    Default Greatest Political Ad of All-Time?

    What's yours?

    Mine is President Lyndon Baines Johnson's "Daisy ad" in 1964 US Presidential election



    Scaremongering but also also he presents himself as a moderate, which I suppose he was when his opponent Barry Goldwater is considered.

    some of the most effective weren't technically "ads"

    The Daily Mail -- the world's biggest cut-and-paste operation.

    John F Kennedy against Richard Nixon 1960

    Sometimes there is very little between historical and hysterical. One passes for the other. In time, the former remains forever, the latter is quickly replaced...
