Best negative ad of the cycle?

Again, from the new Florida district 18 house race between Allen West and Patrick Murphy…

Also – honourable mention to the new McCaskill ads for Missouri Senate going after Akin and those legitimate rape comments:

While the Missouri Senate race is still close enough for some Republicans to hold out hope that embattled nominee Todd Akin can overcome his “legitimate rape” comments, a series of devastating ads released today serve as a reminder that the situation is probably terminal.

The three 30-second spots from Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, who leads by six percentage points in the two most recent public polls, feature highly personal testimonials from survivors of sexual assaults.

The spots are powerful, and with two of the women identifying themselves as pro-life, aimed squarely at constituencies Akin cannot afford to lose.

    As much as Akin rides the shortbus, I’d rather have him in the Senate voting the right way some of the time, than McCaskill voting the wrong way all of the time.
