Shocked, I tell you

"I'm shocked, shocked that a black leader of the civil rights movement would notice that we Republicans have been fishing for anger from our supporters."

"Sir, here're your Southern strategy winnings."

(sotto voce)
"Oh, thank you."

It's ironic that the GOP was the party of Lincoln whereas the Democrats were the party of Segregation before 1960. Its a shame really that the Dems would go from a party of discrimination against minorities to a party that sells them a message of victimhood.

THE SO CALLED VP CANDIDATE PALIN SAYING HE IS "PALING AROUND WITH TERRORIST" IS MOST AND TRULY SHOCKING. MCCAIN CANNOT BE TRUSTED AFTER HE SAID HE WAS GOING TO RUN A CLEAN CAMPAIGN AND LOOK WHAT A DIVISIVE MESS HE HAS CREATED, EVEN WITHIN HIS OWN PARTY - HE HAS LOST CONTROL. AND HE DID NOT PROVIDE THE LEADERSHIP DURING THE BAILOUT EITHER SHOWBOATING SUSPENDING HIS CAMPAIGN AND NOT ABLE TO GET HIS PARTY TO PASS THE BILL IN SUCH CRUCIAL TIMES. ENOUGH WITH THE DESPERATION TOO.

Come on folks. Think about this. Addressing a crowd from a stage you can pretend you didn’t hear all those nasty things heard at McCain and Palin rally’s. Having a woman right in front of you talking into a microphone with camera’s rolling what could McCain do?

When I saw his reaction though, I thought, well you are finally being honorable John. Not five minutes later I switched stations and there was an that ad about Obama palling around with terrorists.

As far as I am concerned, John McCain wants to be President so badly, he has thrown his honor out the window

McCain certainly has got chutzpah. He unleashes the pitbull with lipstick to go out and terrorize his constituency. She did so, VERY effectively. The facts be damned, she certainly got the mouth-breathing, fact-ignoring, e-mail believing spreaders of internet rumor to stampede right out the gate, and over farmer John.

Can you believe that people still think Obama is an Arab Muslim?! Can you believe someone that ignorant got into a McPalin rally, and presented her ignorance before the world?! (not to mention a VP candidate all but calling Barack a terrorist!)

I certainly can. When you have the tools of mass-distortion at work, Rush, Hannity et al, and unwilling to hold themselves to any moral standard when it comes to achieving their goal of a McCain presidency, this is EXACTLY what happens.

Congressman Lewis is EXACTLY right in calling them out on it.

I applaud McCain for recognizing he's pushed the ignorant masses too far, and trying to reign in their stupidity, but it's too little, too late. I'm now embarrassed for him and his people, I wonder how many (if any) will recognize just how far over the line they've gone?

Too little too late Republican Senator McCain.....When the lady said that she was scared and he is a Muslim, you said Senator Obama was an honest decent family man. You only said that when the cameras were on. You and Governor Palin have accused him as a man no one knows when you have served with him as a United States Senator. Perhaps you do not know him because he is a threat to your unseating as president. The American public until now did not know you and your judgement...now you are an open book...Your association with now felon Charles Keating and the destruction of thousands of people's life savings in Arizona and other states. After all you were cited as using "Poor Judgement". Your selection of Governor Sarah Palin who was recently cited for ethics charges and "Abuse of Power" in her handling of Troopergate. And even more important, your 90-95% vote of the failed Bush economic, domestic and intenational policies that have caused corporation and individual bankruptcies and home foreclosures throughout our country. These are the Issues and why many will not vote Republican!!
