PA-10: Mama Mia, what were Republicans thinking with this new PA-10 ad?

The next time a Republican tries to tell you that the party of Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan isn’t the preserve of xenophobes and bigots, point them to this new ad by the National Republican Congressional Committee taking aim at Democrat Eugene DePasquale.

I’m not going to bother unpacking any of the political claims raised in this breathtakingly stupid digital spot that began circulating this week.

Instead, I’ll just point you to its assertion that, in addition to being a tax-and-spend liberal, DePasquale, the Democratic candidate in central Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional District, possesses a last name that is “tough to spell.”

Let that one sink in.

DePasquale.

There, just nailed it. That wasn’t particularly difficult at all.

Try it again.

DePasquale.

We have a Repub running in PA-55 (state house) who is a stunt man. Really. I'm not sure how that qualifies you for public office. He recently ran an ad showing himself on fire. I kid you not.

6. Well, it's anti-Italian for sure, but here at DU

Mafia is thrown around all the time and a poster here referred to Sxaramucci as a “goombah” and when reported, it was not hidden

7. It's not like DePasquale wasn't elected statewide twice

as Auditor General.

8. I wonder if he's related to the DePasquale family of the Philadelphia Orchestra?

Buncha great string players.
