Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

McCain and his "base," the media, keep bringing up Obama's comments about how 'he doesn't look like those other presidents on our currency' as crazy. They claim McCain never said anything like that!


It is exactly what McCain, himself, said in this ad. I am sick of these political tactics. And WHY is our media so blinded by this man and not calling him out on this?

The Brittney and Paris was shameful and a two-fer. Choosing young, blond female celebrities is integral to both the usual attempt to feminize the Democrat but at the same time it demonizes the black man after our white blond women. (By they way -- Paris' parents are huge contributors to his campaign -- how do they feel about you making fun of their daughter? If this is how you treat your biggest contributors, gawd help the rest of us!!) The repeated use by McCain and his minions all week of the word "presumptuous" was an obvious homonym for "uppity" which is code for "uppity-doesn't-know-his-place-nigger." This is coded racism and McCain has the MSM at his beck and call to ignore the messages.

So much for elevated campaigning. McCain is showing his true colors now and they are racist.

UPDATE: Kathy Hilton responds:
I've been asked again and again for my response to the now infamous McCain celebrity ad. I actually have three responses. It is a complete waste of the money John McCain's contributors have donated to his campaign. It is a complete waste of the country's time and attention at the very moment when millions of people are losing their homes and their jobs. And it is a completely frivolous way to choose the next President of the United States.

Smart lady!
