A quick trip back in time, and to Alabama, where a man named Dale Peterson is said to have run the “best” political advertisement ever.

In 2010, while his first ad hit 2.5 million views, Peterson lost his race to be Agriculture Commissioner.

Later in life, he would lose another campaign, get arrested for stealing beer and paper towels from a Walmart, and get caught stealing a can of cashews from a Sam’s Club.

Yes, there is a connection to Roy Moore, at least by a columnist in the Birmingham News.

This ad is worth 51 seconds.
