The Funny Business of Election Ads

Our country is in a serious situation.

This election is no laughing matter.

Oh, who are we kidding?

I'm requesting that you send me the most entertaining political ads of the season. Post links in the comments section below.

Here are a couple of my favorites, which I find entertaining regardless of party affiliation.

The first is an ad against Senator Barbara Boxer (but not necessarily for Carly Fiorina). David Zucker, the director behind comedies from "Airplane" to "Scary Movie 4", created the ad. Zucker reportedly used to be a Boxer supporter. Not anymore. His ad parodies Senator Boxer admonishing Brig. Gen. Michael Walsh for calling her "ma'am" instead of "Senator" during a June of 2009 hearing.

The second ad opposes California's Prop 23, which would suspend greenhouse gas reductions until unemployment falls. Actor David Arquette--now living the single life—plays "California" going up against "Texas Oil" in an ad called "Don't Mess with California".

Still, nothing in the last few weeks has topped the wild, weird never-aired-on-TV "Demon Sheep" ad by Carly Fiorina back during the primary, or the even weirder follow up taking aim andBarbara Boxer, called "HindenBoxer."
