I’m not sure how I missed this, but the Washington Post recently launched a political ad campaign database called Mixed Messages. It looks like the Post will be trying to catalogue all the political ads produced by the various candidates/national committees this cycle.

They’ve done a really nice job with this. The database allows you to view ads based on all sorts of criteria such as state, tone, issue, candidate, etc. (see below). Only thing I would like to see is a little code that would allow web developers/bloggers to imbed the videos on their own site. And maybe a better interface for actually playing the videos. Of course, I also don’t have to pay the Post’s bandwidth bill.
