Nascar political suits

My joke would go here, if I could think of an appropriate one.

GOOD MAGAZINE | What Matters
In the 2006 midterms, Senators Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Rick Santorum (R-PA), both running for re-election, have raised the most money of any candidate in their respective parties. Here are the NASCAR-style uniforms they would wear if companies were proud of their political donations, and if running for senate required a flame-retardant suit.

Funny because it's true, sad because laughter is all we have to respond with.
