McCain drops advisor who penned racist Obama column

The racist rhetoric that has been popping up on the McCain campaign trail as of late doesn’t seem to be just the work of an out of control mob: McCain’s campaign organizers are also getting in on the act. McCain’s Virginia campaign organizer, Bobby May, wrote a racist column titled “The (clarified) Platform of Barack Hussein Obama” last week that “satirized” Obama by claiming he’d “pay Ludacris to paint the White House black,” change the stars on the American flag to a “star and crescent logo,” he’d change the currency to feature images of Oprah and Ludacris (this guy’s knowledge of hip-hop seems relegated to people Bill O’Reilly hates), and he’d use the drug war money to give cheap heroin to his constituency.

 

At least McCain has shown some hopes to quell the racist rhetoric: he fired May today. But it seems like firing May was every bit as politically motivated as stopping a person last week who asked if Obama was a terrorist, as McCain’s campaign are the people that are putting it out there that Obama is a terrorist. Getting to fire and tell people different makes McCain look like a good guy.

 

Obama’s campaign hasn’t released an official statement as of yet, but McCain firing May is sure to quell any major points Obama could have made off McCain employing him. [All Hip Hop]

The McCain campaign has basically turned into a third grader who, after losing a dispute in the sandbox, starts throwing sand at his opponent.

ok people get it out. hes black black black and he is heading toward the white house at a rapid pace. the funny thing is if senator obama was a republican, black people would hate him and if he was elected, we celebrate the history side of it. but hes black and a democrat (the average black persons party) so just accept it. how many race remarks are left. someone should just come out and call him a ni99er and get it over with. trust me he will not budge.

also, to all the racist democrats who turned their back on their party because of the black candidate, should remain republican because your not welcome back come election day and beyond. you've sold your soul and you can safely say you're an official bonifide racist.

McCain hoped to harness an ugly, slavering beast comprised of far-right paranoia, hatred, fear, prejudice, and ignorance, and ride it to victory, but now he is starting realize that many Americans dislike his substitution of slander for an actual discussion of the issues.

His zig-zagging on slandering Obama is just one more example of his increasingly erratic behavior and poor judgment, and yet more proof that he has completely lost his moral center--the result of selling his soul to the Karl Rove faction of the Republican party. He is retracting some of his slanders, not because he has repented of them, but because he sees that they have backfired by alienating the undecided voters that he needs if he is to have any hope of winning.

McCain's claim to be a 'maverick' are absurd-he has voted with Bush 90% of the time, has over 80 lobbyists on his staff, and has elected to veer to the far right in his campaign, to the point of taking advice from Karl Rove. A better description would indeed be erratic, as he claims Obama would raise taxes more than he would one moment, and then the next moment comes up his very own $300,000,000 pork-barrel give-away program to people who borrowed money they couldn't possibly pay back.

If you are enjoying the meltdown of the banking system and the Dow at 9000, you'll love a McCain Presidency--McCain was right there with Bush deregulating the banks and freeing them from the constraints that previously prevented this kind of greed-driven disaster.
