"Sen. McCain and his operatives are gambling that they can distract you with smears rather than talk to you about substance. They'd rather try to tear our campaign down than lift this country up," Obama said at an event in Asheville, North Carolina. "That's what you do when you're out of touch, out of ideas, and running out of time," he said.

From now until Election Day, we can expect to hear a lot more from Republicans about William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Frank Raines, and other irrevelant people and issues. John McCain has nothing left but mud to sling at his opponent. If Tuesday night's debate in Nashville is anything like the one in Oxford, I'm not sure I can watch the whole thing. McCain's contempt and anger were so obvious and so close to the surface that it's a wonder he didn't self-destruct before our very eyes. Maybe he will this week.

This info was emailed to me on Friday and I've forwarded it to several people, but just in case you haven't seen it, please consider

How racism works:

What if John McCain were a former president of the Harvard Law Review? What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class?

What if Obama were a member of the Keating-5?
What if McCain were a charismatic, eloquent speaker?

What if McCain were still married to the first woman he said 'I do' to? What if Obama were the candidate who left his first wife after she no longer measured up to his standards?

What if Michelle Obama were a wife who not only became addicted to pain killers, but acquired them illegally through her charitable organization? What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?

If these questions reflected reality, do you really believe the election numbers would be as close as they are?

This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and minimizes positive qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative qualities in another when there is a color difference.
