Default "Barack Obama is not even worthy to shine the shoes of John McCain,"

The above is a quote from the McCain campaign for you to agree or disagree with. Is this what it has come down to?

Deborah Johns, who the PAC's website describes as "one of [Fox News Channel's] favorite military moms," spent most of her speech emphasizing Obama's lack of qualifications to head the American military when compared with veteran McCain.
"Barack Obama is not even worthy to shine the shoes of John McCain," Johns said. But she also hit Obama on economic issues, telling the two dozen supporters gathered at the rally that he would be "nothing more than a modern day Robin Hood."

'Shine his shoes'? - isn't that a rather stupid and racist remark?
'Modern day Robin Hood'? - now THAT'S what we really could use, unfortunately, he isn't, though he will tap the wealthy a little, to lift the burden on the middle class burden a bit.

Hay-zeus! These republicans do not even know when they are being racist! First McCain said he'll WHIP Obama in the debate ... now he's not worthy to shine McCain's shoes? The worst is that crazy GOP woman who made the Obama food stamps with ribs, watermelon and kool-aid.

The republican party is toast, burned toast. Not even Newt Gingerich can save it. I wonder if McCain is going to go the way of Lieberman and declare himself an independent.

The pattern appears to continue as these folks seem to have problems appealing to or recognizing all Americans.

Damn! Having they totally abandoned even the pretense of subtlety?

Oh, yeah - they've never been subtle, have they?

ok, so basically people can no longer talk in this military dictatorship you obviously want. we are now losing words. you can't say you are going to whip someone. if he had said he was going to beat him, it would have referenced the rodney king case. I really admire the far left and their desire to return to the days of oppression and slavery. yes you can, turn back the clock 150 years.

Next thing you know they'll be calling to "hang Obama high" in the town square. What a bunch of freaks.
