Skip to comments.Greta Slams Longshot GOP Candidate as 'Jerk' for McConnell Insult (Cornyn Opponent Stovall)
Posted on 02/16/2014 6:29:18 AM PST by jimbo123
Fox News host Greta Van Susteren on Friday blasted a bizarre television spot by longshot Texas Senate candidate Dwayne Stovall that likens Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to a Looney Tunes turtle.
"This ad is lousy," Van Susteren said on her Fox website. "It is gratuitously insulting.
"I have no idea whether Stovall is a great candidate or not but his ad makes me think he is a jerk," she added. "You can be clever and funny in ads or you can be gratuitously insulting."
In the ad, Stovell, one of seven candidates vying to unseat Sen. John Cornyn in a GOP primary, blasts the Minority Whip for following McConnell's lead including this week's vote to raise the debt ceiling.
"As a senator from Texas you vote for Texas, you don't stab her in the back by voting for cloture on Obamacare; you don't enslave its children with unconstitutional laws and overwhelming debt and you certainly don't do this to please some guy that looks and fights like a turtle," Stovall says in the 30-second ad.

Texans for Stovall
Store up on your “jerk” labels Greta. You will be seeing more of this. It is called speaking the unvarnished truth to power.
“and you certainly don’t do this to please some guy that looks and fights like a turtle”
“looks like”. Being the operative phrase.
Why did the naked turtle cross the road?
“”Store up on your jerk labels Greta”
She said this about someone else recently. Was it Eric Erickson? I can’t believe she wasn’t aware of Eric and IMO, he’s far from being a jerk.
I believe Stovall has struck a nerve!!
As much as I dislike McConnell, ridiculing someone’s looks is a poor choice.
If he would have avoided talking about his looks and focused on his behavior, it would have been great.
I don’t think this helped Stovall but probably did stir up some sympathy for mitch.
how many successful campaigns has know-it-all greta managed or for which been a consultant ?
also i’m sure there are folks who think that some things she has said and done on her show have been really dopey and gratuitously insulting.
for me, there is no adequate comparison for what a complete unAmerican failure mcconnell is and has been and that goes for his little pal cornyn too.
adios to both of those useless pieces of garbage.
I don’t care much for the turtle-looks comparison but i would rather have ANYONE than McConnel now.
As far as I’m concerned all stops are out when it’s between Rino and Tea Party Conservative. They picked this fight. Now they’re screaming like little girls afraid of cooties.
When a tiger becomes a kitten,sometimes the dark side bursts out.
Support Dwayne Stovall to oust John Cornyn in TX
How do you like them apples, Greta?
I like Stovall, but don’t see the point in him attacking McConnell.
I agree that McConnell probably should be replaced. Age and voting record. But he is not running for office in Texas.
Makes me wonder if someone offered to pay for the ad if he attacked McConnell.
In my opinion, Stovall was ill advised on the ad. He should have stayed focused on Cornyn and Stovall’s vision of what the State of Texas needs.
Cornyn is desperate. I think he will be forced into a runoff. And I think he will be defeated in the runoff.
He does look like a Turtle.
On the other hand, Stovall could have been a bit more artfully subtle and left the 'turtle' reference to 'fighting like'; people would have completed the thought on their own.
I went to the University of Maryland so calling someone a turtle is not an insult.
I think getting the “Jerk” label from Greta is going to become a highly-sought-after label for TP politicians. It comes under the heading of “No Such Thing as Bad Publicity.”
I have noticed that she gets her panties in a wad over some dumb stuff lately.
