The Pot Calling The Kettle…Oh Wait I Better Not Use That Word

Listen I am sure racism will play a part in the way some people vote this election, but I am having a hard time believing John McCain’s ‘attack’ ad where he compares Obama to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears as an attack on Obama’s skin color.  The messiah sees things differently:

He’s spending an awful lot of time talking about me. You notice that?” Obama asked a crowd of just over one thousand seated in a university gym. “I haven’t seen an ad yet where he talks about what he’s going to do. And the reason is because those folks know they don’t have any good answers, they know they’ve had their turn over the last eight years and made a mess of things.”

“They know that you’re not real happy with them and so the only way they figure they’re going to win this election is if they make you scared of me,” Obama continued, repeating an attack from earlier in the day. “What they’re saying is ‘Well, we know we’re not very good but you can’t risk electing Obama. You know, he’s new, he doesn’t look like the other presidents on the currency, he’s a got a funny name.’”

I simply can’t believe McCain is talking about his opponent.  Never in the history of politics have two candidates talked about each during the general election.  The fear monger. Sarcasm aside, I just want to know if Obama said McCain did’t have any answers with a straight face?  Wasn’t Barack using a stupid ad as a reason to not talk about his answers? Oh the irony.

UPDATE:  Here the ad for reference

    He thinks everybody’s talking about him? That’s so Paris and Britney!

    Look at the ad with the sound muted. The visuals are amazing and make Obama look like a hero. He looks like somebody ready to lead. His smile, his confident posture, his steadiness at the lectern, the throngs waving American flags. It’s not a hit ad. Anyone looking at the ad will answer, “is he ready to lead?” with a yes after seeing the ad.

    A Reagan advisor once commented after a negative-sounding news story, that they couldn’t ask for a better story. The narrative, while negative, went to the background, while the visuals of Reagan smiling amongst a crowd of flag-waving supporters took greater importance.
