As the Colorado Senate campaign starts to hot up, GOP hopeful Bobblehead Shaffer has launched a new TV ad telling us how he’s the change Colorado needs. It’s a pretty spot, which features this scenic shot of Mt. McKinley towering majestically over … ummm, hold the phone…
Sweet fancy Jesus, does this braying jackass even know what state he lives in? The staff at The Onion are probably sitting around right now wondering how they’re going to top this one.
We need a change, all right. Specifically, we need to change to a candidate who can find Colorado on a map. Meanwhile, Alaska, you’re welcome to him.
UPDATE: Anchorage mayor Mark Begich, himself a US Senate candidate, responds here:
“While Alaskans can understand why Bob Schaffer would promote our beautiful mountain, I hope he doesnâ€™t expect Alaska to cede North Americaâ€™s highest peak to the State of Colorado.”
Tell you what – we’ll trade you Colorado Springs for it.
UPDATE 2: The ad has, not surprisingly, been removed from YouTube.
