Anti-Harold Ford Ad Features Jungle Drums
Just how racist can Bob Corker get? The GOP Senate candidate has produced a radio ad that features African-sounding jungle drums at every mention of his opponent, Rep. Harold Ford, who is black.
Okay, so Election Central has just obtained a radio ad which you’ve got to hear: It actually has what sounds like tom-tom drums playing in the background every time the ad talks about Dem Harold Ford, Jr. The ad — which says it was paid for by the campaign of GOP Senate candidate Bob Corker — can be heard right here. When the ad mentions Corker, the music soars and no tom-toms are audible. Throughout the entire minute-long ad, you hear the rumble of tom-toms every time Ford is mentioned. This ad, keep in mind, quotes Bob Corker himself as having “approved” the message — meaning it wasn’t the work of the Republican National Committee, as in the case of the recent “bimbo” TV ad which drew charges of racism. More after the jump.
