Slate's remixed campaign ads.

For many election cycles, Slate has sliced, diced, and dissed campaign commercials in our "Damned Spot" feature. This year, we have a new method of exposing the many tricks pols and their Svengalis use to persuade the masses: Damned Spot is now a video feature. This new format allows Slate's chief political correspondent, John Dickerson, to comment on the ads in real time, while you're watching them. Click on the players below to launch any of our Damned Spot segments.
