Whoever Created This Political Ad Watched Too Many Episodes Of “Where On Earth Is Carmen Sandiego”

  • If there’s one thing that we can glean from this video, it’s that the consumption of corn dogs is a huge political liability in South Dakota. Republican Congresswoman Kristi Noem released this ad in the days leading up to the 2012 election to deal a final death blow to her Democratic opponent Matt Varilek who, as we’re told, hosted a raucous ‘National Corn Dog Day’ party in his swanky DC neighborhood, serving 1,000 corn dogs, 1200 beers, and a 150 lb ice luge for drinking Jagermeister.” Apparently the corn dog hatred is fervent in South Dakota, because Noem beat Varilek easily in November.
