Rand Paul Wins ‘Worst Political Ad Ever’ Award
“Audit the Ted” is just… terrible
After being relegated to the Republican presidential primary undercard debate last week, presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul decided not to attend. Mind you, debate stage rankings are based on national polling, but whatever.
Childish? Perhaps. But nowhere near as cringe-worthy as this ad released not by an unaffiliated PAC, but by Paul’s campaign.
“Audit the Ted” takes aim at fellow Republican contender, Sen. Ted Cruz for his close ties to big banks. As evidence of this, the ad cites Cruz’s Goldman Sachs loans.
Two crudely animated characters with British accents (?) chat with one another about Cruz’s “inside connections” and Paul’s standing as the only liberty-oriented, good-haired candidate. Meanwhile, the voices are from a rudimentary talk and play program. The whole ordeal is terrible from beginning to end.
Without further ado, “Audit the Ted.”
The first thing that comes to mind?
“Liberty constitution liberty constitution liberty constitution liberty constitution straw poll money bomb money bomb straw poll money bomb Alex Jones Bilderburg Big Banks secret prison campus founding fathers socialism liberty false flag. Fish sticks. Yum. I win the debate. Ru Paul Ru Paul. I win the debate.”
Sadly, we can’t rule out “beyond parody. “Audit the Ted” is almost identical to a 2012 election-era video mocking Ron Paul supporters.
Relatedly, I always read Paul’s campaign slogan, “Defeat the Washington Machine,” as “Defeat the Washing Machine,” and am reminded of my loathe of laundry.

Was this the guy whose “every waking hour” was going to be focused on stopping Trump?
Well, there’s an argument to be made that he was asleep when he authorized the making of THAT hot mess…
If you just look at Christy, Paul, T-rump, Rubio, and Hucksterbeeeee over the last 48 hours or so, you know who’s winning.
I just looked at all the most recent polls.
We have the Reuters moving average national poll – likely voter screen has Trump up by 18.
Trump is up by double digits in Georgia and Florida
Trump has a 14 point lead in South Carolina
Polls will be coming out tomorrow and on Friday. Very important week I would think.
Another T-rump poll dancer.
So far all the post debate polls show Trump holding or increasing his lead and and margins. They also seem to have Bush moving back up some into 2nd tier status again.
Nope if you look at the polls you can tell who is winning.
Hey !! Spunky
Wait for a T-rump thread, Trump sucker. Nobody cares about your bullshit.
Who are these people? Obviously, English is not their first language – and that brings up the question I asked.
Here’s a great Trump radio ad that is currently running in Iowa and NH
and these guys make the best Trump videos (not part of the campaign)
Another attempted thread-jack by a T-rump sucker.
Those Trump videos are excellent which accounts for the Rags attemt at diversion and distraction.
Wait..didn’t you say whatever is posted on a public thread is fair game to comment on?
Thread jacks are different, aren’t they you lying SOS?
Oh what a hhhhottttt mess you are! yes indeed…..
Like his 2nd post from top wasn’t attempted thread knapping.
Nope. It was an observation of the conduct of several candidates.
Wasn’t it, liar?
Nope you liar it was observation unrelated to thread and attempted thread jack you lying SOS !
“If you just look at Christy, Paul, T-rump, Rubio, and Hucksterbeeeee over the last 48 hours or so, you know who’s winning.”
I know you’re too stupid and WAY too dishonest to see that what I said is exactly the truth.
Even you are not so slavish a follower to compare that comment to your slathering T-rump cultist’s videos and Fillygui’s poll dancing all over the thread.
Of course, you’ll lie about anyhow…
pugs is just upset because people see through his baloney. Filled with hot air and floating away….
Tell you what, Gaghdad Bob and Fillygui, I won’t post on this thread again if you won’t.
We can leave it to people who want to comment on the TOPIC of the post about Rand Paul’s AWFUL ad.
I liked the first ad, and heavens knows Ted needs to be audited.
