McCain Chronicles

McCain’s latest foray into negative, substance-less politics is one that even I think plays upon a latent racism among borderline voters:

It seems to me (though it’s open to interpretation) that the ad seeks to play upon the fear that an uppity black guy is literally going to replace all of our cherished national monuments, even our money, with his black face.

As a reminder:

“It is critical, as we prepare to face off with whomever the Democrats select as their nominee, that we all follow John’s lead and run a respectful campaign focused on the issues and values that are important to the American people,” Davis wrote. “Throughout the primary election we saw John McCain reject the type of politics that degrade our civics, and this will not change as he prepares to run head-to-head against the Democratic nominee.”
