Pete Hoekstra's Inflammatory Ad



WOW.

This is the most recent political ad from former Congressman Pete Hoekstra (R), who is running against incumbent Senator Debbie Stabenow (D) for U.S. Senate in Michigan.

Jazz Shaw at HotAir thinks that this is the "worst political ad of 2012", and that the racial overtones are unavoidable:
The team is describing it as satire, but there’s absolutely no way this doesn’t just fan the flames and come off as racist. Particularly since the actress in question apparently doesn’t even have an accent. Watch for yourself. This seems destined to jump into the history books alongside, “I’m not a witch.”
Indeed. I wouldn't be surprised if a public apology is in the works.
