You know its bad when David Gergan reminds George Will that Southerners knows what "uppity" means.

This Presidential (I use the term loosely) race has been circling the drain for some time. McCain's insistence on using racially charged themes in advertising, speeches and actions is sickening.

Bush has made the office of the President and festering boil on the nation and John McCain is taking the Bush Legacy and making it worse if you can imagine that.

I am unsure anyone wants to live in McCain's America unless they are the worst of human beings. And if that is the crowd you are collecting under your shadow, what does that day about you?

Storm, I totally agree with you about McCain. But I'm not sure that I want to live in an Obama world, either. He came out in support of off-shore drilling today. What the hell! What other Republican platform issues is he going to support next? I'm taking this November off.

Ok, lets get this correct. Obama did not say he is in favor of off shore drilling. What he did say was that in order to reach a bipartisan agreement, he would consider off shore drilling as part of a comprehensive plan, so long as such drilling was done in a environmentally sound way. He said basically that he wouldn't insist on no off shore drilling as part of the bargaining process on a comprehensive energy plan. There is a big difference.

The "McCain" world I am speaking of is a world of racism and bigotry.

McCain really knows how to blow the shit out of his dog whistle.
