Dem for Georgia Gov. to GOP: Enough With the Insane Microchips (Video)
July 7, 2010
(ChattahBox)—Roy Barnes, the Democratic candidate for governor in Georgia, has a new campaign ad out today. The novel ad points out that industry can hardly take the state seriously as a site for investment and job creation, when state Republican lawmakers spend their time pandering to the extreme right-wing base of their party, by passing insane bills against microchip implantation in residents’ brains against their will.
The narrator in Barne’s campaign ad, notes that his beloved state has become a national laughing-stock:
“It’s hard for industry to take us seriously when the Legislature attempts to outlaw stem cell research, passes bills about microchips in the brain, and talks about seceding from the Union.”
“A governor can create jobs by selling the advantages of Georgia to firms looking for a home,” the ad says, but “we can’t bring jobs to Georgia with the rest of the country laughing at us.”
