Picture the Marlboro Man riding out of the west, healthy, rugged and free . . . until you recall two of the iconic Marlboro men, Wayne McLaren and David McLean, died of lung cancer.

But the deadliest Marlboro Man phony ad is the one that portrays politician Rick Perry as a cowboy. The ads are clearly rustling the Reagan brand and marketing it as his own.
