Ummm, Wow, I’m At a Loss For Words

Maybe some of the rest of you have already heard about this ad for the special Congressional election for California’s 36th district (or have the El Ay Stinquers seen it?) but when I saw this my mouth opened a few inches and a wheezing noise of shock came out. The ad, attacking Democratic candidate Janice Hahn, was created and aired by an independent expenditure group called “Turned Right USA” in support of GOP candidate Craig Huey.

If you can’t make it all the way through it, the ad features Ms. Hahn as a stripper performing for two black gangsters who are rapping repeatedly, “Give us your cash bitch,” because apparently Ms. Hahn had supported a gang intervention group working with youth in LA, and she had the audacity to call for two LAPD officers to be removed from their Watts beat after numerous complaints about them harassing people in the community.

Get ready for a lot more of this shit in 2012, kids, thanks to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision.


That’s so fucking horrible that it’s like a parody by Colbert or South Park. The guys in the video should be ashamed of themselves. (The AK was innocent and pulled into the video against its will.)

Mrs RML says that instead of healing the racial divide, that Obama’s election just brought racism out in the open.

It should seal the election for Janice Hahn, a friend of mine.

@Dodgerblue: Good, I’m sending her a donation today because of this.
@redmanlaw: I’m curious who the two actors are.

@SanFranLefty: Good. The Repub candidate says he’s shocked, just shocked, by the ad.

The “suck it, McCain-Feingold” at the end says it all.

Republican youth outreach program, probably as successful as “abstinence only” sex education. In a colossal irony, it takes Ms. Hahn’ advice in the end: “It does take a different kind of person to speak the language…”

@Dodgerblue and @Mistress Cynica: Yep and yep. Thus proving my point. Buckle your seatbelts, and I suppose we need to tie our jaws so they’re not hitting the desk on a regular basis.
