AZ Democratic Party Has A Great Sense Of Humor. AZ-GOP? Not So Much.

Some things should simply not ever be done. Others should be done more often.

A friend of mine, Sheila Healy, is the Executive Director of the Arizona Democratic Party. Sheila is having way too much fun. Lookie here —

And then they’ve had this little bit of unintentional humor on a clearly not-funny subject:

Ann Kirkpatrick is running against John McCain and the race appears to be a dead heat.

So the Arizona Republican Party decides to take it to the limit. They came out with a Wanted posted of Ann Kirkpatrick. Here ya go —-

See those bullet holes around the edge of her picture? You know, in the same state where Gabby Giffords was shot.

No, you do not. You do NOT see those bullet holes. No, sireee. No bullet holes. Close your damn eyes and you cannot see them. See?

Arizona Republican Party spokesperson Matt Specht explains it to you:

Specht in a telephone interview Friday said that round splotches on the poster Kirkpatrick labeled as bullet holes were intended at conveying a weathered image of the Old West.

“They could be just holes, whether it was something that was nailed to a tree or wall,” he said.

Well, there ya go.

The Kirkpatrick campaign has a link to the template the GOP used for the poster and it is described as “old and dirty paper with bullet holes.”

What bullet holes? There’s no bullet holes. Here’s the poster on the Arizona GOP website.
