Karger Rolls Out New TV Spot, Whines That Perry Shouldn’t Be At Debates

Gay GOP Presidential hopeful Fred Karger is debuting his new ad, “Let Fred In,”  at the Grafton County Republican Committee Columbus Day Dinner tonight in Plymouth, NH.  Karger is speaking at the dinner along with Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, and fellow longshot hopefuls  Jon Huntsman and Buddy Roemer.

With special effects and vintage footage of Karger’s old boss, Ronald Reagan, the 90-second spot reiterates Karger’s demand that he should be allowed to participate in the Republican primary debates and chides his opponents for booing a gay servicemember.

“I was watching the last debate in Washington  and when they booed Stephen Hill I was so angry that I was not there to speak out against such un-American behavior,” said Karger.  “I hope that this commercial will send a clear message to future debate organizers that they should ‘Let Fred In’ so that I can address these social issues and talk about how I will turn this country around like Ronald Reagan did 30 years ago.”

In other news, Karger is also claiming that if he’s kept out of the upcoming debate tomorrow night at Dartmouth College, Rick Perry should be as well. According to the listed debate requirements, a candidate must report at least $500,000 raised in its FEC filing through the second quarter of 2011. “Ricky Perry was not a candidate by the end of the second quarter and has not filed any FEC fundraising reports,” reads a release from Karger’s camp that was sent to the Washington Post and Bloomberg TV. “Perry did not join the race until August 12, 2011, 43 days after the end of the second reporting period. [He] has yet to file ANY FEC fundraising reports for any quarter.”

We feel like our mom when she’d make us play with that weird kid down the street nobody liked. Let Fred join in your little game, guys—he’s got enough problems already.

    queerty seems to be dogging Karger for speaking out. It is obvious he is not included in any of the debates because he is gay. Noone can refute that. It’s our right as gay citizens to stand up for what’s right and speak out.

    Of course he’s not included in the debates because he’s gay.

    That said, his fiscal plans are as equally abhorrent to human decency as the rest of the GOP’s, and the fact that he made his millions from Big Tobacco is just disgusting.

    I’d love to say “yay! a gay candidate!” but it sure aint impressive when it’s one who made their fortune from the blood of millions and who runs on a fiscal plan that’s baseless, ass-kissing to the wealthiest citizens, and is generally reflective of a clueless life of vanilla-cocooned white privilege.

    Why is Karger “whining” if he points out the Republican Debate Rules are being violated? If what he’s saying is true, he’s making a valid point. If the debate requires prerequisites, why should they be waived for one candidate, but not another?

    Meh, Republicans are just fixing the debate to screw Karger the way the Commission on Presidential Debates fixed the debates to fuck Nader, by creating arbitrary requirements designed to eliminate the possibility a candidate could promote antithetical or dissenting messages.

    The parties have made a farce of presidential debates.

    Seeing that Karger made millions off tobacco has me curious. Republicans want to pass an amendment banning gay marriage – something that harms no one (I have heard their arguments to the contrary and quite frankly they’re crap and easily refuted). Bottom line, it’s religious belief. However, if anyone suggests banning harmful products like cigarettes, conservatives are the first to defend the rights of the people to make their own personal choice. Interesting. True liberty only applies if there is money involved. Apparently, laws based on religious beliefs are necessary only if they don’t conflict with corporate profits. If they pass the amendment, it will be the dawn of federal Sharia law in the United States. Bin Laden would be so proud!
