If April showers bring May flowers, then May campaign ads bring out a swath of good ol’ boys with a touch of crazy.
With primary elections just around the corner, inner-party campaigns are swinging for the fences. Candidates on the same sides of battle lines are laying into each other about who is more American, whose voting record is more attune to party issues, and who could more accurately represent the constituency. Or, if you’re Dale Peterson — Alabama Agriculture Commissioner GOP candidate — you’re just trying to make sure thugs and criminals aren’t keeping voters in the dark about just how much money an Ag Commish controls. How much money, you ask? Five billion dollars, that’s how much.
According to this amazing display of Americanism, Dale Peterson has been a farmer, a businessman, a cop, a Marine during Vietnam, and, as I imagine, a patient at St. Mary’s Hospital for the Clinically Intense.
Whew. Good luck, Alabama. Your agriculture is about to get super serious, and possibly ethnically insensitive.
