From one of my least favorite Congressmen (and even though it's a long list he's probably Top 10), Pete Joekstra (R-Scared White People, North of Mason-Dixon Line Division).

Joekstra polluted the airwaves in MI on Super Bowl Sunday running this ad before and during the game.

There are a lot of things offensive with this ad. First, it's obviously offensive to Asian-Americans, and specifically Chinese-Americans. Second, the actress seemed a little confused...if you're going to do racial stereotyping, do it right. She is a little too polished, not nearly FOB enough.

Finally, it's hilarious that the GOP would criticize Dems on spending, since 2000 they took a surplus and turned it into a $15T deficit.

In typical GOP fashion, the original version has disabled both comments and voting. The version I've embedded does. So, you know what to do there, although I expect the link to get pulled before too long.

I'll leave you with this little offering from Bill Maher, proving again the GOP is the crazy party.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
