John Cornyn, Mitch McConnell, a cartoon turtle and a talking dog — all in 1 ad!

February 14, 2014

Some within the Tea Party are furious over the decision by Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to help shepherd the passage of the debt ceiling increase earlier this week. Both McConnell and Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn (R-Tx.) have come under fire -- with national conservative groups slamming McConnell and  one of Cornyn's primary challengers, Rep. Steve Stockman, sending a colorful tweet criticizing the incumbent Thursday night.

But, just when you thought you had seen it all comes this ad via Dwayne Stovall, who is also challenging Cornyn in the Texas primary.

"We Texans don't need a beltway turtle telling us how to fight," Stovall declares in the 30-second ad. And then, the dog sitting next to Stoval chimes in: "I like turtle soup."

That. Just. Happened.
