    Over 18 brain cells. The risk of it causing brain death in one hit is too great for those with fewer.

    Not too far off from your typical rap video where the main subject matter is guns, money, and/or women.

    Because, of course, there is no difference between artistic expression and a political ad. :rolleyes:

    You mean the same reality where gays are all leather-clad pedophiles?

    Republican "reality"?

    Not really in this case. Go watch some rap videos on YouTube or wherever and get back to us.

    Yes really in this case. What are you talking about?:confused:

    Rap videos are not the same thing as political ads. Ever.

    This wasn't a video from some pathetic rapper for the tweens to eat up.

    This was a political ad, one that states that she "even used the money to help get inmates out of jail so they can rape and kill again"

    I'm not really all that bothered by the imagery of the ad (because it looked so ridiculous I can't imagine anyone taking it seriously), but the wording, well I question if that kind of thing is even legal.

    That was... damn that was just something on a whole new level there. :confused:

    That the imagery in the ad is highly similar to an ordinary rap video, right down to the money being thrown around and scantily clad women in...interesting poses. Why is this so hard?

    The internet says you are wrong:
    Pink UFO
    Sarcozy
    Governor of CT
    Pakistan
    Gainesville

    Yeah I can't count the number of times I've been held up by a black dude with an ak-47. It's practically an every day occurrence.

    In what way is this video not racist???

    The reality that exists in the minds of bigoted segment of the electorate at which the ad was targeted.
