Lies, Damn Lies, and Campaign Commercials

Click here to visit MovingImage.us' collection of television advertisments from presidential campaigns. They have pieces from every election stretching back to 1952. My favorites are Jackie O's spanish language ad encouraging Latinos to support her first husband's bid for president and George Bush's recently yanked "Coalition of the Wild-Eyed," one of the strangest political ads I've ever seen.
