Didn't get the subtle racism of the Ford ad? [VIDEO]

Jesus' General has seamlessly moved from textual satire to the talkies!

Those who don't "get" the racism of the Republican ad against Harold Ford in Tennessee have dumbfounded the likes of Chris Matthews, who asked a smirky Tony Snow: "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?"

Clearly, the racism was too subtle for Snow... imagine all the ordinary folk out there who didn't get it either? Perish. So the General has generously re-cut the video to ensure maximum comprehension... See the re-cut version, upper right.
