McCain vs. North Carolina GOP

This is John McCain on the North Carolina ad, reminding a lot of conservatives why they can’t stand him:

“They’re not listening to me because they’re out of touch with reality and the Republican Party. We are the party of Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan and this kind of campaigning is unacceptable,” McCain told NBC’s “Today” Show.

I’ve watched the ad five times now, and I still can’t see what’s so unacceptable about it. McCain has now declared it beyond the pale for Republicans to criticize Barack Obama for his close spiritual and personal relationship with a vile, American hating, pastor.

This controversial YouTube video, in which Obama and Jeremiah Wright are juxtaposed with clips of Malcom X while Public Enemy blasts in the background, is an example of how you could use the Wright relationship in a race-baiting way that is quite unacceptable.

But just because you mention Wright and Obama in the same sentence, and they’re both black, it doesn’t make it racist. No more than if McCain were a longtime member of a church with an extremist white Christian pastor and Democrats hit him for it.
