I they're they're all racist, including that troutmouthed brother at the end. Uhhh, if they are trying to make a point about not being racist, then why pull the Jedi Mind Trick of ending the video with a sad looking black man?

The ad sights two unrelated instances (Jesse Jackson vs Artur Davis and Jimmy Carter vs the TeaBaggers), and takes both completely out of context as the basis of their pointless point.

Of course this would never happen. The party leadership is too chickensh*t to be concerned with policing their own racist supporters, for fear of alienating these very voters come 2010. It's a lot easier to do a lil' Psychological Projection, and somehow turn the tables on the other side, thereby accusing them of being racist for merely pointing out the fact that many of your supporters are racist.
