Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI), who watched his longshot presidential campaign implode and his Congressional reelection bid fail due to an organizational foul-up, apparently tried to salve his political wounds by penning a raunchy television pilot with a sexually-fixated character whose catchphrase is, "I'm Thai!"
From the Detroit News' Marisa Schultz:
"Bumper Sticker: Made On Motown" starred McCotter hosting a crude variety show cast with characters bearing the nicknames of his congressional staffers and his brother. They take pot shots about McCotter's ill-fated bid for the White House while spewing banter about drinking, sex, race, flatulence, puking and women's anatomy. It features a cartoon intro and closing snippet with an Oldsmobile careening through Detroit and knocking over the city's landmarks. The double-finned car has a Michigan license plate reading: "Made on MoTown."
The News obtained a copy of the script from a former staffer who offered it as evidence of what the five-term congressman was pitching while in elected office and the tawdry humor unbecoming of a public official who had become disinterested in serving the 11th Congressional District.
