Illinois gubernatorial candidate goes nuclear

We finally found one political ad worth running: the one above for Tim Nieukirk, who is running for governor of Illinois, though his real mission seems to be to be to make fun of political ads. To illustrate that he’s tough on crime, Nieukirk bags the Hamburglar in a sting operation. You can see other videos of his, such as his first political rally, here. His tagline: “Get Nieuked.” According to this story, Nieukirk has also proposed “selling advertisements on ceilings for bored students.”
