Herman Cain Rabbit Ad Glorifies Animal Cruelty? (Video)

WARNING:  The video below contains implied graphic images of violence towards rabbits

At what point does implied animal abuse cross the line?  Herman Cain was a Republican candidate for the presidential run before pulling out last December.  While he has been quiet the last several months, this month he started to resurface with a series of ads with the intention of illustrating the dangers of "our economy on stimulus".
