Vernon Robinson, the self-proclaimed Black Jesse Helms, has launched his first insane radio ad against Brad Miller. Brad Miller provides the audio here.
It looks like Robinson is using lies about immigration and gay marriage to smear Brad Miller:
If Miller had his way, America would be one big fiesta for aliens and homosexuals
To stop these attacks, go to Brad Miller.org and give him your support.
Fixed the "here" link.
Thanks for putting this up Targator. Vernon Robinson is a total embarrassment to any thinking person, which probably explains the out-of-state fundraising frenzy that's driving his campaign. Rightwing zealots and homophobes are always looking for people to take their money, and Vernon is like a magnet for all kinds of creepy stuff. But for people here in North Carolina with first-hand knowledge, Vernon Robinson is just another Republican joke.
Air Farce Academy
That's my favorite part of Vernon's commercial. He's bragging on being a graduate of the Air Force Academy. Those of us who went to a REAL military academy consider the Country Club at Colorado Springs just a notch above the Citadel or VMI. You only went there if you couldn't get into Annapolis and West Point.
There goes 1/1000th of the military vote.
Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.
Good old college rivalry
still comes back when I least expect it.
i ended up getting the image in my head of a roswell-style alien shaking his money maker with a bunch of men in assless leather pants while "you make me feel mighty real" is playing over the p.a. system...
so now every time i hear the name "vernon robinson", i'm going to think about a gay alien party.
his little tactic backfired!
Aliens and homosexuals
Did he mean homosexual aliens? Like Alf? Does Robinson think we're being invaded by space aliens?
Vernon, Vernon, Vernon... how can one man hate so many?
It would be fun to get a bunch of space alien masks and picket his office with signs like, "We want rights for gay aliens!" or "Vernon Robinson Phone Home!"

This is definitely about money
Ads like this shameful piece of crap are purchased and run in the hopes that come November listeners will have absorbed their content without ever really thinking about it, and VR has an early start. So that when people hear the name "Brad Miller" they'll automatically think of gay Mexicans doing donuts in their front yard. (Sort of the way that when I hear "Emilie de Ravin" I automatically think "God, I hate that whiny Claire.") Vernon's not going to win this race on the issues, so he wants to win by raw media force. It works. Give a few bucks to Brad.
Ahhh...but you forget...racists don't vote for blacks
There was an article in the Washington Post recently that outlined how the white Republicans vote for Democrats over black Republicans. I meant to highlight it, but just haven't had time.
Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.
Every now and then I go slummin' over to Free Republic and here's what I found today from a poster who seems to have some personal experience with the Vermin.
That is hilarious!
I hope PJ and Brad have seen this.
Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.
I bookmarked the page
And I archived it on my hard drive. I just had a feeling that it would be something we'd enjoy going back to again and again before November.
I just got this note from a
I just got this note from a Sara Rasberry: What a good idea--
I just heard what has to be the most tasteless, hate-filled political ad in the history of American politics and I thought someone with your publication may be interested in spreading the word about it's sponsor, Vernon Robinson. The ad titled "Brad Miller's Mariachi Party", which 94.7 broadcast on air, can be found on this candidate's website: http://vernonrobinson.com/radio.shtml.
Here is the email I've sent to just about everyone at the radio station I could get an address for:
I just heard an ad on your radio station for Vernon Robinson. It was one of the most hateful, prejudice pieces of trash I have ever heard in my life and I will no longer listen to your radio station or buy tickets for anything you sponsor. Obviously you have no idea how many loyal Hispanic, Black, Asian, Gay, and Gay-friendly listeners your need for paid advertisement just offended. I understand that this ad represents the views of the featured candidate, but in the future, you should monitor your advertisers' materials more closely if you wish to stay in business now that you have new competition. Example, I love country music; its my preferred listening choice, so that is why I am now a new subscriber to Sirius.
Also, just for your information, I am a 24 yr old WHITE female from an extremely conservative, republican family here in central North Carolina, now with a very loud mouth. YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE!!!
Thank you for your time,
Good for Sara! I wonder if she's really a conservative herself, or just from a conservative family. In any case, the battle is on: Conservative Ideology Vs. Radio Station Profit Risk. I wonder which will win out?
Seems like some letters to the editor might be in order to squash the Vermin.
Good to see you Bob.
Nice One, Sara!
And thanks, Bob, for passing it along.
