Political Attack Ads in El Salvador

Democrats and Republicans really need to take note: Their ads have NOTHING on attack ads run by the political parties of El Salvador.

Here's an ad attacking ARENA candidate Rodrigo Avila. At :36 in, an ominous voice announces, "Avila es un asesino", which means "Avila is a killer". Not a killer of jobs, or dreams, or anything like that. He's a straight up killer. It's okay, though, because he admitted to it on TV. Still, his opponents want voters to remember that fact when they go to the polls.

What do supporters of Rodrigo think of adversary Mauricio Funes who belongs to the FMLN party? Mauricio's a great candidate, as long as you don't have a problem with the fact that he belongs to a party made up of drug and arms traffickers. Also, they kill too.

I look forward to the day we get to see ads like these in our own presidential elections.
