Re The Repub Attack On Ford: A Fancy Man Is A Pimp
Someone- Oberman or whoever- should be all over this. It's not even subtle, just out and out disgusting racism. We should be contacting news outlets and writing LTTE. This is unbelievably disgusting.

2. The NRSC
has launched a website where they dub Harold Ford "Fancy Ford". It includes pictures of Ford and remarks about his bond street attire, riding in limousines and going to ritzy restaurants. Google fancy man in quotes and you'll find that the definition is a pimp.

3. I am sure Cat Butcher Frist is behind it all
Unfortunately, this is just a start. I saw his senate campaign ad and it was good.

6. and the whole "fancy man" description
of riding in limo's and expensive suits fits Bill Frist much more. but i guess since he is a white guy he got there by working hard.

this is totally full of racism and meant to appeal to the bigots in the state by making Ford out to be the black guy who got by through corrupt means and "special privileges".

7. So what's the best
way to get the media talking about this? I don't get any of those cable news shows, but would Oberman take this on?

8. i'm sure Olbermann would, but it needs to be more
and i'm not sure how. it's a problem that is hurting the party as a whole. just look at how they present the Ken Mehlman attacks on Dems as legitimate news story yet ignore real news stories which make Republicans look bad.

5. I'm not endorsing Ford
I'm condemning the racist tactics of the 'pukes. It really burns me, particularly after the whole Hillary'Plantation thing.

10. No it's not.
There's not one comment on that thread that recognizes the RNSC ad for what it is: pure unadulterated racism.
