Did The Old Man Play the Race Card????

Some mainstream media outlets are debating whether a recent attack ad on your boy Barack played the race card. Time Magazine sees McCain being slick here and dangling race out there for white folks to bite on:

When politicians interject race into a campaign, they seldom do it directly. Consider McCain’s new ad, which the campaign says it will be airing nationally …

This is hardly subtle: Sinister images of two black men, followed by one of a vulnerable-looking elderly white woman.

Let me stipulate: Obama’s Fannie Mae connections are completely fair game. But this ad doesn’t even mention a far more significant tie–that of Jim Johnson, the former Fannie Mae chairman who had to resign as head of Obama’s vice presidential search team after it was revealed he got a sweetheart deal on a mortgage from Countrywide Financial. Instead, it relies on a fleeting and tenuous reference in a Washington Post Style section story to suggest that Obama’s principal economic adviser is former Fannie Mae Chairman Frank Raines. Why? One reason might be that Johnson is white; Raines is black.

McCain’s camp already knew Raines wasn’t an Obama’s advisor.

    All McCain needs to do is throw in a half naked white woman telling Barack to call her sometime, and he can win. They think using the same kind of ad that the Repubs used against Harold Ford Jr. will work, and it won’t!

    As ususal the video won’t play for me. And what the hell is up with Countrywide? They also gave Kwame Kilpatrick a sweetheart deal on a mortgage in Florida. Are they under investigation?

    That mess that went down in Tennessee worked partially because Ford was single. Michelle won’t b having ANY of it!

    I can’t get that daggone ghetto link 2 work either. If this McSame ad is anything like their “Obama and Kwame Kilpatrick r alike because they’re black” ads, then I really don’t want 2 c it.

    I mean, it’s not like Barack voted with Kwame Kilpatrick 90% of the time or anything…
