At work today. Can't write much, but the 'Hot Chicks Dig Obama' ad from McCain is taken right out of the Corker v Ford playbook.
Check out the newest ad from the Rove-McCain sleaze machine. Type 'Hot Chicks Dig Obama' into Google and the link for the add from Talking Points Memo pops right up.
The important point to note is that the add only features white people, predominantly young, white, women, talking about how much they love Obama.
Don't roughly as many men love Obama as Women? Don't Black people - clearly - love Obama as a candidate? What about Latino's, who support Obama 2:1 over McCain. Nope. McNasty seems exclusively interested in the caucasian impression of Obama, particularly the young white 19 - 21 year old girl demographic.
As it was written on TPM, 'Can Obama call me be that far off' as an ad?
My only purpose with this is to try to alert as many people as possible to McCain's racist intentions so someone with authority can figure out a way to call him on it that prevents his campaign from whining like a troupe of Howler Monkey's. (God I hate the Republicans.)
Why would they draw attention to how popular and well liked a Candidate is? Are we supposed to hate our elected officials, really?
Let's call this subtle race-baiting what it is. Racism.
