Only a Dave Chappelle character could embrace the nickname "the black Jesse Helms," right? Meet Vernon Robinson, who has a dream of someday being equally despised by both blacks and whites -- and hey, why stop there when you can offend Mexicans and gays, too? A GOP primary candidate for a House seat in North Carolina, Robinson has promised to spend $3 million on smear ads, the first of which appears below.

Should you feel the need to get in contact with Robinson, here is his Web site and contact information
