Illinois Governor Pat Quinn's advertising strategy has caused quite a stir in the media lately. First he was given the honorific of "America's Nastiest Political Ad" for an attack ad against his opponent, conservative Bill Brady. The ad painted Brady as a politician who wants to kill small animals because it focused on Brady's sponsorship of a state bill that would have lifted the state's limit of one animal at a time in an animal shelter's gas chamber.
This time Quinn's team tempered the punches with a well done parody of Glee. There's still plenty of snark and low blows, but, hey!, Glee makes anything light hearted? Right? Even teen pregnancy, coming out, and narcissism are giggle-worthy when you give them a snappy soundtrack! This is one of the best political spots I've seen this year.
Quinn's cringe-worthy mass euthanasia TV ad is after the jump. What do you think? Low blows or perfectly acceptable? Are these dirty politics or not?
