Florida Republican Candidate's Ad Depicts Obama As Captain of Slave Ship
Portraying our first African-American president as the captain of a slave ship in a political ad probably isn't the world's best idea. Mark Oxner, a Republican running for Congress in the Orlando area, did just that. It's not so much offensive, really, as it is laughably terrible.
Get it? Obama is enslaving our children with debt.
Redistricting will probably result in a new congressional district covering parts of Orlando. It will likely lean Democrat, and our old pal Alan Grayson will be running. So is this Oxner fellow. It appears this race could very well be a hilariously horrible one to watch.
