GOP ad uses Italian-American stereotypes against Greek-American candidate

The National Republican Senatorial Committee is out with an ad that paints Democrat Alexi Giannoulias (above) with unflattering stereotypes of Italian-Americans.

Never mind that Giannoulias, a candidate for a U.S. Senate seat from Illinois, is of Greek extraction. The fact that his first name ends in a vowel is enough, I suppose, to make him seem exotically sinister in the eyes of the booboisie.

For more about this peculiar ad, which is intended to benefit Republican Senate candidate Mark Kirk (whose name has comparatively few vowels), click HERE.

    Are you out of mind?…that is rhetorical, of course you are. Is there something not factual about the information? They can not relate Giannoulias to fictional character that happens to be Italian, because he is not Italian? So it would OK if he was Italian. The reason for using the voice over is that he seems to have ties to the mafia, which happens to be Italian.

  2. Blagojevich actually has a Serbian background, and Tony Rezko is actually from Syria. So they only people that think this ad is unflattering to Italian-Americans are idiot liberals. The simple fact is that Giannoulias has a history of incompetence and financing criminals.

    If you’re looking for a terrible ad from the GOP, check out the “demon sheep” ad that Carly Fiorina campaign put out.

    That demon sheep ad was genius. Harness the power of the viral video.
