blogACTIVE's response to Ken Mehlman and his race-baiting of Harold Ford

What a political season it's been. In addition to watching the Democrats finally getting some traction in the national political debate, it appears we are headed for a big victory in one week.

Here it is...
Raw Story has a story about the ad. I am really proud of this... I hope you can help me push it out there. From Raw Story:
A new ad, set to debut at 3:30 today will parody an ad accused of race-baiting Tennessee Democrat Harold Ford by gay-baiting Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman.

The ad, produced by Proud of Who We Are and BlogActive, is a parody mocking the the RNC's now-infamous 'call me' ad. That spot, which the RNC eventually pulled this month, showed a scantily clad white actress saying she met Ford at 'the Playboy party.' It ended with her asking the congressman to call her. Many analysts believe it was produced to play on racist fears of interracial relationships.
