These “Debates” and I use that term loosely, are colossal wastes of time. Did you really learn anything? Did they really say anything of import? What we really have here a two establishment politicians engaged in an obligatory battle in a long war that is all but over. John McCain has lost the biggest prize in American politics to a Negro, an establishment Negro, but a Negro nonetheless. He’s obviously having trouble coping with that. Ignoring the humiliating finality of his impending defeat, he launches into the long telegraphed salvo of Ayers and ACORN.
William Ayers, 63, the 60’s radical who blew some s*it up to stop the Vietnam War and in solidarity with his oppressed Negro brethren-harmed nobody, and was allowed to re-enter society without doing any jail time and become a part of the Chicago establishment as a member of the faculty of the University of Illinois.
Victims of COINTELPRO, Ayers and his wife got off on a technicality when they were able to prove prosecutorial misconduct. Ayers and Obama met up later when Barack was an adult and they served on two community boards. One board distributed grants given by Ambassador Walter Annenberg, a Reagan era Republican, to Chicago schools. Ayers later contributed $250 bucks to one of Barack’s legislative campaigns. That’s it. There is nothing more.
Ayers is this year’s boogie man, a latter day Willie Horton in whiteface. Never before has a white senior citizen been used to make a young black man seem dangerous. It is absolutely ridiculous. Running with the terrorist meme, they have managed to whip the white party’s adherents into a frenzy over this lame bit of deliberate, racist character assassination.
Delegate Jeff Fredrick, the Chair of the Virginia GOP, a wingnut I have personally campaigned against, made the absurd assertion that both Obama and Osama Bin Laden had friends who had bombed the pentagon. The lynch mobs that double for McCain-Palin campaign rallies have gotten carried away calling Obama an “Arab,” a “terrorist,” or my personal favorite, “Kill him.” Frederick now claims to have been kidding and McCain made a big show of being offended by being called on the carpet by John Lewis for their calculated attempts to stir up white resentment against Obama.
The ACORN allegations are straight outta of the Fox News playbook of red herrings recycled from 2004. McCain’s attempt to link Obama to this group’s sometimes sloppy voter registration methods are both laughable and pathetic. Lazy people’s attempts to pad their paychecks by submitting bogus voter registration forms do not constitute a conspiracy to commit voter fraud. Voter fraud is when you deliberately purge 57,000 people from the voting rolls, 88% of whom are black, for the “crime” of having names similar to those of convicted felons in state and out of state with no other identifying data.
For those of you who are slow, Republican, or both, I am referencing Florida in 2000. Finally, voter fraud is when you deliberately screw up elections administration so that Democrats of color have to wait in the rain for 4, 6, 8, or 10 hours on Election Day to cast a ballot like they did in Ohio in 2004.
Nobody pushing the Acorn meme should be taken seriously-especially John McCain.
This is all McCain had against Obama and its why he is losing.
