I spend so long mired in the morass of US politics that sometimes I forget how to analyse or assimilate political appeals as a citizen of the UK.
So help me out, my friends. Cast your British eyes upon this (NSFW) attack ad against Janice Hahn (a Californian Democrat running for Congress), and let me know what you think. I mean, I think it's nauseating in its racism (though that may also be motion sickness). But maybe I've just gone native.
Seriously, I haven't felt so ill since the car chases in Bourne Ultimatum.
And yes, it's a real ad. Really real. So really real that the people who released it turn out to be sharing a PO Box with a campaign consultancy firm that works for Hahn's opponent.
I think I might be sick after all...
P.S. I realise that this isn't really important in the great scheme of things, but man, that rap is terrible.
