It's nice to be reminded that campaigns get dirty all over the world. A TV ad for Austrailia's Country Liberal Party briefly showed this image containing an insult to Labor Party Chief Minister Paul Henderson cleverly hidden in the eye chart. "HENDO IS A JERK OFF GET RID OF HIM."

As Pundit Kitchen is located in the United States, I can't say one way or another whether Henderson is in fact a jerk off. (Any Australians want to help me out here?) I can say that the County Liberal Party has now removed the line from the ad and suggested Henderson "should now make a similar commitment to end their scaremongering campaign which is based on lies and deception."

Awww, they think they matter. What's the strangest local campaign ad you've seen in your town?
