This post is not necessarily meant to be humorous, but in some instances, it is. Funny in that way that you can't believe this shit kind of funny, but not really funny like roll around on the ground funny. I usually don't get too political on this site, but after viewing the following crapola, I had to comment!
I have been catching all the political ads in the race for retiring New Mexico Senator Pete Domenici's Senate seat. Some words that come to mind for the two Republicans, Heather (I cried on national TV about a nipple seen for 1.5 seconds) Wilson, and Steve Pearce-yuck! Shameful! Disgusting!
Here's Heather-with that weird voice of hers, sniff sniff-sorry! The super-fleeting glimpse of a nipple makes me want to...sniff sniff-Bawl! I am just abuzz about all this!
These two are trying to "outconservative" each other in their respective ads. In this state, who doesn't know these two were about as far right as they can go?! Certainly the progressive-minded citizens of our state have long known that both Pearce and Wilson have steadfastly voted for all the miserable Bush military and economic policies, and now they are both-instead of being individuals and independent of this administration, trying to show just how far to the right they can get. They both have ads that display "conservative" and "conservative Republican" like its some kind of damn badge.
Steve Pearce's ads are the worst though. He attacks Wilson for being "liberal"! Calling Heather Wilson liberal is like calling a chihuahua an alligator... or something along those lines! Just dumb! He still thinks health care in this country is ok the way it is-he denigrates Wilson for voting for SCHIPP, calling it "socialized medicine."
I don't know how this next clip was obtained. It seems like a hidden camera type of thing, but I don't know why the reporters or investigators would have to do something like that-Pearce is pretty proud of his anti-health care views and probably would give a normal interview. Or proclaim it on the steps of the Capital! The information on the bottom of the screen contradicts what he is saying, although it is unfortunately difficult to read.
Here's one of his dumb campaign ads:
Many of the ads for races in this state are similar, with the ads proudly displaying the "conservative Republican" banner. Here is Monte "choir boy" Newman's videos. (I think they play in succession)
Ed Tinsley, running against Monte Newman in the 2nd District race for Congress also is trying to be Mr. Conservative. This ad is also nauseating.
Here is an antidote for all this far-right-wingin' nonsense! David Cross with his take on flags and flag-waving!
Here is almost the same David Cross flag theme (a little shorter) that you can download. Unfortunately this copy is censored! Boo! It's almost the same effect though! Pure hilarity! Enjoy! *(Left-click on the link then click on "Download"-Mac users just click-I guess!)
