Senate candidate Roy Blunt's campaign ad:

To his credit, Blunt removed it:

Blunt told the reporter he didn’t know about the ad, and it disappeared from the campaign’s website moments later. A spokesman subsequently told the reporter that ad was removed because it “didn’t reflect the right tone.” The ad has re-appeared, but now shows pictures of Carnahan with President Obama instead of graphic Ground Zero damage. (HT: Fired Up! Missouri)

But I suspect this ad is just the tip of the iceberg for November, particularly when it comes to candidates lower on the political food chain (Exhibit A).
