Hot Air catches AP sanitizing Sebelius’s comments. The original version was

Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius accused Republicans on Tuesday of injecting race into the presidential campaign, arguing that they are using “code language” to convince Midwesterners that Democrat Barack Obama is different from them.

“Have any of you noticed that Barack Obama is part African-American?” Sebelius asked with sarcasm. “(Republicans) are not going to go lightly into the darkness.”

Sebelius was responding to a question from the audience at the Iowa City Public Library about the tenacity of Democrats and whether they would fight for victory as hard as Republicans in the closing weeks of the election.

Now the text reads:

“I think that the notion that, ‘By the way, have any of you noticed that Barack Obama is part African American?’ I think that is for a number of people difficult,” Sebelius said. “I think we need to talk about the fact that that is a real issue.”

The good news is, the media has realized that racism accusations are no longer a good thing for Obama.

Thank you John McCain for getting that one settled!

The bad news – I am old enough to remember when the media used to purge things for W – you know that guy still in the White House.

Now, the same people who brought us W and the war in Iraq are working just as hard to bring us Obama.

I wonder why that is?
