We don’t agree with his policies, but this ad is funny and very effective:

Gerald Daugherty, a Republican county commissioner in the Austin-area Travis County, has produced one of the best ad-spots of the season, depicting him as a politics-obsessed public servant whose long-suffering, side-eyeing wife can’t wait for him to be re-elected so she won’t have to listen to him drone on about how much he wants to help people and fix things in the county.

Daugherty’s platform is the usual municipal Republican fare, emphasizing tax-reduction, cuts to public transit (“fighting boondoggles”), and building more roads.
