For most of the 2016 election, there has been no light, only darkness.

This political ad is a wonderful exception to the severely depressing trend. Gerald Daugherty, a Republican from Texas, is seeking to be reelected as Travis County Commissioner. As the ad and his wife's raised eyebrows show, he's committed to the job, at the cost of alienating everyone around him.

Watch as Daugherty obsessively mouths off facts and statistics about such juicy topics as the state of the county's motorways.

"Gerald really doesn't have any hobbies," his wife says to introduce the video.

Daugherty then suggests that he wants to do more to help his wife around the house, where he'd be — gulp — closer to her. 

"Please re-elect Gerald. Please," she pleads.
