If this doesn’t take the bad taste out of your mouth this year, nothing will.
During this God-awful election year, is there anyone who can save us from ourselves?
Yes. Gerald Daugherty.
He has my vote, whoever he is. (Sources say he is a county commissioner in Texas.)
Watch his superb ad below. It’s set the interwebs ablaze—and rightfully so. Adweek calls it “the most charming ad of the 2016 election”and notes:
The race for president has been characterized by negativity, partisan extremism and a “lesser-of-the-two-evils” attitude. As the race to the ballot boxes heats up, things are only getting more insufferable.
So it comes as a refreshing surprise that, out of Texas, one Republican candidate is shooting for re-election as county commissioner with an ad that’s neither negative nor offensive (to anyone!). In “Please Re-Elect Gerald,” Gerald Daugherty’s long-suffering wife, Charlyn Daugherty, appears to beg voters to keep her husband in office—with a delightful amount of side-eye.
