(Newser) – Michael Moore and MoveOn.org put together a pro-Obama ad, and it’s predictably controversial. It features a message from the Greatest Generation to the GOP and Mitt Romney: “If your voter suppression throughout this beautiful country enables Romney to oust Barack Obama, we will burn this motherf***er down,” promises one seemingly sweet elderly woman. Some none-too-pleased reactions:

  • “Suffice it to say, the ad is more Michael Moore than Greatest Generation,” writes Eliana Johnson in the National Review.
  • PJ Gladnick calls it “the most vile campaign video ever made” on Newsbusters, and dubs both Moore and MoveOn “definitely deranged.”
  • On Herman Cain’s CainTV.com, Robert Laurie agrees it is definitely the “most base, unpleasant campaign ad ever,” calling Moore “America’s premiere hack propagandist” and congratulating him for “dragging the election down to his bottom-feeding standards.”
In other celebrity-political news, Essence reports that Mary J. Blige, Q-Tip, and Julianne Moore star in another new pro-Obama ad. This one is from Planned Parenthood, and features the tagline, “Yes We Plan.”
