Proud Of Who We Are, an organization that calls upon closeted gay officials to come out, has produced a dead-on satire of RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman’s race-baiting ad against Democrat Harold Ford. Watch it and read about it.

    A response to Ken Mehlman and his race baiting of Harold Ford:

    Hey, Ken, two can play your game, pal. By late Tuesday afternoon BlogACTIVE will have produced and posted a response to your ad, which I suspect will get as much play as the original ad you used to interject your own brand of hate into the election.

    I have engaged a writer, director, cameraman, actors, actresses, post production team and a publicity team to help push this top-notch video into the mainstream as quickly as possible.
