Bush spokes-fratboy says 'Race Card' 'always' played with Black candidates [VIDEO]

Of the Republican ad that "makes Willie Horton look tame," a smirking Tony Snow tells an incredulous Chris Matthews that "maybe I’m just quaint in this day and age. But no, I think there is always an attempt when you've got an African-American candidate to try to attribute something to the race card." In the clip to the right you can see Matthews' agape mouth replaced by the bowed head of disbelief...

Matthews, no liberal, very clearly lays out the pre-existing stereotype that this ad fits snugly into; yet Snow smirks it off, saying that they're trying to be "a little bit cute":


"You don't think having a naked woman, cutey-pieing the guy, saying let's get together; you don't think that's, that's, okay, I'm not gonna ask you three times, I'm gonna ask you a second time: You really do believe, Tony Snow, that they're not playing on the white guy vote down there, to try to turn him off -- a working guy who would normally vote democrat -- turn him off to the democratic candidate because you got this black guy goin' after white women."
