The Fine Republican Art Of Political Misdirection

I'm wondering when folks are going to start asking about John McCain's record on civil rights and on issues near and dear to the hearts of people of color. Ain't this the dude that voted against the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Holiday? You really have to hate black folk to deny yourself a day off!

Professor Tracey-

yes, that's the one. not only did he vote against it. he voted against it repeatedly...

...then he evolved. like everyone else that now love love loves Dr. King. i predict in a few years, he will claim he marched with Dr. King.

Professor Tracey,

I'm going to post this cartoon too. If that's not cool, just drop me a line or I'll check back here.

I think that in the U.S., controversy about race and tradition always trump a candidate's ideas about the war, the bad economy, etc etc.

I support Obama over Hillary. But, I do question his judgement in remaining closely tied to the Reverend while holding presidential/political aspirations. I could've told him that his "enemies" would use Wright against him (and I've never taken a class on politics). Obama comes off as very naive in this case.

They should've studied up on the Right Wing's Obsession with destroying the Clintons. The Repubs freakin found old girlfriends of Bill Clinton to speak out!!

As Jon Stewart depicted on The Daily Show last week, The Reverend is like a big bucket of yummy ice cream for cable news and Obama's enemies. The Rev is the gift that keeps on giving.
