Jeff Barth for Congress

Full disclosure: I know this guy and knew that he was smart and funny. But this is genius:

South Dakota Democrats reading this blog who are not Jeff Barth, please vote for Jeff Barth. Those outside of South Dakota with friends/relatives/etc. in South Dakota, please forward this to them and encourage them to vote for, yes, Jeff Barth.

Thank you, and God bless Jeff Barth, the State of South Dakota, and the United States of America.

I love the fact that some commentators online have determined that Jeff's ad closely resembles a Johnnie Walker ad. Brilliant!

I'll take your word for it that Jeff Barth is a good, smart guy, but the ad did nothing for me, except get me nervous that Barth was going to have a heart attack and drop dead as soon as the camera was turned off. (Did you hear him wheezing?)

That said, I did like the placement of the horse -- and this YouTube comment: "I don't always run for Congress, but when I do...I bring props."

Btw, here's a link to the Johnnie Walker ad, which is brilliant. (Love the subtitles. And the actor is the guy who plays Rumpelstiltskin on Once Upon a Time.) I think Barth could have benefited from a piper and some Scotch.

Speaking of which, I could use a shot. (Cue rubber duck)

P.S. Would love to a political post from @lietzlaw.

Yeah, those blends will get you every time. Stick to single malts.
