McCain Goes Racist

McCain falsely accuses Obama of "playing the race card" and thereby goes racist himself.

McCain took on the role of aggrieved victim, his campaign waiting almost a day after Obama's remarks to charge that he had injected race into the presidential campaign. "Barack Obama has played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck. Its divisive, negative, shameful and wrong," McCain campaign manager Rick Davis said.
That's one way to do it. Accuse the other guy about what you yourself are doing. Making it explicit puts it into the discussion. John McCain said he'd rather lose the election than be wrong on the war. But he's not above the politics of personal destruction and running a racist campaign.
