The Race Card

Just a few days before the election, the Pennsylvania GOP (allegedly, PA is where this originated) pulls the race + patriotism card, again. I’m not sure if this is like a desperate last swing in the dark by a campaign that knows they’ve lost, or if McCain and friends are actually banking on this working. People say they don’t like negative ads, but it’s been proven that they work. Maybe the GOP is hoping to stir up some last minute anxiety about Obama and his angry black man pastor. The best thing for Obama to do in my opinion is to either not respond, or to do a kind of political sidestep and make the more righteous point that negative attack ads won’t fix the economy.
