I am going to write a normal, Monday Monday – Race Report in a bit but first I just have to air a grievance.
The robo-call smear campaign that is coming out of the McCain camp is the most shameful political trick since Bush robo-called against McCain in 2000 saying he’d had a black child in an illicit affair (truth – he adopted a kid from Bangladesh). The McCain smears are lies of the same order. The country is in crises and this and an SNL appearance by Palin is the best the party can do? Not only is it morally bankrupt, it is pathetic and desperate.
Colin Powell has said it much better than I ever could. It takes about 7 minutes to listen to what he has to say. And please don’t belittle the man by saying he is supporting Obama because they are both black. How insulting. Powell has clearly thought this through and if you think he’s just supporting a brother you are absolutely obligated to listen to what he has to say.
