MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski talked with New York Times columnist Bob Herbert who has written a column criticising the GOP for exploiting race in politics. Herbert sees a racial component to the recent advertisement from John McCain's campaign that is critical of Barack Obama's celebrity appeal. Herbert believes that the McCain campaign included footage of the Victory Tower in Berlin as a phallic symbol in the commercial to exploit negative racial themes.
