Every year TPM hands out their annual Golden Duke awards. This year Rep. Virgil Goode is a finalist for the Sleaziest Campaign Ad Award for his "Met Tom Perriello" ad. Any ad that makes you simultaneously hate Tom for being both Muslim and Jewish is its own kind of clever.
I can tell you first hand that this ad had a negative affect on his campaign ... well, couple that with Tom's positive ads.
Update: As Darren Staley reminds me, our sisters and brothers to the South are also represented in this contest: soon to be ex-Sen. Dole's "Godless" ad against now Senator-Elect Kay Hagan.
