Gotta Hand It To Republicans
They know how to get away with being boldly racist. Either someone on Obama's side has to learn how to produce ads like this, or we're going to lose. The only thing sadder than the fact that McCain is running this kind of campaign is that it's working. His entire campaign strategy is becoming clear, and it's the oldest smear in the history of race relations: accusing a black man of not showing the proper respect to a white woman. See for yourself.
Obama has 2 new ads out. One tries to be hard-hitting, but I think it misses the mark. The other is a feel-good. I'm not even sure there's anything he can do at this point. McCain-Palin gets all the attention these days, and even when they make horrifying mistakes, are shown to be liars, or to have a horrendous record, the public doesn't seem to care. What they do care about escapes me, but it surely has nothing to do with the policies of the country and its leaders.
