Herman Cain And The 9 Craziest Campaign Videos Of Recent Years

Tuesday, October 25 by

Pamela Gorman – 2010

This video tries to sell this Arizona conservative by just having her shoot a shitload of guns. It works in that I want very badly to sleep with her now, but I fear that shooting a tommy gun doesn’t necessarily make you the best politician. The people of Arizona may have disagreed, because she got elected. Just kidding. She lost to Dan Quayle’s son, which is humiliating.

Dan Fanelli – 2010

The best part about this whole commercial is that it seems to be a horribly circuitous manner for Dan Fanelli to tell the world that he is a “good looking, ripped guy without much hair.” Clearly, the video says otherwise, making Dan Fanelli’s campaign built on a foundation of lies. He also calls his opponent “a bum,” which is a delightful throwback to the days when Florida congressional candidates weren’t strapping bombs to Muslims in their commercials.

Carly Fiorino – 2010

This video runs almost eight minutes, so I can’t ask you to watch the whole thing, as I only made it about a minute in before I decided this was batshit-crazy enough to make the cut. I decided right around the time Barbera Boxer’s head became a blimp and started floating around the countryside.

I wish I could say this was the second and last Fiorino ad to make this list. I really wish I could.
