    14. The tire pressure gauge is as loaded a symbol as a burning cross.

    Ask one of the fine Dems in Boston what was going on during the school bussing issue. New England, a hotbed of liberalism is still considered not very friendly for individuals of other color other than white. I know that a lot of the african american sailors that were stationed on the south shore back in the 80's and early 90's ran into housing disrimination routinly. And that was just up the road from Teddy's house, and down the road from JF Kerry's residence.

    Could the add just be to expose Obama's great energy conservation plan. How about we fill our tires with Helium, that will make them lighter and easier to roll.

    I'm surprised no one suggested it racsist as a phallic symbol

    To be fair many say that it isn't racist, but there are those who can always be talked into believing anything negative about conservatives.

    And then there are these comments:

    57. Because it looks like he's being clubbed in the head..

    the way they did to the civil rights protesters. They're appealing to the lowest common denominator here.

    59. Exactly. And you don't get it unless you are a racist piece of filth....
    Edited on Mon Aug-04-08 09:05 PM by Virginia Dare
    or you are in the south and know how the racist pieces of filth think.
    By that rational Virginia Dare is a racist peice of filth.

    54. Why'd they place in on top of his head then?
    it's very specifically supposed to conjure up images of a head clubbing.

    25. I debated the racism, but if you look at the positioning, I fall on the side of ITS RACIST

    The placement of the tire gauge is NOT accidental. That is a really weird placement, it is actually touching his head.

    If this was just a stupid ad about their fake energy talking points, it would not be composed this way.

    Sick.

    first of all, does it have to be racist to be evil? hm. clearly it is violent and that's so...republican?

    say you are the GOP and you've been accused of being racist. Would YOU run this ad? An ad with a tire gauge (iron) aimed at the head of your african american opponent? Does this ring a bell with NO ONE?

    If you decided to run this ad, WHY?

    Right. Because it is racist and it will provoke your opponent into crying racism and then you can accuse him of playing the race card and bring up images of OJ. Game over.

    It's typical southern strategy. Do things that aren't obvious except to those who "get it" -- the intended victim and your group of frat boys. What a laugh.

    If you don't recognize this for what it is, come and live in the old south for a few years and then tell me what you think. GAG me. Sorry, I don't mean to come down on anyone here-- but this is so clear to me and when you don't get it, it just makes it worse. Oh well, it doesn't really matter. It's best to attack him back and not even bother responding to this. It's so beneath any civilized person, I feel sick.
