Whose Political Ad Are You Happy to See Disappear?

With the election only one day away, it's time to fess up: Whether it's Akin, McCaskill, Spence, Nixon or someone else, which political ad will you be happy to see go?

You know the drill. 

The somber music plays in the background while a deep voice shares a fearful message about a candidate seeking election. Occasionally, a few seconds might be reserved afterward for an inspiring message from that candidate's challenger. 

These so-called attack ads have grown more prevalent as we've moved closer to the Nov. 6 election. 

In the U.S. Senate race, an ad from Rep. Todd Akin (R-Wildwood) contains a voice that connects Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) to President Barack Obama. The voice references McCaskill's support of the Affordable Care Act and her endorsement of the president in 2008. 

An ad from McCaskill takes a similar approach in connecting her opponent to the 2012 presidential campaign. The ad begins by asking the question, "Is Todd Akin fit to serve in the Senate?" before playing a response from Mitt Romney, in which Romney urges Akin to drop out of the race.  

We have watched the ads in the U.S. Senate campaign (and plenty of others) in Missouri, whether it was on television or before YouTube clips. But now the general election is only one day away. 

Tell us: So, as the election season comes to a close, we're holding a poll of our own on Patch. Which political ad will you be happy to see go, and why? Let us know in the comments.

RD: there you go again, throwing the H word around again. Looks like that's the only way you think you can get your point across. Keep your tissue and give it to your loved ones. Caff: I'm certainly not pretending anything. Just cuz I don't bow down to your bullying and nastiness doesn't prove your non-sensical point.

" Just cuz I don't bow down to your bullying and nastiness doesn't prove your non-sensical point." I at no point "bullied" or was "nasty" to you. I looked back at what I wrote, and can't find anything that qualifies. What, exactly, are you talking about?

So, when do we start to see the 2014 midterm ads? Or the ones to "Draft Hillary"? I swear that this morning on one of the talking head shows on a 24 hour cable channel, they were discussing whether or not Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the Democratic favorite in 2016. Not in jest, like a Governor Chris Cristie / President Barack Obama ticket in 2016, but serious analysis of the chances that she would force the other Democrats out of the way before the primary season starts if she announced her intention to run. It never frickin' ends anymore, does it?
