Worst Attack Ad?

Sen. Scott Brown.

December 10, 2010

An independent group is up with the first ad attacking Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown (R), but something tells me he's not bothered by it.

The ad attempts to take Brown to task for voting against failed legislation that would have lowered taxes only for Americans making less than $1 million per year.

The problem is that the ad, which was produced by the New York-based Agenda Project, does a miserable job of getting its message across. It features footage of Brown from his successful special election campaign. The only indication that the group is attacking him is the voice-over. What if viewers aren't paying attention to the commercial and only see the visuals? It's virtually free media for Brown.

Then there's the voice over. The narrator has a Bay State accent that just sounds fake. It is also chock full of laughable lines like "Mr. 'I drive a truck' is totally full of it."

Efforts to reach the Agenda Project were unsuccessful. The group assured Roll Call, however, that the spot is indeed going on air.

Check it out below.
