And the award for the most moronic political ad this season goes to…

There is a school of thought (apparently) that outlandish, even stupidly dumb ads are good because they get you to watch, sort of like a high-speed train derailing in front of you. I get that. I don’t necessarily agree with it, but I get it.

So, there’s stupidly dumb and then there’s this hot mess of moronic childishness from the Michigan Republican Party:

I’m not going to get too much into the details regarding their accusations. Quickly, it turns out some bad guys donated to Peters campaign and as soon as he found out they were bad guys, he returned the money to one of them and donated the other bad guy’s money to a charity.…

UPDATED: Are Michigan Republicans so flush with money they don’t have to target mailings? Or are they just dumb?

Yesterday I got a full-size, thick paper glossy mailing from Terri Lynn Land’s campaign. I also got TWO from Bill Schuette’s campaign, both different.

Now, most Eclectablog readers know what my political leaners are and that they are decidedly NOT leaning in the direction of the GOP. In fact, I am an elected Precinct Delegate and on the Executive Board for the Washtenaw County Democratic Party as co-Vice Chair for Precinct Organizing. I was also a delegate to the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

You should see my Democratic score in the Voter Activation Network (VAN) database. It’s off the charts.

In other words, it’s pretty much not a secret that I am about as hardcore a Democrat as you are likely to find and that doesn’t even count the hundreds of thousands of words I write each month celebrating Democratic candidates and ideals while bashing on Republicans.…

The Michigan Republican Party is looking for a few good young men and women to exploit and take one for the team!

Do you enjoy wearing super-secret spy glasses to secretly record Democrats being Democrats? Do you have mad skillz posing as a CNN reporter? Can you pull off pretending to be a Schauer supporter and offering to volunteer for a statewide Democratic gubernatorial campaign? Are you willing to be thrown under the bus by the Michigan Republican Party if you get busted doing any of this stuff, possibly ending any chance at a career in politics?

If so, the Michigan GOP wants YOU!!!

The Michigan Republican Party is currently looking for Interns!

Successful applicants will have the opportunity to witness and learn the inner-workings of the Michigan Republican Party at our office headquarters in Lansing, work out of our other regional office locations, meet elected officials, attend special “behind-the-scene” events, and more.

This right here is how low the GOP has sunk: Fundraising with “I miss ‘W'” t-shirts.

I … I … I can’t even …

Yes, it’s a fundraiser. Centered around how much the GOP misses George W. Bush.

What was it? The wars against an enemy that didn’t truly threaten us? The catastrophic tax cuts that favored the uber-wealthy and blew a gigantic hole in our budget? The Great Recession? What? What exactly is that you miss?…

Delta County GOP names Republicans like Tim Walberg who “Blatantly Surrendered to the Homosexual & Stealth Jihad Agenda”

AND THEY DIDN’T EVEN USE ALL CAPS!!!

LOLOLOL. You might think you have some rabid tea partiers in your area, tea partiers that are the worst of the worst, more steeped in vitriolic tea than anybody else’s tea partiers. You might think you have the most over-the-top, unhinged, detached from reality tea partiers of all of the unmoored tea partiers that ever were, that are now, and ever will be.

You would be wrong.

Those tea partiers are running the Facebook page of the Delta County Republican Party. Delta County, the political powerhouse of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

To wit:

In Case You Are Not Keeping Record: The Following Are the Republicans Who Have Blatantly Surrendered to the Homosexual and Stealth Jihad Agenda (By Virtue of their attacks on Dave Agema)

Republican National Chair Reince Priebus

Michigan Republican Party Chair Bobby Schostak

Michigan Attorney General.

Reform now or live to regret it

If you have nothing to hide, what’s with the pants?

Oregon’s senior senator Ron Wyden has spent years trying to make Americans aware of the secret surveillance law being written by a secret court made up of judges all appointed by one man — Chief Justice John Roberts.

Wyden along his colleague Mark Udall attempted to get Congress to make that court’s decisions public. Congress refused to do so. Wyden tried to get the director of National Intelligence James Clapper to admit the scope of National Security Agency surveillance. He refused to do so.

And most Americans remained ignorant of how we may be spying on ourselves and the rest of the world — until Edward Snowden leaked what he’d taken during his time working as a contractor for the NSA.…

Yes, Ted Cruz IS eligible to be President of the United States — encourage him to run and help end the GOP

Don’t even get any of that birther stink on you

Ted Cruz’s mother was a U.S. citizen when he was born in Calgary. This makes him a “natural born citizen” and eligible to become president of the United States. For this same reason, Barack Obama would be eligible to be president even if he were born abroad — he wasn’t.

“The weight of scholarly legal and historical opinion appears to support the notion that ‘natural born Citizen’ means one who is entitled under the Constitution or laws of the United States to U.S. citizenship ‘at birth’ or ‘by birth,’ including any child born ‘in’ the United States, the children of United States citizens born abroad, and those born abroad of one citizen parents who has met U.S.…
