Can we get back to the issues now?
Addendum: The New York Times says it’s time for McCain to anti up.
It is an injustice, a legacy of the racist threads of this nation’s history, but prominent African-Americans are regularly called upon to explain or repudiate what other black Americans have to say, while white public figures are rarely, if ever, handed that burden.Senator John McCain has continued to embrace a prominent white supporter, Pastor John Hagee, whose bigotry matches that of Mr. Wright. Mr. McCain has not tried hard enough to stop a race-baiting commercial — complete with video of Mr. Wright — that is being run against Mr. Obama in North Carolina.
Granted, Hagee did not marry McCain and his wife, nor did he baptize McCain’s children. So basically, unlike Obama, McCain remains “loyal” purely for politics. What a relief.
