Give Virginia Representative Tom Perriello credit for trying to show voters that he understands their needs. At least, that's what we think he's going for in this ad, which shows him covered in dust, stepping in manure and throwing hot coffee in his own face. Jobs and the economy will undoubtedly be the biggest issues for voters this fall, and Perriello wants the viewers to know that he's brought home the bacon for the state's Fifth Congressional District. His accident-prone parade through blue collar work sites might be endearing to some, but these are serious times. C'mon, Tom. Save the slapstick for the debates.
