Flashback: Daschle's Hilarious 1986 Ad on Being a Regular Joe


Saw this 1986 Daschle ad on my beloved right-wing noise machine, and I thought it's something everyone could enjoy regardless of political persuasion. It's Daschle claiming he's a regular guy because he drives a 1971 Pontiac hoopty instead of having a limo and driver. 20+ years later, I guess it's okay to be a man of the people as long as you don't report the limo and driver on your taxes. Of course, we should have known Daschle was a phony back in those days, since every respectable working stiff in the 80s drove a Dodge, like this guy:

Actually, that is a pretty good hoopty. Needs better rims, tho.

Or maybe, he doesn't care about clean air.

Ms. K,


This was 1986, when spraying your hair with 10 cans of CFC-ridden hairspray was still socially acceptable.
