Time: McCain plays the race card

Posted on Fri, Sep 19, 2008 at 11:37 AM

The mag's blog calls out McCain's new ad, which Time believes implies that Black Man Obama and Some Other Scary Black Man (with whom Obama has no connection) are going to raid the piggy band of little old white ladies.

Judge for yourself. I could go either way. At the risk of being hypersensitive though, it would be naive to think that the McPalin ticket wasn't going to inject, subliminally if not explicitly, some form of racial innuendo. Honestly, all they have left right now, given the state of the economy, is to hope that rural white voters in Pennsylvania, Virginia and Ohio won't vote for the black guy, economy be damned.
