What are the year's best political ads for third party and independent candidates (so far)? Over the last week, I've viewed dozens of political ads and short videos produced by and for Libertarian, Green, Constitution Party and Independent candidates for office from Maine to California and Florida to Washington. Thanks to everyone who commented here and at IPR, and those who wrote in with suggestions and nominations! From this unscientific sampling of videos, it is safe to conclude that there are some very savvy and extremely creative ads out there, and probably many many more which I still have not seen.See the original post for all eleven videos plus four special mentions. Poli-Tea's results include
Best Ad: Glenn Wilson vs. The DonsRead the whole thing.

Darkest Message in a Generic Ad: Gail Giaramita
