The new ad from Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) continues her strange “Jim the Election Guy” motif, but this time throws in a recognizable pop culture reference against her Democratic opponent, state Sen. Tarryl Clark: There’s a tax for that.
The ad shows Jim telling parents who are taking their kids back to school that Clark has a tax for everything. “Want to buy some crayons? She’s got a sales tax increase for that,” says Jim. “Drive your kids to school? She’s got a gas-tax hike for that. Buy a backpack? She’s got a tax for that, too.”
No wonder they have this Jim character in the ads. John Hodgman and Justin Long weren’t available.
