Best Political Ad Ever?


This is from Paul Wellstone’s first campagin for Senate, back in 1990. It’s a parody of the Michael Moore film, “Roger and Me,” but with the challenger trying to find the incumbent (Senator Rudy Boschwitz) to debate him. It’s funny as hell, you can’t help but love Wellstone, and not surprisingly, it generated more PR/earned media (aka “free showings”) than just about any political ad in history.

Oh yeah, and that year, Paul Wellstone was the only challenger to defeat an incumbent senator.

    This was a great ad in a similar time in history– when we needed a Paul Wellstone. I wish we had another Wellstone now to counter the crazy. This really shows Minnesota as Minnesota, too!
