Granted, the RNC ad (see an earlier post on this blog) is tough, mostly because sarcasm does tend to cut deep, but racist
? The Ford apologists, including Tennessee Democratic Party chairman Bob Tuke, have even claimed during this race that characterizing Ford as a "Memphis Congressman" is code for calling him black. Some of these folks have lost their critical faculties.
UPDATE: The ad is now off the air. Here's what Corker has to say about that in a press release:
"Within an hour of seeing the ad for the first time, our campaign publicly denounced it and issued a press release calling for it to be pulled," said U. S. Senate Candidate Bob Corker. "The ad is tacky, over the top and does not reflect the kind of campaign that we are running. Tennesseans deserve better and we are grateful the ad is no longer airing."
