John McCain Plays the Race Card

I see that John McCain's campaign is accusing Barack Obama of using the race card.

“Barack Obama has played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck,” Mr. McCain’s campaign manager, Rick Davis, charged in a statement with which Mr. McCain later said he agreed. “It’s divisive, negative, shameful and wrong.”

Which is not only absurd, but also has to be the most cynical and hypocritical thing I've seen in a long time.

Since, like I said last night, if anyone is dealing from the bottom of the deck....THEY are...

Because this ad is nothing less than racism hiding in plain view.

Of all the famous celebrities they could have compared Obama to, why not Tom Cruise? Or Arnold Schwarzenegger, or Donald Trump, or Oprah Winfrey? Why Britney Spears and Paris Hilton? Why two white blond bimbos?

Only one reason. It's a somewhat tamer version of the white bimbo ad used so successfully against Harold Ford in Tennessee. In juxtaposing Barack Obama with Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, the McCain campaign is simply trying to plant the old racist seed of black man hitting on young white woman. Not directly, but subliminally and disgracefully.

I agree. And so does this monkey.

Hint: play the ad without sound. Remember the pictures tell the story. Check out the close-ups. It's not rocket science people....or a dark conspiracy theory. It's just TELEVISION.

Race in America is a REAL factor not an imaginary one. Especially in a close race. How do you think they are going to bring back the ghost of Jeremiah Wright?

It's nighttime in Amerika and the Lizard Monster is back.

To be fair, I don't rule out the possibility that Poppy is so out of it that he actually thinks it is just about celebrity. Like subliminal has something to do with a submarine. Duh?

But his new campaign team knows EXACTLY what they're doing. They've seen the polls.Their Republican supporters have been laying the groundwork.

Just like they laid the groundwork for the next act today by accusing Obama of playing the race card, so anything he says to fight back will play into their hands. By making it look like he's just playing politics.

And reinforcing both their charge AND the hidden message.

Lordy. Somebody help us.

The Lizard Monster is loose in Amerika.

And anything could happen...


P.S. As if Obama didn't have enough problems. As if this wasn't Ludacris enough.

"The first black president is destined and it's meant to be," go the lyrics, calling on voters to "paint the White House black.

With idiot friends like that....

Who needs racists?
