A flyer is  being sent out to households in Virginia.  In it it depecits a dark skinned man and the words...

"America must look evil in the eye and never flinch"


A spokesmoron for the RNC said that they could not say whether the man in the flyer was Obama.  

I won't post the flyer here but here is a link to it:

I have no idea if its Obama or not. But surely a spokesperson for the RNC would know if it was Obama or not. It is undoubtedly a racist ad.  This kind of bullshit racist stuff needs to be stopped.

This comes from the party of the nominee who refuses to denounce and reject the supporters at his rallies that yell out threats of violence to Barack Obama.  In fact, he explicity said, last night:

It seems that MCain  won't shut his racist supporters up becuase he thinks its the only way to win.  

Unfortantly for him, I don't think it will work this time.  During this time of people worrying about their financies, how to feed their kids, have health care, stay in their homes, McCain and the RNC are resorting to more and more racist attacks.   As someone once said

"Its the economy, stupid"

In this case, the stupid is McCain and the RNC.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
