So why a squirrel? Consider it a money-saving move on the GOP's part. This isn't the first time the party has used this particular squirrel suit. Back in 2008, the GOP introduced it as part of a campaign against ACORN, the voter registration group that would eventually close after a conservative backlash. Link

Does that refer to Jeb or Hillary?

Considering the brain trust that is the GOP, that ad was not bad.

I was expecting much worse.

They're just trying to get the Furry vote.

That's just awesome.

The first guy tried to sell stickers reading "Another Clinton would be cuckoo" while wearing a chicken suit.

He's still in the hospital

The Furry from the Romney campaign was delayed:

Pathetic.

Which, sadly, is a step up for the GOP.

That's it, I'm voting for Romney.

That's an insult to 12-year-old boys. Most 6th-grade boys are Rhodes Scholars compared to these dinks.

Careful what you wish for. Romney's resurrectable and there is noise being made about running him in 2016. Ever notice Romney's never at his retirement house with the car elevator?

Has the GOP ever been FOR something? I mean besides tax cuts for the wealthy plus wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Vietnam?

Seriously. What is the GOP for?

We know the squirrel is anti-Hillary. And we know that they are against everything Obama is for. And we know they are anti-abortion blah blah blah. What is the GOP for?

The United States, Iraq, and Iran are cooperating. There has NEVER been a better time to strike.

For the record, most Furries would likely vote Democratic...

Seeing as were very... gay friendly.

of course, squirrels are nuts. trying to bury them every where. i otter know.

Maybe they can have the squirrel debate an empty chair at their convention.

War in Iran?  Cutting foreign aid, thereby removing any leverage we have in those countries (Egypt, etc)?  Making sure gays can't marry?

I don't think I've ever met a Republican furry. Considering most furries are outright and openly gay, as well, they would have to be either self-hating or the "Log Cabin" type.

I actually found that mildly amusing.

I work in Harvard Square and Hillary hit town today to do at book signing at the Harvard Book Store (not affiliated with Harvard University, by the way; their bookstore is the Harvard Coop), which is exactly 75 feet from my office. On Monday nights I go to a drawing session on Mt. Auburn Street at a place called the Democracy Center (one of the last bastions of hippie funkiness in the Square, along with Revolution Books and the old Italian cobbler with the Art Deco storefront), so I had plenty of opportunity to be inconvenienced by Mrs. Clinton's visit. For someone who's not running for president she has an awfully big bus, swathed in patriotic supergraphics and with her signature nine feet tall on the side. But I guess if Sarah Palin can drive around like that and then not run for president, why not Hillary? There was some amateurish singing of what sounded like a homemade campaign song going on somewhere nearby--essentially political fan fiction..  At 6:30 the line started on Mass Ave., went down Linden Street, across Bow, and back up Plympton Street, a good three city blocks. When I left drawing at 9:15 there were still some people on Plympton. If Hillary signed all those books her hand must be in a cast by now.

I can't understand this attitude. The woman puts her pantsuit on one leg at a time like the rest of us.

I have no problem with this.  A fool and his money and all that.

I'm tempted to create my own conservative Republican nonsense just to sell to those suckers, even if it's as silly as a large band-aid with a purple heart with "Never forget!".   How about bumper sticker with a Mitt Romney face with a 'shopped Reagan hairline and wrinkled neck?  I've got a strong feeling I'll be able to retire young with that.

The squirrel had to get an office job after Republicans chopped down all the trees.

Also, there's a red agent working from inside the GOP!

So instead of this squirrel being so negative against Hillary, instead can be be all gunslinging, pink slime + HCFS stirring, fracking/oil drilling.

I admit, it falls short of the propaganda and stridency level of the Democrat's "Push grandma off a cliff in her wheelchair," but it has its moments.

Given that Hillary already GETS secret service protection, wouldn't we SAVE money by having her serve as POTUS instead of giving the USSS a new protectee? I thought Republicans were supposed to be fiscal hawks.

WHOA. Following on muck1969's idea above, we should make and sell a line of stuffed squirrels with accessories like tiny american flag shirts with american flag pins on them, pistols, incandescent bulbs, and playsets like coal mines and oil drills.

We'll make a fortune.
