What do you expect from a right wing closet case like Mehlman?
Unfortunately, the Republicans run these ads for one reason: they work.
My question is, after the election, are the Republicans going to lynch Mehlman, tar and feather him, or drag him behind a truck? Because he's got to be the most incompent bucket of spooge I've ever seen in action.
And Mehlman is GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY. And has orchestrated the campaign against gays.
What can you expect from such a self-hating freak other than thinly veiled bigotry.
My spidey sense suggests this is beginning to backfire even in Tennessee where it really matters. Gawd, I hope I'm right.
Aren't you special, you Buju bullies, Bantonofascists, & turd-eating fnarftards (four digits, asshole!) who reconstructed a black man right off Butt Plug Hill. (Reconstruction was a Democrat project that you progressives haven't progressed beyond.)
& Mehlman is GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY? How convenient. Since Jonathan is SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT, y'all can shack up & exchange yeast infections on Saturday nite.
Unfortunately, I've read comments on blogs from residents of tennesee who believe that the racist ad will resonate with the dumb as a stump hicks in the sticks and make a difference in the election down there.
Where can you see the ad? Can't find it on utube.
The bit in the ad about the Playboy chick is lame. But it isn't racist. You have to be a bit of a bigot yourself to think that very many people these days even notice let alone get upset by interracial dating.
Yeah, it's racist.
Own up to it, SS, like a man. Not like the combat-avoiding Red you are.
You think those are bad? Check out the ads by Kerry Healey of Mass. She is running against a black democract (who has a 15 point lead) and she runs ads implying that if you vote for him, you will get raped and he will free the rapist. Check her out on youtube.
speculation about how ads/speeches/gestures will "play" among demographic segments of the populace is not the same thing as discourse. it has, however, replaced discourse. that's why there's no democratic party.
Here is one more.
How do the self-appointed racism police feel about Steny Hoyer's comment that Michael Steele is "slavishly" devoted to the Republican Party?
don't say "self-appointed." you can do better that that.
Steny Hoyer has admitted it was a bad choice of words, and apologized for it.
Which is more than we're ever going to get from Mehlman, or any other republican.
How is this ad "racist" ? I thought you libs were supposed to be MORE tolerant of "interracial dating".
One-hatted Josh, the partisan advocate, apparently takes notice of the race of couples.
Racist? WTF? This has got to be one of the most clear cut case of idiotic Dems playing the race card.
Stefan and others, I think you're being disingenuous in pretending not to see the race-baiting aspect of the ad. Your half-assed attempts at turn-around (you're racist if you think it's racist) are ridiculous. So when African-American leaders condemn the ad as racist, are you going to call them racist too?
And what other purpose would be served by having that woman in the ad? If it wasn't meant to stir up racial tensions, the only obvious point is "he likes girls." No, the ad fits in perfectly with the history of the southern strategy of the GOP.
Joel Connelly rightly points out that the part about Canada is offensive. Canadians are dying in Afghanistan.
Jeepers! I just LOVE the party of compassion and tolerance. Vote Democrat: the next best thing to thinking.
i don't get it. which was the racist part? in fact, i dare say, most guys would think it flattering to have a playboy model hitting on them.
From a strict production standpoint, If this ad is racist, than how should the woman who met him at the Playboy party have been portrayed so as not to be racist?
Assume for a moment she was a black woman. Would that not have also been racist, implying that black men must only date black women?
Therefore, the RNC is racist for just mentioning the fact that he went to a Playboy party. Nice logic.
