Massachusetts U.S. Senate hopeful Alan Khazei (D-Rhymes with Crazy) has just released a TV spot that’s the most ill-advised commercial since Christy Mihos’s butt-headed ad in the 2006 Massachusetts gubernatorial race.
Khazei’s current spot features two babies – a boy and a girl – supposedly having this conversation:
Boy Baby: Who ya voting for for Senate?
Girl Baby: Oh jeez. Two politicians and a big business guy?
Boy Baby: I like Alan Khazei. The City Year guy.
Girl Baby: Oh yeah. Helped a lot of kids.
Boy Baby: And he doesn’t take money from lobbyists and PACs like the rest of ‘em.
Girl Baby: That’s some change.
Boy Baby: Well if you want to change Washington…
Girl Baby: Uh-oh. I think we need a change right here.
Boy Baby: Woooh.
At that point, the Girl Baby is looking down at her diaper. Back to the spot, with Khazei on camera:
I’m Alan Khazei, and I approve this message…because someone’s got to clean up the mess in Washington.
At that point, Khazei is holding up what looks like a loaded diaper.
