Racism? Really??

I'm getting really tired of Barack Obama claiming anyone who is against him is a racist. The latest, Geraldine Ferraro being called a racist by the Obama campaign. Obama’s campaign has been called a “historical candidacy” not by Ferraro, but by Obama’s own campaign. All she said was it wasn’t historical because he was a man from Illinois. Obviously it’s historical because he’s the first credible African American candidate for president. Obama’s wife Michelle made the ridiculous comment that she’d NEVER been proud of her country until now. Why now? Because people are turning out to vote for a MAN from Illinois? No, because he happens to be an African American man. Obviously, by the same stroke, Michelle Obama is a racist.

Yeah, Gerri's remark is about a racist as terrorist support of the D's, as re-invented by McCain.

I couldn't find the article quickly, but I did find a similarly - aghast blog (not a bloglet!) about the issue, in a similar vein to mine own: http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/archives/2008/03/mccain_says_terrorists_may_try_to_influence_election/

Please note: hundreds of thousands of morons will actually believe McCain.

I dunno... it seems like a headline like "Obama Wins Mississippi Primary" would be pretty historical.

Think about it: a black man wins the hearts and votes of a state mired in racism for decades. I think MLK would've been weeping for joy at that headline.
