...it's not dark yet, but it's gettin' there...

Chris Matthews has been obsessing over the chick from the Ford ad all week. I think he's smitten. He keeps calling her "sexy, sexy, naked, naked, very alluring, sexy, naked," etc.

But she just isn't that hot. Seriously, I don't even think Casca would go after her. Well, maybe after a few Bacardi and Cokes, I don't know.

More: In Australia, there is a conservative politician running for a seat in a district named, coincidentally, Forde. Her name is Hajnal Ban and she is something.

Firstly, I don't drink rum & coke, unless there's nothing else. It's a chick drink. Give me anything on the rocks.

Secondly, I might give her a hot meat injection, but I wouldn't fall asleep until her ass was out the door. She's got psycho written all over her.

I appreciate the recent Australian content. The post on Sheikh Hilali got me to finally look up just how it is that he came to be "mufti of Australia", since it's not as if he's state-appointed. And Hajnal Ban turns out to be in the federal seat next door to mine. :-)

Good call, Annie. She's definitely not hot. If anything, she screams "WT." I'm betting Ford could do a whole bunch better.

The ad was obsolutely not racist; it's biggest sin was being very unfunny and kinda dumb.

Maybe, at 4am when they are pushing us all out of the bar. And she would have to take her dentures out.

Meantime, Lileks parodies Andy Sullivan. Great stuff!

I can't believe that the national press is trying so hard to turn this ad into something racist. The WT chick at the end is one unfunny bit out of many. The MSM knows the race-baiting charge will hurt the Rep in the race, so I suppose that I shouldn't be surprised. Still, to call this ad racist is just plain stupid.

Posted by: blu on Oct. 29, 2006

p.s. I should add that an even dumber MSM trick than tyring to make this stupid ad racist is its perpetuation of the lie that Evangelicals are moving away from the GOP. It's a totally unproven charge, based on polling data that shows that some are not 100% pleased with Bush & Co; but there is not an inkling of proof that they plan to stay home or change their vote to the Socialists...er, I mean...Democrats. Liberal media bias is getting intense the last few days of this campaign. It so bad now that it should be obvious to even somewhat casual political observers.

There is a subset of Christians who have no desire to participate in the political process and had to be dragged into the polls the last few elections. These insular people don't care about politics because they think it's part of the world that they reject. They will stay home. I don't know what percentage of the whole they are, I'd guess it's a minority, but I don't know if it's something to be worried about. I've met these types and I don't understand them, but I know they exist.

Though I don't fully agree with you that the possibly naked white babe is totally without racist ovretones and just unfunny, I am curious what the response would have been if she were black.

Curious too, as there were two choices of women (light skinned-dark skinned) why they chose white and risked the cry of playing the rasce card, when choosing a black women would have eliminated it.

Yowza. I can't pronounce the Aussie chick's name, but I'd vote for her just to buy her some extra face time on TV.

Weird, Straw, because I thought throwing in a black chick would have been more racist - but just as silly. (When I look at Ford, I see a guy who looks like he's got a bit of both races running through his veins. I don't know that for a fact though.)

Frankly, I think the whole Playboy thing is a non-factor. The guy is single. If he wants to go check out some hotties, who gives a rats ass. He ain't messing around on his wife, and he ain't a nancy boy. Reps should leave that shit alone.

Well of course, but we know that the party of Linclon is first and foremost the party of hypocrisy and innuendo. If they think they can alienate 6 coonhounds from voting for him they'll try.

The Aussie girl is not just that: She's Hungarian descent, born in Israel, with an Aussie accent? Oy Vey, she must melt the knees when you see/hear her!

Of course, I haven't heard Annie's voice yet...

I'd hit it.
