Same difference.

An ad from the usual teabagger suspects showing up on our television sets every five minutes today:

Published on Apr 1, 2013

Timing is everything, even without a sense of irony.

Voice: When I make a state tax payment I expect for it to go to the amount that I owe and to provide essential state services. [speaker revealed to be really bad actor number one] Now I see that a subpoena has been issued against the Department of Revenue because they’re collecting personal information on gun owners and sending it to the Obama Administration.

Really bad actor number two: Sounds like Governor Nixon isn’t doing his job to protect us from Obama’s reach.

Really bad actor number one: When state agencies don’t do their jobs it’s [speaker revealed to be Carl Bearden (r), right wingnut lobbyist and former state legislator] all of our state taxpayer dollars that’s wasted.

Really bad actor number two: That’s outrageous. But what can I do?

Really bad actor number one/Carl Bearden (r): You can go to….and tell Governor Nixon to stop taking aim at Missouri taxpayers.

Why, yes, he is.

“…When I make a state tax payment I expect for it to go to the amount that I owe…”

No, everyone else expects it to be for any random amount, Captain Obvious. Was this commercial written by a twelve year old? Just asking.

“…Sounds like Governor Nixon isn’t doing his job to protect us from Obama’s reach…”

Who knew that Barack Obama was the supreme leader of North Korea? I didn’t know that. Did you know that?

Taxes. Check.

Gun paranoia. Check.

Evil Obama. Check.

Incoherence. Check.
