I don't really see it.

You know, after all the time I've spent reading rabid frothing against anything that even hints at miscegenation, you'd think I'd be quicker to see it. Apparently some people, including the NAACP, think the latest GOP ad against Harold Ford (Democratic candidate for Senate in Tennessee, and current Representative) hints at a miscegenetic threat.

After seeing the ad in question, I can't say that I see it. Maybe it's because I'm not familiar with Harold Ford and didn't know he was black before watching this. It's an insipid, vacuous piece of dreck, sure, but anti-miscegenation?

Well, maybe not the ad. But this, surely.

Not that Harold cares much about who gets to marry whom, anyways.
