If stumping for Bush in 2004 after the dirty tactics Bush employed in 2000 wasn’t enough, now McCain has hired the guy who produced the anti-Ford ad that hinted at miscegenation as a campaign manager.
McCain enlisted Nelson as an adviser back in March, months before the bimbo eruption. But by putting out this ad, which provoked charges of racism across the country, Nelson made himself politically radioactive — so much so that Wal-Mart dumped Nelson as a consultant after the controversy exploded. But Nelson’s ad hasn’t rendered him too radioactive for McCain, apparently — McCain’s essentially given Nelson a promotion.
