Which side are you on?

Barack Obama's support. (Watch video.)

John McCain's support (and how he wishes they'd keep quiet about the lies he's been telling in the vain hope of being elected).

And what's with this "He's not an Arab, he's a decent man" crap? As though there weren't millions of Arabs walking around who are far more decent men than John McCain - and many of his supporters - will ever be.

In all seriousness: if I had to trust my life or that of a family member to a randomly chosen Arab, to John McCain, or to Sarah Palin, I wouldn't hesitate to pick the Arab.

I thought this was an excellent comment on the incident. Not only does it point out how McCain should have handled it if he'd had the vaguest idea about what it means to be an American, and what ideals Americans are supposed to uphold, but it quotes at length a Rush Limbaugh diatribe against Barack Obama and "anti-American Afrocentric black liberation theologists" who are apparently to blame for the present financial crisis. I wonder whether Rush Limbaugh believes that Muslim Satanists in China have been reprogramming God-fearing Americans' toys?

The amount of hate the Republicans are pour into the media amazes me. It's like they are not for anything but against Obama. The whole Republican race is about how bad the other guy is.

I pray this sort of hatred doesn't make it to the white house again.
