Two Wongs make a right! Sorry, I couldn’t resist. (Besides I am a “Wong” even though I spell it “Wang” so y’all can suck my wang if you don’t like it.) Here’s another spoof of Pete Hoekstra’s Super Bowl ad starring a lady Wong, this time courtesy of the divine Ms. Kristina:
Can I get a slow-clap from all my Angelenos for THIS: “Oh, I thought we were in Runyon Canyon”?

That Ali Wong is pretty adorbs. Does this mean I have to start watching Are You There, Chelsea?, where Wong plays Laura Prepon’s–i.e. the Chelsea Handler character’s–BFF?

Anyone seen the show? What do y’all think?

What I’m really talking about of course is this crazy racist campaign ad that aired in Michigan during the game for U.S. Senate hopeful Pete Hoekstra (R), directed by the same guy who got Christine O’Donnell to publicly confess, “I’m not a witch”:
The ad for Hoekstra–a hot mess of Vietnamese mise-en-scène standing in for China, California Girl-speak poorly disguised as bad Engrish, and some requisite chinky background music–managed to piss off Dems and Republicans alike with its creepy, unabashed Fear of a Yellow Planet storyline. (Though everyone’s favorite race-contrarian Michelle Malkin didn’t seem to mind it. But this is the same person who defended the internment, so, you know.)
And let’s not overlook the website that goes along with the ad! It makes the TV spot look Continue reading DISGRASIAN OF THE SUPER BOWL! Pete Hoekstra’s Racist, Anti-Chinese, “We Take Your Jobs” Ad
