Common sense

Tim James, the Republican candidate for governor of Alabama, believes “common sense” will win out over “political correctness.” Hence, his new ad, in which he argues that Alabama’s driver’s license exam should be given only in English. “Why do our politicians make use give our drivers license test in 12 languages,” he says. “This is Alabama. We speak English. If you want to live here, learn it.”

The ad, which comes in the middle of an emotional debate over immigration reform, has become incredibly popular (more than 150,000 views in just a few hours). And I suppose I can guess why. How about you? Ok, maybe you need some time to think this over… In the meantime, watch the video:
