‘I Love America, but President Obama Is Ashamed of It.’

I want William Ayers’s FBI “Wanted” poster in every ad this election cycle.

Les Phillip is running against Parker Griffith, who was elected as a Democrat in 2008 and who switched to the Republican party in December. Since the local Republicans aren’t warming up to him quite as fast as he would like, Griffith aims to avoid a runoff. Alabama’s primary is June 1.
