For Exhibit A of why many of us who actually value an education, and whose morals have developed a little bit from what they were 50 years ago, have left the Republican party, watch this clip of a recent McCain rally. In it we see McCain addressed by some complete racist ignoramuses dying to say "I don't trust that nigger", but having to dress their comments up in safer terms, like "Arab". This is the modern Republican Party. Isn't it pretty? Look at the people in that video. It looks and sounds like a Klan meeting.
And yet there is McCain denying and discouraging the very same ideas that his running mate and campaign are working so hard to place in people's minds. Is this a sign of extreme disorganization, or some sort of good-cop bad-cop routine to make McCain look noble while firing up the Dixie South? If the latter, McCain has to know he can't win that way. America has made a lot of progress in the arena of racism, whatever work remains. There just aren't enough racists left for McCain to win with them.
I'll give McCain the benefit of the doubt and take his comments in the clip above as sincere. Good for you John, glad to see some integrity again for a change. Perhaps the pride of the soldier in you has finally said "enough" to this mudslinging dishonest campaign. But that won't be plausible if you allow Sarah "never learnin" Palin to keep spewing and inciting venom and violence. That would expose you as a charlatan, only feigning integrity for political expediency.
Make us believe you love America once again John McCain: make Palin stop all this ridiculous talk suggesting Obama is in league with terrorists. There is still time to lose with dignity.
