Seriously, what else could it be? Because Barack Obama, who transcends race and is the only hope to bring us all together in racial harmony, would never, ever play the race card, right?
“What they’re saying is ‘Well, we know we’re not very good but you can’t risk electing Obama. You know, he’s new, he doesn’t look like the other presidents on the currency, he’s a got a funny name.’” (source, thanks to HotAir)
Be sure to follow the link to the TNR story at that HotAir post. I might be wrong about Barack Obama meaning his ears, because before the above, we have this:
“We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid.
“They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black? (source)
I suppose the one good result of this would be that if Barack Obama loses, and also does not get 100% of the black vote (115% in Chicago), he would have finally proved that black people can also be racist. Maybe he does transcend the racial divide after all.
I hope Jeremiah Wright can forgive me for this post, which only exists because I'm white and Barack Obama has big ears.
