Really, you have to admire the chutzpah of it all. You have to really be impressed by the brazenness of the GOP, the party that was just a few weeks ago canonizing Jesse Helms, now accusing the black guy of using race in electoral politics:
John McCain told CNN Thursday it is fair for his campaign manager to claim Barack Obama is playing ‘the race card.’
“I’m sorry to say that it is. It’s legitimate,” McCain told CNN’s John King. “And there’s no place in this campaign for that. There’s no place for it and we shouldn’t be doing it.”
Earlier Thursday, McCain campaign manager Rick Davis lashed out at the Democratic presidential candidate over his comments that Republicans are making an issue of his race.
“Barack Obama has played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck. It’s divisive, negative, shameful and wrong,” Davis said in a statement sent to reporters.
And the media will let them get away with it. Again, it is just impressive. They have no shame, the media has no clue, and we are going to have to deal with this crap for the next few months.
