Rep. John Barrow (D, Georgia-12), monkeys, and cocaine.

There is something arresting about this campaign ad from the NRCC, which indeed draws on everything in the title.

Now, I will not lie to you: nowhere does the ad claim that John Barrow has ever done cocaine with a monkey.  And I will freely admit that the title of my post may cause people to wonder whether John Barrow has ever done cocaine with a monkey.  In fact, I will even cheerfully concede that the truth – that John Barrow ‘merely’ likes to vote to fund stuff* that the government probably shouldn’t be funding until it funds all the other, more important stuff – may feel, ah, somewhat prosaic.  Nonetheless… there’s just something about a minimalist political ad about a woman with a monkey on her shoulder talking about how John Barrow likes to spend taxpayer dollars on programs involving monkeys and cocaine.
