In one of the funniest political ads of this season, Gerald Daugherty's wife makes a public plea for constituents to re-elect her husband -- simply to save her own sanity.

The commercial implies that Mr. Daugherty is always working. And to Mrs. Daugherty, the endless stream of facts, figures, and ideas to fix their Texas community is exhausting.

"Please re-elect Gerald. Please!" she pleads, after her husband mentions that he "enjoys helping out around the house."
