Theatrics in Politics

The theatrics in politics are becoming a little overblown, and this years republican race does not appear it will stray from the norm. These two ads are from the Perry and Romney campaigns, and even though both are internet spots, I can't see them ever being played on TV. They both are overly serious - far too comparable to movie trailers - and the fact that they mix both seriousness and claims that can often be far from factual is a little bit laughable for me. I wouldn't doubt that these are somewhat effective, but they just seem to over the top to me. I think this makes the candidate less believable.
