To date, this ad has not aired that I have seen. I admit I do not ate much TV, so could have missed it. The ad was made, but only on a pro forma basis. Personally, I think Ms Griffin's 15 minutes of fame shame will be over in a coulee of more days. Also, though I would vote for Handel if I was in the 6th district, I think it would be a mistake.

It would be a perfect fit.
The DNC is mild compared to her. I don't care if the GOP uses her as a tool to help win in GA or anywhere else. Let them get something out of her stupidity. She deserves any backlash she gets. Even the majority of Dem, those who think straight are disgusted with her. The only ones who are really defending her in any way are those comedians that are over the hill.

The GOP Is Using the Kathy Griffin Scandal in a TV Ad for Georgia's Special Election - It's a Doozy
Good idea.

Reminds me of the Dukakis/Bush race where Willie Horton was used by the Republicans to win the race.

Liberals will defeat themselves if we conservatives allow it. I still think Hillary may have won if she had not campaigned.

And Al Franken, who has suddenly discovered that he "believes in forgiveness".

It is terrible what she did but the Left thought it was really funny yet if someone had done that to the likeness of Obama the backlash would have been HUGE !
The right complained that Nugent and Williams Jr. were attacked for vile statements about Obama, now they cheerlead Griffin's censorship. Yet the left condemned all. Who's the real hypocrites here?

I actually think the nuts on the street in the ad hurt the Dems more that some withered old comedian know to be a publicity hound. For a person who supposedly has a gay base, I've once saw her rip Clay Aiken apart. I didn't keep watching. I never saw a single episode of American Idol nor could I name anything he's ever done show biz wise but he has never seemed to me like the type of person (and he's a Democrat) who deserves some old witch making him a punching bag.

Kathy is a small piece to the problem.

Of course the hypocrites on the right have no issues with suggestions of violence from people like the recently hosted at the White House Ted Nugent, right?

I wasn't aware that Kathy Griffin was running for the seat. Isn't it Ossoff who's running and what does he have to do with the trump head?
Sad that the Republicans don't have a platform to run on as they have to bring up Kathy's trump head which trump and family portrayed as despicable and upsetting to Baron.

Not me baby. But you want to play, you better be ready to pay. I have no idea what Williams said but Nugent shot his mouth off and deservedly took his hits. Griffin is free to take her shots too, that's fine by me. I love it when libs go over the top...they always show their true colors, and it isn't tolerance. She should've expected the blowback though. Her whiny poor-little-me Trump broke me nonsense is pathetic.

I agree but Nugent and Williams played victim too. Williams was dropped by ESPN after compairing Obama to Hitler.
Hank Williams Jr. Dropped Permanently From
ESPN -- Hank Williams Jr. theme song won't return to Monday Night Football
FYI, I don't have a hometeam but to see conservatives cheer when they bellyached about Nugent and Williams is damn hypocritical and you know it.
