Another Alabama Campaign Ad: Gather Your Armies, Featuring George Washington

From the same state that brought you, “We speak English. If you want to live here, learn it,” comes another great campaign ad. This time, from Rick Barber, Alabama’s Tea Party-backed Republican candidate for Congress.The ad features Barber sitting down with Ben Franklin, George Washington and Sam Adams. The three are listening attentively as Barber passionately speaks against the oppressive IRS’ progressive income tax (see: taxation without representation). Even worse, “that same IRS” trying to encourage health-care reform and “cram it down our throats.”

These gentlemen “revolted over a tea tax. A tea tax! Now look at us.” To which the Father of Our Country dramatically (and slowly) replies: “Gather…your…armies.”
