Yesterday, our colleague Stephen Lemons put together his list of the top 10 Arizona political ads of 2012.
If you've turned on a television set over the past several month, then you've probably seen several of these -- over, and over, and over again, if you gaze into the TV often.
Some of these political ads have been more entertaining than others, for example, state Senator Ron Gould -- who lost his primary race to Congressman Paul Gosar -- who took a copy of the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act," also known as "Obamacare," and blasted it to hell with a shotgun.
There hasn't quite been an ad in the state that's quite as nuts as that of former Alabama Agriculture Commissioner candidate Dale Peterson, but there's been some quality entertainment.
So, check out Lemons' top 10, and cast your vote below for the best ad of 2012:
