Shocker: Obama Surrogates Still Shamelessly Playing the Race Card

No surprise coming from these two Congressmen from New York, where playing the race card is a time-honored tradition. This feeds into the typical leftist paranoia where they take innocuous statements from stump speeches, twists them to feed their own racial attitudes, and declare their opponents racist. It's intended to silence their opponents, but I suspect Sarah Palin isn't about to kowtow to these morons.
As the McCain campaign ratchets up the intensity of its attacks on Barack Obama, some black elected officials are calling the tactics desperate, unseemly and racist.

“They are trying to throw out these codes,” said Representative Gregory Meeks, a Democrat from New York.

“He’s ‘not one of us?’” Mr. Meeks said, referring to a comment Sarah Palin made at a campaign rally on Oct. 6 in Florida. “That’s racial. That’s fear. They know they can’t win on the issues, so the last resort they have is race and fear.”

“Racism is alive and well in this country, and McCain and Palin are trying to appeal to that and it’s unfortunate,” said Representative Ed Towns, also from New York.
Sure, racism is alive and well in this country, and flourishing in the Democrat Party.

You know, I could see if Palin used a word such a monkey in her speeches, but unfortunately, that's what dopey sportswriters are calling her.
