be quote effective. Nothing hurts more than any kind of ad, funny or not, that turns out to be untrue when researched. Whether the candidate actually produces and endorses it or not.
