McCain has your excuse right hereThe entire point of McCain's recent ads is to give the independents who have typically voted Republican in the recent past an EXCUSE not to vote for Obama.
They know as well as anyone else that McCain is Bush's third term. They know he has no new ideas. They know they will continue to pay the price.
But its real hard for them to vote for a black guy and/or a Democrat. So McCain's campaign gives them all kinds of excuses. He's presumptuous (an uppity nigger). He's wussy (gay). He's a celebrity (gay). He's elite (gay). He's dangerous to white women (a nigger). His wife is too angry (a nigger). It goes on and on.
Yes, its a racist dogwhistle but the idea is to appeal to people who would never consider themselves racist but just need an excuse to vote against their own self-interests.
