It's Not a Question of Nasty -- These Are Racist Ads

That's what Chris Matthews had to say in this MSNBC segment on the winking ad from the RNC against Democratic Harold Ford, who is an African American. If you haven't seen it, catch it and Josh Marshall's view of it over at Talking Points Memo.

And now there's a new radio ad from Republican Bob Corker's campaign that highlights the different characteristics of the two candidates. When describing Corker, there's swelling music akin to the end of a patriotic Bruce Willis movie. When describing Ford, the music turns ominous with a subtle jungle drum underpinning. Yes. Jungle drums. You can listen to it here, and read more about it at TPM Cafe.
