It's an arch example, but one you're sure to hear repeated -- a bit more subtly, I suspect -- in congressional races around the country.
Republican challenger Vernon Robinson has a new campaign ad alleging that incumbent Brad Miller (D-NC) "voted to allow ... illegals to burn the American flag while waving the Mexican flag."
Surely you remember the "amnesty for flag burning illegals" bill?
And it gets worse. According to the ad, Miller "sponsored a bill to let American homosexuals bring their foreign homosexual lovers to this country on a visa."
It concludes, "(i)f Miller had his way America would be nothing but one big fiesta for illegal aliens and homosexuals. But if you elect Vernon Robinson, that party's over."
I bet he's soft on pedophile illegals, too. Somewhere, Lester Maddox and Orval Faubus are offering hearty attaboys.
Listen to the full ad here. Note the oh-so-clever use of a mariachi band in the background.
