The New GOP - racism is now only implied in ads

Jungle drums when you mention your black opponent's name, an alluring blonde tempting the candidate, black people saying I'll vote for him because he looks good.... Direct racism loses more votes than it gains now so the message has to be more subtle than just coming out and saying don't vote for that uppity n-word. There has been racial progress, the Republican'ts are just bringing up the rear.

Meanwhile, will the Republican smear campaign against Ford for attending a Playboy party at a Superbowl game backfire? "I was there. I like football and I like girls. I don't have no apologies for that." I am not a huge fan of Ford but we need more plain speaking Democrats.
