(As noted in an editorial in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:)

"On his campaign bus recently, Sen. John McCain told reporters, 'I hated the gooks. I will hate them as long as I live.'"

I won't be looking to the McCain campaign for any speeches or workshops on racial sensitivity any time soon...

Rod, you just don't understand. This is the internet. This is a blog. This is a blog oriented toward black gay men. We don't want to see evidence and proof of the Republican attack machine against Barack Obama or what will may happen if he is the nominee. We also don't want to be continually reminded how behind the ball his campaign or supporters are in pushing back. We would much rather go ballistic on rumors and innuendo about "the Clintons" and their "dirty tricks."

Please get with the program! :)

Yes, more unsubstantiated rumors please!

Umm, it is very interesting that people are not more outraged. If you substituted "Clinton" for McCain there would be 10,000 comments by now.

Actually, if I may--Yes, Rod, we DO want to know what the GOP and the Christofascists and the McCainanites are up to.

Obama supporters (such as myself) need to know what we're up against, might need a reality-check, or heaven-forbid, might actually need to know how Hillary-leaners think or how they look at polls or campaign tactics, so we can sharpen our own Pro-bama arguments and support our candidate with a variety of opinions. Being open to that is the Obama way, and knowing the dirt that's being thrown--and putting it out there in the open--is also the Obama way.

Going ballistic isn't the Obama way. Have we ever seen Barack screaming to the cameras "Shame on you John McCain!" or "Shame on you, Hillary Clinton!"? Uh, no. He's the photo they should put on Wikipedia for the definition of "calm, cool, collected."

When I encounter the occasional overheated Obamatons online, I remind them about what my mama used to tell me if I wondered if I was doing something wrong--think about Jesus being in the room. Sometimes Obama supporters need to be reminded before they speak, to consider if Barack were listening, if he'd "approve of this message."

Keep up the great work, Rod, and put it all out there. We can take it. If not, we don't deserve to win. :)

"We don't want to see evidence and proof of the Republican attack machine against Barack Obama or what will may happen if he is the nominee."

What "Republican attack machine"? There is no such thing. We're all "post-partisan" now, lol. The "Republican attack machine" was only a figment of "the Clintons" imagination ...

Taylor Siluwé

Did John ol' McCain really say "I hate the gooks"?

LOL!!

I gotta google that. This is priceless.

Andy Niable

(Correction to my original post--the "gooks" remark was not made recently by McCain, but back in the 2000 campaign. Still there was resistance from him to apologize, though he reportedly finally did.)

>>>Have we ever seen Barack screaming to the cameras "Shame on you John McCain!" or "Shame on you, Hillary Clinton!"?

No, Barack doesn't do that, he just tells his campaign and surrogates to blame racism or Bill and Hillary Clinton for everything, from crazy Drudge stories to Jeremiah Wright.

It seems that on many blogs the Obamatons are looking at the polls, Fox News and CNN and are coming to the realization that Obama is mortally wounded. BUT they still think he can recover because it's soooo important to nominate poor Barack. I'm totally with Rod on this one. Barack will probably get the nomination but this Wright hate speech will unleash an army of GOP attack dogs on Obama because he spent so much time FOCUSING ON HILLARY and NOT HIS OWN BAGGAGE. There is no way the GOP and many conservative to moderate Democrats will allow that pastor to preach "God Damn America" at the White House.
