Ken Mehlman 'Gay-Baiting' Ad Mocks Harold Ford 'Race-Baiting' Ad

Mike Rogers of BlogActive, along with Proud of Who We Are, has produced a new parody ad mocking a "Harold, Call Me" spot being run against Democrat Harold Ford by the RNC in Tennessee. The anti-Ford ad has been criticized for its racist overtones and called "over the top" by the Tennessee Republican candidate Bob Corker. RNC Chair Ken ("I'm not gay") Mehlman denied any knowledge of the ad's content before it ran and sees nothing wrong with it.

Above, the RNC Harold Ford ad (left) and the Ken Mehlman parody ad on the right.

No word yet on whether or not Mehlman likes the taste of his own medicine.

  2. You should remind your readers of President Bush and Co.'s video mocking the search for WMD's. Bush searched the oval office looking under chairs and couches.

    No WMD's here. No hypocrites either.

  4. Hey Andy, have you seen the ads on youtube for "I'm a Republican, and I'm a Democrat" emulating the "I'm a PC/Mac" ads? Hilarious. Here's a link, you should check 'em out. So far there's three(each referenced below) and due to the positive response they're making more and might be going national...

  5. I wonder how far the parody will go. The "Ken, call me" ending is a bit too obvious though. "Just not straight, with Americans", ha! great!

  8. For the record, Harold Ford's camp stated that he voted (absentee) FOR the bill that would amend the Tennessee State Constitution to say that marriage was only between a man and a woman. Harold Ford may be telegenic, Democratic, etc...but he is no friend to our community.
