There is something arresting about this campaign ad from the NRCC, which indeed draws on everything in the title.
Now, I will not lie to you: nowhere does the ad claim that John Barrow has ever done cocaine with a monkey. And I will freely admit that the title of my post may cause people to wonder whether John Barrow has ever done cocaine with a monkey. In fact, I will even cheerfully concede that the truth – that John Barrow ‘merely’ likes to vote to fund stuff* that the government probably shouldn’t be funding until it funds all the other, more important stuff – may feel, ah, somewhat prosaic. Nonetheless… there’s just something about a minimalist political ad about a woman with a monkey on her shoulder talking about how John Barrow likes to spend taxpayer dollars on programs involving monkeys and cocaine.
In a statement, NRCC spokeswoman Katie Prill took specific aim at Barrow’s vote for the $830 billion stimulus package.
“You know Congressman John Barrow has been in Washington too long when he thinks it’s okay to vote for President Obama’s failed $830 billion stimulus program which studied how monkey’s responded to unfairness and how they act while on cocaine,” Prill said. “It’s time for Barrow to go because Georgia families can’t afford his wasteful ways in Washington.”
If you’re wondering why the stimulus funded giving monkeys cocaine… shoot, you’re not the only one wondering that, now are you? I for one have never heard a plausible, or sane, answer that did not involve the phrase wholesale abuse of taxpayer money by pork-addicted Democratic Congressmen.

You might be forgiven for thinking any of those were on the stage last night at the GOP Debate when, in his frenzied and repeated attempts to destroy Jeb, Donald Trump went 9/11 troof about George W.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Look, this isn’t a political discussion. It’s an aesthetic one. I will be called petty here, but this needs to be addressed: It was ill-advised for Donald Trump to re-apply a spray tan so close to a debate where he would be standing in front of a red background. He looked like John Boehner blushing. Look at that. LOOK | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Inbetween a number of nasty (and at this point tiresome) exchanges between Cruz and Rubio, one guy on the stage stood calm and collected in the face of constant attacks and immature interruptions from Donald Trump. Apart from one criticism of Kasich on Medicaid expansion, Bush stayed focused on the prize, and came out the clear winner. Unlike the | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES This was amazing. John Dickerson is supposed to be the debate moderator and instead he starts getting into a debate with Ted Cruz regarding the appointment of Supreme Court justices during an election year. Cruz rightly pointed out it’s been precedent for 80 years not to do this. Dickerson then started arguing with Cruz about when Justice Anthony Kennedy | Read More »
