John McCain pretty much stopped the racism accusations – one of his biggest credit from me.

But it’s too juicy a bone to let go in the zeal to shove Obama down our throats.

Sanford University polled, and AP read that

Among white Democrats, Clinton supporters were nearly twice as likely as Obama backers to say at least one negative adjective described blacks well, a finding that suggests many of her supporters in the primaries — particularly whites with high school education or less — were motivated in part by racial attitudes.

What do you know? Every time we get profiled, McCain gets another vote. From someone actually offended by this. so keep it up!

Of course,  the purpose of doing this is two fold:

guilt people into vote for Obama if they don’t want to be called racist and

have a ready made explanation  for his loss

Story gets better from Faultline Usa:

Seems in their zeal to make the point, people and quotes are made up

The article fails to name the pollster who claimed to have called Cichon. When asked during my phone interview, Cichon denied speaking to any pollster on the phone.

What is she supposed to have said?

A pollster calling Sandra Cichon, a 60-year-old Democrat from Spring Hill, would hear her identify herself as an undecided voter. But is she really?

“I can’t imagine having a black president, and I think he’s inexperienced,” she told a reporter recently, eventually acknowledging she was leaning unenthusiastically toward McCain. “I don’t think we (Democrats) have a chance to be in the White House with Obama.”


Riverdaughter finds the burried lede in the AP article

Perhaps most noteworthy, the AP notes that the study itself found that “race is not the biggest factor driving Democrats and independents away from Obama.” It notes that “doubts about his competency loom even larger.”
