The Winner of Debate II? "That One"

This artlcle leading up to the debate had the McCain campaign all set to usher in its message for the last 30 days of the campaign: "We may not be good for your bank account, your mortgage, your health care, or your job security -- but none of that will matter if you are dead.

John McCain: If You Want to Live."

This is fear-mongering at its best right here. Even Bush couldnt take it this far.

Then, during the debate, John McCain refered to Barack Obama as "that one".

Now they are calling Obama "traitor" and "terrorist" at McCain/Palin rallies. Lewis compared his campaign rhetoric to segregationist George Wallace.

Then at another rally, the mic was being passed around and landed in the hand of an elderly woman who said: "I don't trust Obama, I have read about him. He's an Arab."
McCain quickly grabbed the mic and said:"No, ma'am, He's a decent, family man, [a] citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues and that's what this campaign is all about."

Its true that Obama isnt of arab descent, but the way McCain puts it sounds so racist... As if an "arab" can not be a decent person, or that a person can not be both an "arab" and a citizen? WTF?

The racism in this campaign is so unbelievable. It really makes me SICK!
Who are these people yelling "kill him"? Do they actually think they are correct?
