Have you ever thought about what a political ad would look like if the candidate was one hundred percent honest in telling you what it is he stands for and what he truly believes?
Most of us have at least wished for that pie in the sky scenario, but a group known as has gone beyond wondering and actually produced several political ads in which the candidate is painfully honest about where he stands — and how little he cares for even his own convictions let alone what his constituents want if it gets in the way of the flow of money into his campaign coffers.
That candidate is “Honest Gil” Fulbright who demonstrates in his ads why it is that no politician is truly honest while on the campaign trail.
“Honest Gil” is a satirical candidate running in the Kentucky senatorial race against Mitch McConnell and Alison Lundergan Grimes Represent.us says because it is expected to be the most expensive race in Senate history. He will not appear on the ballot but is running to make a point.
He promises that he will not concern himself with jobs and the middle class because “People without jobs can’t afford to donate to my campaign. And the middle class, well, they’ll be gone soon anyway.”
Gil tells visitors to his campaign site that he is “America’s first honest politician” and that he is “looking forward to my future as a lobbyist.”
