Oh, yes, my friends, racism is still alive and kicking the soccer ball down the proverbial field. That’s why we never run out of stories. Sad, but true.

This nice little ditty comes to on behalf of US Senate candidate and charming Republican Pete Hoekstra, who decided to run a Super Bowl commercial in which a young Asian woman riding her bicycle down a country road (surrounded by rice patties and speaking broken English, of course) looks into the camera and slams his Michigan opponent.

“Thank you, Michigan Senator Debbie Spend-It-Now. Debbie spends so much American money. You borrow more and more from us. Your economy get very weak. Ours get very good. We take your jobs. Thank you, Debbie Spend-It-Now,
says the Asian woman into the camera.
