Forest Gump Was From Alabama

This is a real ad. Dale Peterson wants to be Alabama's next Republican Agricultural Commissioner. Apparently he thinks that means he will be in charge of U.S. immigration policy, reducing unemployment, and capturing the bad guys with his Red Ryder BB gun, cowboy hat and horse. Not a mention of a single agricultural issue in this ad. Nice!

This is a real ad by one Republican attacking another Republican in the primary for Governor of Alabama. The smoking hot accusation in this ad is that Bradley Bryne believes in evolution. It turns out, of course, that this is nothing but a damn lie! Bradley Byrne wants the world to know:
" I believe the Bible is the Word of God and that every single word of it is true.... As a member of the Alabama Board of Education, the record clearly shows that I fought to ensure the teaching of creationism in our school text books. "

This is a real ad. Tim James wants to be Alabama's next Republican Governor. He says he wants everyone to speak English and ends with a question: Does it to you?

This is supposed to be a parody, but after watching the previous ads, it's a little hard to tell.

Bill Maher did some really hilarious parodies of these on his show this week. Its worth watching.

Peterson needs some basic firearms training. The USMC rule #3 for weapons handling is this:
3) Keep trigger finger straight and off the trigger until you are ready to fire.

Apparently he did not learn.
