"No ma'am. He's a decent family man, a citizen that I just happen to have..."

... been running a campaign against, declaring him to be a terrorist sympathiser. Christ, when you reach out to the maniacs, don't look so alarmed when they rally to your cause.

I just found this totally hilarious. To be honest, I found the whole Barack's Middle Name Is Hussein OMFG!!! thing to be a totally pointless tactic: Surely anyone who might be affected by that argument was never going to vote for a black guy anyway? It's lovely to see it come back and bite McCain.

I just got off the phone to my friend in Michigan, who was turning somersaults over this... she thinks the Obama campaign cannot lose now McCain has shown himself to have such deluded fuckwits on side as a result of his lies and slurs against his opponent. I hope she's right.

Ugh, fucking McCain. Too little, too late, asshole. What amused/frightened/enraged me the most was how McCain (and probably his dumb followers) seem to think that being an Arab and being a decent family man are somehow mutually exclusive. The right answer would've been "Actually, crazy lady, Obama is of Kenyan descent on his father's side, which means he's not an Arab. Plus, he's a decent family man, etc. etc."

The thing that sickens me the most is that this campaign is allowing racist people to indulge their racism in a public forum, because they think they can hide it under the guise of political affiliation. Like, "I don't hate Obama because he's black, I hate him because he's a Democrat. But he looks like a furriner and an Ay-rab and so he must die!"

I like the contrasting of "Arab" with "decent family man".
