I Love the General!

Racial politics have been on the back burner until recently. Kenney-Boy Mehlmen even went in front of the NAACP and apologized for the past and pledged that there was room under the Big Tent in the Republican Party for everyone.

That was until they were down in the polls for long enough that they had to come to terms with the fact that the Democrats were going to win unless the GOP could mobilize their base. In the South, that base is fairly strongly racist.

If it were otherwise, why even think of planting the image of a white-trash woman winking and vamping for the camera, asking the "mixed" Harold Ford, Jr. to, "Call me"?
