N.C. politician’s attack ad borders on parody

Vernon Robinson, who’s running for Congress in North Carolina, doesn’t hold back. In this spot (the video is kind of jumpy), the announcer says, “Instead of spending money on cancer research, Brad Miller spent your money to study the masturbation habits of old men. … Brad Miller even spent your tax dollars to pay teenage girls to watch pornographic movies with probes connected to their genitalia.” Ouch. The voiceover adds: “If Miller had better priorities, you wouldn’t be having to hear this.” If Vernon had any sense of restraint, we wouldn’t either. Also check out Vernon’s ad about illegal immigrants.
