Hastings pulls race card
More sleaze and race-baiting from the Democrats, this time from Florida Rep. Alcee Hastings.
From ABC: “If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention,” said Hastings. “Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through.”
Most shocking, however, is that when contacted, the Obama campaign had no response to this bilge.
But what if a Republican representative had said this about Obama: “Anybody who’s black and playing basketball don’t care too much about what they do with Christians and whites”?
Would the McCain campaign be expected to repudiate it? And what would happen if it didn’t?
