WTF Political Ad of the Day: The Bridge Is Out!

This political GOTV video is sure to go viral for its jaw-droppingly funny cajoling of Democrats to vote early in Jeffersonville, Indiana. Made to support incumbent Mayor Galligan's re-election campaign, the short clip features: a bridge between Kentucky and Indiana, a monster made of traffic cones, the Goodbodies family, and their dog, P Diddy.

You might be wondering what the point of the video is. If you don't know the area, you'd think people from Kentucky need to cross the bridge to vote in Indiana. In actuality, a good portion of Jeffersonville voters live in Indiana and work in the Louisville, Kentucky area. The polls close early in Indiana - 6pm - while many commuters will still be stuck in the construction area.

(Hat tip and belly laugh to producer Mike Marshall)

Is this the "bridge to nowhere" that Sarah what's-her-name was talking about? Indiana GOP Governor Mitch Daniels closed it with the concurrence of his Kentucky GOP counterpart......they said it was a safety matter but do you suppose it's really a "motor voter" measure designed to discourage Democrats from going to the polls? If they try to swim across the Ohio Rive will they have to present a valid ID before they can go ashore?
