Pete Hoekstra, a Michigan senate candidate, has made quite a name for himself since his campaign ad aired on Super Bowl sunday (not nationally, of course). It’s not making news because he’s a lovable underdog, or he’s got an innovative way of looking at job creation or whatever else Michigan senators worry about. No, this ad stands out because it’s very, very racist.

I could describe how it’s racist, but that’s sort of like describing why a joke is funny. It’s better if you just see for yourself.

See? It’s racist! And more importantly, it’s a pretty stupid ad.

Well, for all the hell that Pete Hoekstra is catching, and it’s a lot, he’s not alone when it comes to leveraging racial stereotypes and insensitivity to get elected to office.

Yeah, it seems counterproductive to me too, but what do I know?

Tim James



Tim James thinks the best way to save money is to give all those driver’s license exams in English. All those other languages are bullshit in Alabama. Alabamans speak English. It just makes sense to him.

(stares pensively at ground, looks up)

“Does it to you?”

Christmas has provided filmmakers with lots of inspiration over the years. We have our classic Christmas specials and films like It’s A Wonderful Life, and our terrible attempts like Christmas With The Kranks. But there’s another type of Christmas movie out there; films that are just too weird to be bad. They may fall short of genius, but there is a sublime quality to them, a certain something that just needs to be witnessed. Preferably while tanked.

Well, over the last four days, I did some heavy research on the subject, and came up with the following six films.

The Magic Christmas Tree

As you may have gleaned from the title, the family motion picture The Magic Christmas Tree is about a Christmas tree that talks. And since no Christmas family motion picture would be complete without a happy witch, greedy giant, or runaway lawnmower, they have those too. It also features a thrilling scene where Santa Claus is captured. You’ll want to see that!

Elves

It’s really your classic holiday tale. A girl discovers she’s the focus of an evil Nazi experiment that involves wicked elves and the selective breeding of a race of super-soldiers. One thing leads to another, and she and her friends are locked in the mall with a killer elf. Only Dan Haggerty’s disgraced alcoholic detective turned Mall Santa can put the pieces together and save the day.

Since the Christmas season basically started immediately after Halloween, the “Holiday Spirit” is starting to get a little old. Luckily, some of our favorite Sci Fi characters have stepped in to make things a little more interesting.

So, without further adieu, here are some of Science Fiction‘s most beloved Santa’s, most of whom will destroy the sh*t out of you rather than giving you presents. Enjoy!
