Best Campaign Commercials (2005)

Anti-Marilyn Musgrave ads

Coloradans for Plain Talk wanted Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave to be defeated in the worst way -- and they proved it with attack advertisements they financed to undermine her candidacy. The commercials, which featured a pink-suited Musgrave surrogate picking a soldier's pocket and robbing a corpse in an open casket, displayed a wicked sense of humor that tickled funny bones even as they made jaws drop. Although they failed to prevent Musgrave from getting re-elected, these ads were winners with us.
