Pro-Kasich Ad Mocks “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz [VIDEO]

Ugh. Via The Hill:

A new ad produced by a super-PAC supporting Republican presidential candidate John Kasich slams rival Ted Cruz for lying. The 30-second ad, titled “Nose,” was produced by New Day for America. “Many just call him Lyin’ Ted,” the ad starts out, referring to a nickname coined for the Texas senator by front-runner Donald Trump. The ad shows an image of Cruz, his nose growing throughout the spot and wrapping around his neck. The ad called the Texas senator out for his campaign’s dissemination of rumors that Ben Carson was dropping out before the Iowa caucuses.

    A+ for creepiness

      D- for CGI skills

      • Yeah I kept waiting for his nose to turn into a noose and then kill him, knowing if it were done on the senate floor no one would convict Cruz for killing Cruz.

    • Frostbite

      Are you talking about the commercial, or Ted?

      • coram nobis

        It’s a convergence of two creepies, the prehensile penile protuberance and Ted. Sort of like a Möbius strip or an Ames room in its topological improbability.

        • perversatile

          The Möbius strip installation
          at the Morpheuseum, took my
          circadian rhythm for a loop

      Surprisingly enough, this is still a thing.
      Which by the processes of republican disinformation i.e. If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes true, ergo- this must also be true.

  • TheManicMechanic

    I didn’t think it was very possible to increase the squicky factor for Teddy Crudz, but, well, this did it.

  • bkmn

    I’m sure Rump’s nose is longer.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Let’s ask Kasich’s wife.

  • Ben in Oakland

    I don’t how they did it, but they made sCruz even more revolting.

      • Ben in Oakland

        Lookit the ad, damme!!!

        • boatboy_srq

          Saw it. Nope, still just as disgusting as ever.

          Nice low-budget effect, though. The noose reference is particularly amusing.

        • You can only get so wet.
          Cruz can only get so disgusting.
          Then it’s just piling more of the same on, or attempting to drown water…

          I type this honestly, but realize it’s just March and Cruz will have more time to attempt to jump the shark of Disgust…but he’s set such a high bar, it’s hard for me to imagine how he’d get even more disgusting.

  • boatboy_srq

    Only thing that comes to mind from that image is “Get us out of here, Mr. Nesh!”

    • coram nobis

      I was thinking of the dining room sequence in “Alien.”

  • Lazycrockett

    Putting the phallic imagery aside, is his lies hanging him?

    • Just Sayin’

      That ain’t phallic. What is wrong with you! Ewww… Ick

  • coram nobis

    If they were trying to channel Pinocchio, what we’ve gotten is a creepy mashup of Maplethorpe and the film “Alien”. A prehensile penis, it looks like.

    • Gustav2

      LOL Maplethorpe always brings to mind Cincinnati OH.

      • coram nobis

        Well, he certainly brought new meaning to the National Endowment for the Arts.

  • Cuberly

    Cruze = Nasal autoerotic asphyxiation?

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Ah, Republican graphics. At least they figured out shadows.

  • mikeinrkfd

    Must be the same person that photoshops the penis’ on my Tumblr feed.

  • Gustav2

    Remember, the Super PAC is run by Kasich’s closest political friends. Don’t they seem nice?

    • BearEyes

      with no coordination – wink, wink

    • boatboy_srq

      There are no admirable GOTea candidates this cycle. There’s only variations on stupid/evil, with differing abilities to dogwhistle speak politely.

    • Randy Left Brooklyn

      Frankly I don’t see what is wrong with that ad. Calling out someone in a truthful way is perfectly fine. It is just the lying, like Ted does, that is the problem.

      We need people to call out the lies of others, because if we don’t call out their lies then they just keep doing it.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    John Carpenter needs to make a movie about this.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    OT but speaking of lying. It turns out HB2 is a Koch Brothers Trojan Horse and everyone in NC just got royally fucked.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Religulous freedom as stealth exemption from minimum wage/worker protection law?

    • boatboy_srq

      Haven’t we been saying that the transphobic clauses were just cover for all the other hideous parts of that law? That Koch is behind it is just icing on that cake.

      Now imagine what happens when/if the trans bathroom part of the law is the only thing struck down…

      Sure they got something they wanted by controlling local municipalities’ adjustment of wages, but I think it’s about bathrooms, too. The minimum wage part helps serve as a cover for the “state supersedes local non-discrim” parts of the law. It masquerades as a general concern for creating monolithic law statewide. Courts will see through it nonetheless.

    Well THAT picture certainly explains all the mistresses ! So much for girth though.

    Jesus that’s one creepy ass commercial.

    Where has that nose been?

    • coram nobis

      Nobody nose.

  • Robert Conner

    Cruz is a Texas. Republican. Senator. Need any more be said?

    • Helen Damnation ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      And he’s bat-shit crazy mean, on top of all that. Or, am I being redundant?

      • Robert Conner

        Yes, redundant.

      • coram nobis

        It’s a batshit crazy collective compendium, more than the GOP House delegation that includes Rep. Blake “Ducky Pajamas” Farenthold and Rep. Louie “Ga Ga” Gohmert, put together.
