Over at TPMmuckraker
,they're reporting on the new Republican flyers in Tennessee. I wonder why anyone thought there might be racial overtones in this race. The flyer reads:
Vote early to preserve your way of life.
Where have I heard that before
A vote for Truman electors is a direct order to our Congressmen and Senators from Mississippi to vote for passage of Truman's so-called civil rights program in the next Congress. This means the vicious FEPC - anti-poll tax - anti-lynching and anti-segregation proposals will become the law of the land and our way of life in the South will be gone forever. Get in the fight for STATES' RIGHTS - Fight for THURMOND and WRIGHT.
