Worst Presidential Campaign Commercial Ever

This Adlai Stevenson campaign commercial from 1952 was so poorly done that it will make you burst out laughing. Television was still in its infancy so I guess they can be forgiven for this really lousy commercial. This commmercial is supposed to link Dwight D. (Ike) Eisenhower with Senator Bob Taft. The voices really crack me up. And for a special bonus there is also the worst campaign song ever written. Enjoy this VIDEO from the comedy angle.

Behold the Democrats' key strategy. Just replace the names with George and John.

Mel was a Democrat?

Well that explains this Bugs cartoon:

I still think he was hilarious.

Yuk. Sounds as if the Donks are slyly intimating that Ike and Bob are gay lovers. Would they do that in 1952?

...of course they would.
