We'll Make An Ad For The Worst Republican You Know-- Just Tell Us Who


Two progressive political action committees, Blue America and Americans For America, have teamed up to do a series of video ads highlighting the worst the GOP has to offer. Last week we unveiled our first in the series, highlighting Sarah Palin, Rand Paul and John Boehner (above). Yecchhh, huh? Many say there are even worse-- or, at least, just as bad. Would you like to vote on who we should include in the next video in our series?

This week we're considering five more-- and there'll be others between now and November, of course. First up, though are five especially unsavory Republicans, 4 House incumbents-- Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Ken Calvert (R-CA), Virginia Foxx (R-NC), and Steve King (R-IA)-- plus one challenger for an open seat, Karl Rove protégé and disgraced ex-U.S. Attorney Tim Griffin.

Here's how you vote: just make a donation on the page dedicated to the culprit of your choice. If you click on the picture below, you go directly to their page. Because we're progressives and not conservatives, a one dollar donation equals the same single vote as a one hundred dollar donation. Now, one of the great aspects of this is that each one of these exceptionally bad Republicans has an exceptionally good Democrat running for the seat. Believe me, that isn't easy to find. I mean, Republican John Boozman in Arkansas, for example, is just terrible but his Democratic opponent, Blanche Lincoln, is just as bad. We won't be offering any Hobbesian choices like that. In Arkansas, to stick with that state as the example, the woman running against Griffin is state Senate Majority Leader and proven progressive Joyce Elliott.

So, we're happy to announce that all of the money raised through this little contest will be used to help voters understand that there's a difference between the Republican and the Democrat running for the seat that gets the most votes. Who do you think is the worst of the worst?

Hands down. Virginia Foxx, 5th District of North Carolina. She's an outrage and massive embarrassment to all her constituents and everyone who has to watch her rants on the House floor. Her Democratic challenger is hot on her heels, and he could really use this boost from an ad.

Virginia Foxx has some stiff competition, but she combines Bachman's lunacy with a Karl Rovian hatefulness and disdain for others. I live in her district, and this website is the only place she'll ever get my vote.

Rick Perry. Incumbent governor of Texas.
Pro death penalty, pro establishment of religion, pro creationism, anti abortion, anti HPV vaccines, pro private business when it benefits him, anti private business when it doesn't, pro secession, and running for a fourth term.
