Dogwhistles and Levees

.
Last night, Sarah Palin scathingly attacked Barack Obama's work as a community organizer.

Today, on his radio show, the chortly extremist redneck radio voice, Rush Limpballs, cited as the example of a community organizer Al Sharpton.

And then there's good ol' goober-state Rep. Lynn "10 Commandments" Westmoreland, saying Obama is uppity. Asked if that was what he meant to say, he repeated yes, uppity.

The dogwhistle politics of race-baiting and fearmongering that Lee Atwater once was so proud of is alive and well and slithering through the Republican Party again. That which John McCain once decried when used against his own family, he now owns, lock, stock and dogwhistle.

But hey, what's wrong with that, right? After all, Sarah Palin's a bold choice, a "hockey mom," and John McCain, he's a maverick with scars and was a "fighter."

Meanwhile, the rightwing racist bile is rising higher and higher, flowing up out of the sewers, and threatening to overtake the levees of democracy again. Who will be left to fight against it?

Sandy--

Did you forget to mention that he was a POW? Haven't seen that infor in, gosh, a nano-second or so.

[Question: Is McC's current stance on our non-torture definition indicative of his belief in retribution? If he was tortured (though by current definition, he was NOT tortured) it becomes necessary to inflict the same on others in a like situation?]
