MLK Jr. was a Republican, says radio spot

A radio spot contending that Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican is truly equal opportunity, since it has angered both conservatives and liberals according to The Washington Post. The commercial, produced by the National Black Republican Association, is about to start its second flight, expanding its initial run in Washington, D.C., Georgia, Maryland, Ohio and Pennsylvania, to include Florida markets Miami, Orlando and Tampa. I could go into lengthy descriptions of the dialogue in the spot here, but, really, the best thing to do is just take 60 seconds and give it a listen. It’s quite, um, interesting.
