Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold's new campaign commercial compares "excessive" touchdown celebrations—including Randy Moss's infamous "mooning" of the Lambeau faithful—to the behavior of Washington lobbyists. It's a bit of a stretch, but the NFL is characteristically up in arms.
The NFL has contacted Senator Feingold and asked him to remove the footage—which he used without the NFL's permission—but Feingold has yet to do so. This will undoubtedly be good press for the incumbent Feingold—who as of last week was getting spanked in the polls by challenger Ron Johnson—as well as help him make inroads with the elusive "moral outrage at athlete and lobbyist behavior" vote. However, the NFL should really be upset that their footage is being used in such a lazy ad. Feingold's a "one leg up on a desk" from a parody video here. That's the sort of dumb shit our politicians need to be called out on more.
