This is quite possibly the funniest political story I have EVER read. A candidate for the Republican nomination to challenge Democratic Congressman Nick Lampson's seat in the Texas 22nd (Tom DeLay's old seat) sent out a campaign mailer in which his face is superimposed on a different body.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "The picture, presented as a true image of the candidate, is a computerized composite of Hrbacek's face and someone else's slimmer figure, in suit and tie, from neck to kneecaps." Here's a picture of the ad and a description of the candidate from a local.

What would we do for fun without the Sugar Land Republicans?
