What’s the latest on the Pete Hoekstra “Chinese” ad that’s been generating all the controversy? A follower on Twitter points out that in the html code on Hoekstra’s site the woman in the ad is identified as “yellowgirl.” I checked and sure enough he’s right.
It seems from the context that they might be referring to the yellow shirt the “Chinese” woman is wearing. But probably just another level of the unfortunateness.
