Whose Political Ad Are You Happy to See Disappear?

With the election finally here, 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 grew 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.
