Pete Hoekstra Criticized for Racially Insensitive TV Ad [VIDEOS]

US Senate candidate Pete Hoekstra unveiled a new ad campaign during this year's Super Bowl contest. The commercial was definitely not as slick as offerings from Budweiser, (featuring their famous Clydesdales) or others, but it is getting plenty of attention. Criticism, actually.

Naysayers claim the ad's use of an Asian woman speaking broken English is offensive and racist.

Take a look for yourself, then watch Hoekstra's video response after the break.

C-Span Gets Pranked with Calls About Mitt Romney [NSFW VIDEOS]

I'll get right out in front of this, and admit that I have the maturity of a 15-year-old boy. So yes, I do think this is funny. C-Span has been pranked not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES in the last few days with a question about Mitt Romney. The questions refer specifically to the GOP candidate's "anatomy."

Management insists that I include "NSFW" in the headline - that's "Not Suitable For Work." To that I say, "Whatever!" But seriously, C-Span, have you not heard of the seven-second delay?

One last time, if you're easily offended, don't hit play. There are plenty of stories on here about puppies that you can read instead.

YouTube user "Baracksdubs" has pored through President Obama's speeches, and created a "Barack Obama" remake of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way."

It's cool. It's creepy. It's after the jump.
