Newest Jack Kingston Ad Features His Family

Georgia Senate candidate Jack Kingston will release a new ad today, titled “Tupperware.” The spot, which will run in every media market in Georgia, features his children, Betsy, John, Ann and Jim.

In a press release, Kingston campaign spokesman Chris Crawford said,

Saving money isn’t just a campaign promise for Jack Kingston, it’s a way of life. Those who know Jack Kingston best know his fiscal conservatism starts at home. Who better to attest to that than Betsy, John, Ann, and Jim Kingston? As Georgia’s next Senator, Jack Kingston will take our conservative Georgia values to Washington and lead the fight for smaller, more efficient government.

    If a car holds 14 gallons of gas at 2 cents a gallon it would save you at most 28 cents…..if your car gets 20 MPG at 4 bucks a gallon, you would of spent a dollar driving the extra 5 miles. How does this demonstrate being a fiscal conservative driving 5 miles to spend around an extra 70 cents? HUH?

    • Stefan says:

      Well, that’s either a Chevy Caprice or an Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser, both of which got 15 miles city when they were new, so the calculation is even worse. However, this line of economic thinking dovetails nicely with current Republican primary voter thinking, so…

    This is probably the dumbest commercial I’ve ever seen. He may be cheap with his own money, but freely spends taxpayer dollars. $300 million in earmarks and I’m suppose to vote for the guy because he won’t buy his kids decent clothes? No thanks.

  3. Stephen in Southside says:

    Very stupid ad. However, if he is this cheap, I wish he was that way with our tax dollars. Hint…he’s not.

  4. NorthGAGOP says:

    So the message is elect me because I’m bad for the economy? Consumer spending makes up 64% of the GDP and Jack isn’t supporting any of it.

    But then, he has been responsible for the $17 Trillion in debt we have.

    • Ken says:

      No one spends their way to prosperity and buying things unnecessarily is not good for the economy. This is the same “logic” that brings people to say, “Gee! A war would really jump-start the economy!”

      • TheEiger says:

        Maybe not a war, but the government fixing the beach at his beach house sure does help his property value.

        • Ellynn says:

          To be fair he is not the only person who uses that beach. It is affected by the shipping and river traffic, the tourists, the hurricanes… Tybee loose its sand quickly and averages a fix about every 15-20 years do to the shipping channel, that the federal government is in charge of through the Corp of Enginners.

          (Disclosure, I use that beach too, and iIm not a fan of Jack).

          You should look at his milliary, homeland, and public golf course earmarks too…

    • Ellynn says:

      Look at every thing before 2008. The millitary base earmarks for Kingland, Hinesville, and Valdosta are impressive.

    Doesn’t anyone have a sense of humor anymore? At long last instead of the bloviating of most campaign ads, we get one with a fun “tongue in cheek” message. It’s funny! Of course his kids didn’t grow up with holes in their clothes….but I bet they did use the margarine tubs instead of tupperware, but don’t we all. Lighten up folks.

    • TheEiger says:

      People don’t like stupid ads like this and it isn’t funny. It’s stupid. The next poll that comes out showing Jack in third and you will know that this ad and all the other were a mistake.

    • Ellynn says:

      My familly raised dairy cows. Besides being baned in the kitchen, Margarine was a swear word in my house growing up. It ranked slightly below the ‘f’ word and taking Gods’ name in vein. So no, no not all of use used mararine tubs…

    There is an old say, “penny wise, but pound foolish.” He might be penny wise in driving an old beater around, but he certainly did blow a wad on a bad commercial.
