Adventures in Hyper-Literal Campaign Ads

Mark Oxner is a Republican, running for the right to represent a new Florida district that will cover some part of Orlando. [Ed: Original post referred to Atlanta, for some reason.] The smart money is on a fairly blue area being carved out, and wealthy netroots hero Alan Grayson beating all comers to represent it. Oxner's response: A campaign ad produced by the delightfully named Vernon Furniss.


Can anybody really out-viral Alan Grayson, though? I'm skeptical.


David Weigel is a reporter for the Washington Post.
