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.

@KindforCongress, @Barrow4GA, Collin Peterson, @ericswalwell, & @BishopforCongress’s dirty Koch money.

Note: I do not actually consider Koch Industry [and employees: see Update below] campaign contributions to be in point of fact ‘dirty.’  And neither do the following Democrats!

  • Barrow, John (D-GA)
  • Bishop, Sanford (D-GA)
  • Matheson, Jim (D-UT)
  • Kind, Ron (D-WI)
  • Peterson, Collin (D-MN)
  • Swalwell, Eric (D-CA)

Screenshot here, just in case.
