Remember when I said...

...that the McCain camp would try and scare voters with a Divide and Petrify strategy?

Check out this AP story, it looks like the Obama camp is trying to get voters to see these tactics for what they are: pathetic.

This is the part that I hate about political elections. Obama has a point that McCain seems to be spending more time trying to run Obama into the ground in regards to his character, than focusing on the issues that people want to hear about.
For some reason this keeps happening with Obama. When he and Hillary had that one debate, how much time was wasted beating dead horses? 45 minutes? What about the issues? What about the resolutions that the American public wants to hear about? I want to hear more on their plans...what they indend to do in office. Not the mud slinging. I know it's all part of the game, but geez is it annoying.

And, my personal opinion, Obama IS black and race IS going to be brought into it. I mean, it's just one of those things and racism is still alive and well all over the world. So him being African-American is going to be brought up by someone whether people feel it's appropriate or not. Everyone keeps making a big deal out of him possibly being the "first black president" because.. well.. it IS a big deal. And it's about freakin' time, too. When Hillary was still assuming that she had it in the bag, it was all about her being a woman. There are still a lot of old fashioned people in this country that Do remain hung up on things like race and gender, and it's bound to happen.

Okay, I'll shut up now.
Tell your wife to come out of hiding. I need more funnies from her.
