Dome pokes fun a political advertising a good bit -- but for Richard Morgan's new radio advertisement, no words can do it justice. Morgan, the former Republican House co-speaker ousted and disowned by many in his own party, is running for state insurance commissioner.

The 30-second ad, which launched a week ago, features an upbeat woman telling voters about Morgan while hip-hop elevator music plays in the background. The best lines: "Richard Morgan is not your typical guy in politics. Richard Morgan rates high on the scale of awesomeness." (Not making this up.)

"Richard Morgan is an amazing friend. (Shows picture of Morgan hugging two dogs in YouTube version.) And Morgan is "nothing short of a fairytale dream come true for us." Take a listen above.
