Is Alabama’s Dale Peterson’s viral campaign ad the best political spot ever?

Newsweek, Hot Air and Time think so…

No one seems to be quite sure if the spot is for realsies- Peterson leans on his Vietnam tenure as well as a rifle, very sincerely- but the clip has nearly half a million views. Regardless of the election’s outcome, Peterson has succeeded at mounting the most viewed campaign for Alabama Agricultural Commissioner the world has ever seen.
