Awesome: The Charlie Crist ad remix

posted at 5:33 pm on September 8, 2010 by Allahpundit

Pure perfection, although the gag is so straightforward that I’m kicking myself for not thinking of it yesterday. Watch the original spot first or else you won’t appreciate the punchline — which, technically, isn’t exactly a punchline. This is pure truth in advertising, even if it did take a mischievous Crist opponent with some video software to do it. Sometimes the simplest jokes are the best ones, my friends.

Latest poll from Florida has it Rubio 36, Crist 34, Meek 24. Looks good enough, but it’s fraught with danger: Crist is beating Rubio by 16 points among independents and, although he trails Meek 54/36 among Democrats, can change that in a hurry by declaring that he’ll caucus with the party if elected. Meek needs to do better.

Does Florida have intent-based write-ins like Alaska?

I want to write “closeted orange slimebag” and have it COUNT

YES! Rubio should run this.

Still trying to figure out where Cholly got the Red M from.

Do you think we could get away with “Father of love-child Snooki” and have it count?

Now that’s funny!

For the first time in my adult life, I would welcome some wild accusations of Charlie Crist and “racism”. Your move Maxine Waters????

Crist is beating Rubio by 16 points among independents

Why these people call themselves “independents” is incomprehensible. They voted Obama in.

Schadenfreude on September 8, 2010 at 5:42 PM

And the latest CNN poll has Rand Paul tied at 46%…?

d1carter on September 8, 2010 at 5:42 PM

d1carter on September 8, 2010 at 5:42 PM

Probably means he’s up by 8 to 14+…….

No worries

RealMc on September 8, 2010 at 5:44 PM

I’m wary of most polls after Gallups latest, but Crist leads with Independents? Hard to believe.

sandee on September 8, 2010 at 5:44 PM

Oh man, I watched it twice and it’s still hilarious.

SnKArcbound on September 8, 2010 at 5:44 PM

The last Rand Paul number I saw was plus 13. Better stop looking at any polls.

sandee on September 8, 2010 at 5:45 PM

ha ha ha Buh Bye Chaly!

Not really.

OMG! i almost fell off my chair at work!!

moonbatkiller on September 8, 2010 at 5:55 PM

The latest poll though is from the same group that has Rand Paul in a dead heat.

Zaggs on September 8, 2010 at 5:55 PM

That guy pegs the douchemeter.

RarestRX on September 8, 2010 at 5:58 PM

I can’t believe independents are falling for Crist’s hokum like that.

Poll is of registered voters, not likelies. So it probably understates Rubio’s support.

Jon0815 on September 8, 2010 at 6:06 PM

Ummm, there’s no “m” in republican….the red “m” should have been blue and the “e” red. What a moron.

milwife88 on September 8, 2010 at 6:15 PM

Yes, and Rasmmussen and SurveyUSA both have Paul +15.

Jon0815 on September 8, 2010 at 6:17 PM

OT: Babra Boxer aide busted trying to bring pot into the Hart Senate Office. He was one of her economic advisors.

This could be the greatest political ad of all time!!
I cant stop laughing!

The party of “ME”. Hey that’s Barrack’s party too.

Mojave Mark on September 8, 2010 at 6:27 PM

I just love it.

ThePrez on September 8, 2010 at 6:27 PM

Is there anyone even thinking about voting for this effin idiot? Hello, my aunt and uncle who live there, hello my cousins, anyone thinking of this? My God, time to build the bunkers and man the guns if this asshule is elected. They have to be defended from me!!!!!

hip shot on September 8, 2010 at 6:28 PM

Classic!

Nethicus on September 8, 2010 at 6:31 PM

I think Rubio should run that if he`s able to. Floridians would sit back and think, “…..Yeah, it is all about him, isn`t it? I`m votin` Rubio!”

ThePrez on September 8, 2010 at 6:34 PM

Um ya, about that CNN poll.

They have KY tied.

While RAS and PPP both have Paul +15.

Why should we believe their FL poll?

artist on September 8, 2010 at 6:44 PM

That poll is registered voters, not likely.

lizzie beth on September 8, 2010 at 6:51 PM

That’s fabulous

MainelyRight on September 8, 2010 at 6:53 PM

That is too awesome!

+200!

orfannkyl on September 8, 2010 at 6:56 PM

Sometimes the simplest jokes are the best ones, my friends.

For humor to work, there must be an element of truth. When that truth is all too obvious, the humor cuts like a knife.

Extrafishy on September 8, 2010 at 7:07 PM

Sometimes Wednesday is just Wednesday and then you get to see something like this.

Just two letters. TWO LETTERS!!!

It defines Charlie Crist. It is “simply” brilliant.

Thanks AP

All I have to say is…

Genius!

JetBoy on September 8, 2010 at 7:23 PM

Independent: A Democrat to ashamed to admit it in public.

See: Moderate, Centrist.

So how long do you think Chahlly will be running his ad. Rubio needs to run this ad.

“…a mischievous Crist opponent with some video software to do it.”

Not really. I’m just one of the many who are patiently bidding their time until Nov. 2nd. – Thanks for posting this Alla. We were up until the wee hours putting this together.

“Biding” that is. :)

The Zoo Keeper on September 8, 2010 at 9:02 PM

Wow.. just wow. ;-)

itzWicks on September 9, 2010 at 12:20 AM

The primary point that Gov. Crist makes support my idea of doing away with the party system. We are voting for a person to make the changes necessary to repeal many of the laws passed in the past which have repressed U.S.

This one little simple act makes U.S. read and thing about each candidate and what they stand for. It also requires the voters to read and and understand the ballot; not just find the (D) and fill in the oval.

MSGTAS on September 9, 2010 at 9:30 AM

This one sill be stuck in people’s mind, not the original.
