Michigan Senate candidate Pete Hoekstra is getting slammed for this weird ad. Sure, it’s offensive, but it’s also dumb. It contrasts Debbie “Spend It Now” Stabenow with Pete “Spend It Not” Hoekstra. Get it? Sort of a play on words. Isn’t that clever? Maybe for a five-year old.
These Republicans must plan on harvesting a bumper crop of stupid white guys to vote for them. They’re going out of their way to alienate everybody else.
Perhaps at his campaign events Mr. Spend It Not can screen “Bugs Bunny Nips the Nips” and really fire up his base.
