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.
When the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee pulled their funding of Terri Lynn Land’s campaign a couple of weeks ago, I wasn’t expecting the Michigan GOP to start phoning it in and farming out their efforts on her behalf to seventh graders. But that is apparently exactly what they did.
I can’t believe this ad does anything more than make people go, “WTF?” and then LOL at the GOP.
After watching this puerile example of Republican lameitude, one thing is very certain: MRP Chair Bobby Schostak is completely inept at his job.
