‘I Like Turtle Soup!’ GOP Sen. Candidate Puts Out Bizarre Ad Slamming Mitch McConnell

A Republican candidate challenging incumbent Texas senator John Cornyn has a new ad out targeting both Cornyn and Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader. But Dwayne Stovall takes a page out of the late night comics’ book and mocks McConnell as a “Beltway turtle,” because, as we’re all aware at this point, Mitch McConnell looks a LOT like a turtle.

Here’s how Stovall sets it up, taking the requisite digs at Republican establishment types like Cornyn.

“You vote for Texas, you don’t stab her in the back by voting for closure on Obamacare. You don’t enslave its children with unconstitutional laws and overwhelming debt. And you certainly don’t do all this to please some guy that looks and fights like a turtle.”

That last line was accompanied by this picture.

Oh, and the kicker was when Stovall’s dog shouted, “I like turtle soup!”
