A fantastic ad. Perhaps the greatest political ad that I've ever seen.
This is Jeff Barth, and he's running to beat incumbent Kristi Noem, the U.S. Representative for South Dakota's at-large congressional district.
My guess is that the nearly-five-minute spot will only get play on the interwebs, but I hope it goes viral. At posting, it's actual YouTube page has just under 17,000 views. That's not too shabby.
I'm not a Democrat, but if I lived in South Dakota -- Barth would have my vote.
Anyway, I'm going to keep an eye on this race if for no other reason than honoring Barth's moxie. And his props.
