2004 Déja Vu All Over Again

John McCain and his surrogates have jumped into the deep, murky waters of the 'Obama is a terrorist-by-association' refrain, creating a climate of hate not seen in a long time. But more ominously, the subtext to the nonsense the GOP propaganda machine is spewing is this: 'that Muslim terrorrist/Manchurian candidate (Obama) enabled the collapse of the economy by forcing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to give mortgages to poor minorities (aka black and brown people). And now you, hard working white person, will have to pay for it. Imagine what he'll do once Barack Hussein Obama is in the White House?'

And the Obama campaign's response? Grandpa Simpson is "erratic". Yup, that's it. An honest, decent, qualified man is being swift-boated in a most despicable manner and his handlers are channeling the 2004 Kerry campaign. Meanwhile, the mainstream press won't even say a peep about the racist, anti-Semitic, treasonous, potentially terrorist ties of the McCain/Palin ticket. (Except Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow at MSNBC.)

Sen. McCain, in your blind quest for power you have lost whatever shred of true respectability you may have had. You are no better than scum like Sean Hannity. If there is a god you believe in, pray that the poison you have doused a segment of your ignorant followers with, does not come back to haunt you and stain your hands red. You are a sad, poor excuse of a man, sir.
