The first female combat pilot in U.S. military history would seem an unlikely target for a kitchen-themed attack ad, and yet that’s exactly what Nancy Pelosi’s House Majority PAC and Rep. Ron Barber have cooked up for Martha McSally, a retired Air Force colonel and pioneering A-10 pilot.

“Wall St. and Martha McSally—here’s what they’ve got cooking,” a female voiceover says as well-worn recipe cards pop out of a recipe box against a backdrop of fresh groceries. The ad features a photo of McSally on a recipe card alongside scribbled accusations like, “raise retirement age” and “essentially end Medicare.” The ad concludes, “McSally and Wall St.— a recipe for disaster.”

McSally, for her part, calls the accusations false and the ad’s theme “laughable.”

“The fact that they use this theme of Martha McSally in a kitchen cooking up recipes is…overtly sexist and insulting to any woman, but it certainly doesn’t fit specifically with me,” she said in a phone interview. “For crying out loud, I served 26 years in the military.

    McMcSally – oh yes, she ran for the empty giffords seat in Baja AZ in the special election in March. She ran in the special election primary as an “R” candidate. But she, along with several others, was defeated in the primary by conservative patriot and decorated military veteran Jesse Kelly. While other “R” candidates got behind Jesse and worked for his campaign in the special election, Mzzzzzz McMcSally didn’t. She and her staff went to work for the dimocrat candidate Ron Barber to defeat the special election. While she was working for “D” Barber, she submitted her petitions for this general election, pleased to know she was the only “R” to run.

    Isn’t that sweet – here she is now, still running as a “R” candidate. Kinda makes you McWonder, doesn’t it? Ron Barber appreciates her.

    God bless America.
