The Living Room Candidate has every political commercial aired on National television since about 1952. The early commercials were actually relatively entertaining. But sometime in the 80s the quality of political commercials, in my humble opinion, declined dramatically.
Maybe its just an effect from actually being familiar with the candidates from this period, but the commercials from the 80s on are unadulterated crap as far as I am concerned. Any theories on why commercials over the last couple decades are just mealy mouthed crap?
For the record, the best of the commercials is this1968 clip titled “Laughter.”
