Campaign Videos That Reek

By Greg L | 15 July 2011 | Loudoun County, Fairfax County, Humor & Satire | 3 Comments

You’re a candidate for office, and you want to get your message out.  What better way to do that than with a video?  It’s inexpensive, you can do anything you want, and it’s sure to get attention.  As Too Conservative and Not Larry Sabato point out today, that wide open field does however allow candidates to pretty much disqualify themselves for office by making them look foolish, non-serious and utterly incompetent.  Sometimes the attention a candidate gets with a video isn’t the attention a candidate really wants.

First up, courtesy of NLS is someone challenging Tim Hugo who seems to think an election is a third-rate cable talent show.  As far as candidates go, Dianne Blais has started her campaign with a bad joke.  Where it goes from here is anyone’s guess, but it should be entertaining in a morbidly fascinating way.  I can’t wait to see this performed live at a campaign event, maybe with a dancer dressed up as a giant hotdog doing the macarena, or something.

Doesn’t this just scream “this lady belongs in Richmond?”  Well, that, or the new incarnation of the “Gong Show.”  I can’t decide.

UPDATE: There’s more!  Oh, my.  This is just unbelievable.  This isn’t some sort of one-time lapse of judgment.  This is utterly intentional.

Next up, courtesy of TC, is Bahiri Aliriza. The only way you can figure out who the guy is is to see another of his videos on his YouTube Channel, but then this masterpiece might not be something you necessarily want associated with your name.

I love how he muddles through what he hopes is a complete list of minority racial and ethnic groups as the camera does a menacing “crash zoom.” It’s three minutes of your life you’ll wish you’d had back, unless the purpose of watching this was purely for entertainment.  The LCDC is so impressed they’re asking this guy not to run.  Heck, if the LCDC thinks you’re too much of a goofball to run for office, you really, really gotta be bad.

Just last week I went on a tirade about candidates making themselves look idiotic with amateur campaign videos, but apparently there are some out there bound and determined to contribute even more examples of what not to do for a follow-up. There’s enough material being generated on a weekly basis at this point for a weekly television show, it seems. You could call such a show “When Candidates Go Bad,” but it really seems to be the case they didn’t go bad like a half-full carton of milk forgotten in the back of the fridge for a month, they started out that way.

Seriously folks, take some advice here and don’t make your campaign videos your opponent’s best weapon against you.

    Best yet is that Blais left comments enabled on this YouTube video. Some of my favorites are “Isn’t Archie Bunker supposed to be in this duet?”, “Hey, if that elected office thing doesn’t work out, there’s always sunday school pianist.” and “she lost my vote. reminds me of my 4th grade music teacher. kept making me use that wooden hollow fish thing with the stick to make that noise….i hope she loses”

    Terminal campaign stupidity in all its glory!

    Great commentary!

    I may not be a great fan of who you’re working for these days, but your video quality is far above anyone else’s.
