The Hate-Talk Express – Is This Really the Way You Want to Go Out, Senator McCain?
By Mary Lyon

Dear Senator McCain,

One way or another, you reach an end on November 4th. We do know that for certain, even though no one can say what kind of end it will be – whether the road takes you to the Oval Office or to the finish of your long-held ambition to be President. But one thing has ended already: your integrity, and any protestations that your campaign isn’t as racist and hate-ridden as hell.  This is how you want to close at least this towering phase of your career?

Sorry to be that blunt, but that’s how it looks. That’s how it looks whenever the goons (predominantly Anglo) at your rallies start shouting “Terrorist!” and “Traitor!” and “Kill him!” – and when an unfortunate female low-information voter insists Barack Obama is an Arab to be feared and mewls a wimped-out “no?” when you attempt an equally wimped-out correction of her faulty opinion. That same woman later told reporters that even a personal reassurance from you that “he’s not” didn’t change her mind. Your campaign’s denunciation of Congressman John Lewis’s complaint about how you and your running mate are playing with fire and racist hatred speaks a lot more forcefully.
