Rick Scott's no-sense-of-humor ad

Memo to Rick Scott. If you want to bash someone for having a sense of humor in an ad, you might want to reconsider running it during a comedy show. The Republican for governor probably didn't intend to do that during Saturday Night Live when he ran his latest spot taking President Obama to task for cracking jokes at the expense of Arizona and its immigration law. Unmentioned by the ad: Obama made the jokes at the White House Correspondents Dinner. It's a venue where you're supposed to crack jokes.

The fact that the ad popped up during SNL (just saw it on DVR last night, hence the lateness of the post) was probably coincidence and a function of Scott's estimated $6.3m ad buy... and counting. The millionaire is spending so much of his own cash that it's inevitable his ads will pop up anywhere. Speaking of Saturdays, is the immigration-related ad running on Sabado Gigante as well?
