Obama and the Race Card:

"We know what kind of campaign [the Republicans are] going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid. They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?"--Barack Obama.

Yes, more proof that sitting in a pew listening to the hateful 'reverend' Wright's sermons for twenty years really did affect Obama; this vile rhetoric didn't just fly over his head as he'd have bitter white folk believe.

(Tammy Bruce's site has an excellent post on this "hope and change" racist. Check it out! )

The funniest thing about Obama's juvenile pre-emptive playing of the race card is that he did it from behind a laughable knock-off of the Presidential Seal:

Featuring an eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch, the seal contained a Latin phrase for a touch of gravitas that roughly translates to "Yes, We Can."

Asked to explain the new seal, Obama spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, "It's a mix of presidential politics and a call for hope and change."

Snarked John McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds, "I think we can all agree that we need presidential candidates that are serious enough not to play make-believe on the campaign trail."

"It's laughable, ridiculous, preposterous and revealing all at the same time," Bounds said.

Hey, and isn't it illegal, too?
