O'Donnell campaign channels Antoine Dodson
With the release of her third ad of the Delaware Senate campaign, Christine O'Donnell finally broke away from her creepy "I'm you" ads. They really made me question myself on so many levels. Anyway, the Republican nominee's "Tax man" commercial -- in the form of a movie trailer complete with sinister music and that guy with the deep, menacing voice -- is really good. The ad accuses O'Donnell's Democratic opponent, Chris Coons, of wanting to slap a levy on 911 calls and to jack up property taxes by nearly 50 percent. But there's something else about the commercial that caught my attention.
Take a look and see if you can figure it out.
"Hide your will. Hide your lights. 'Cause he's taxing everything out here." Sound familiar?
"Hide yo' kids. Hide yo' wife...'Cause they rapin' errybody out here."
This now infamous phrase was made famous this summer by an outraged Antoine Dodson during a television news interview about the attempted rape of his sister by an intruder in her Huntsville, Ala., bedroom. We can giggle about it now because out of near tragedy came good fortune. Dodson made enough money from proceeds from the "Bed Intruder Song" to move himself and his family out of the projects. But imitation in a political ad in a high-profile Senate campaign? That's one of the brass rings of notoriety. Another is a special appearance on an awards show, say the BET Hip Hop Awards. Since O'Donnell has been parodied on "Saturday Night Live," perhaps Dodson is not far from adding yet another ring to his belt of cultural acclaim.
