I'm John McCain, and I approve this cross-burning

John McCain's "hot chick" ad deconstructed:

Your average Republican operative is so good at projection you could stick a halogen lamp up their ass and use them in place of the Zeiss at the Hayden Planetarium.

The Raw Story | Observers ask: What's with all the white women in anti-Obama ads?
The handful of white women fawning over Barack Obama in John McCain's latest attack ad hardly seems an accident, nor does the Republican's decision to include the line, "Hot chicks dig Obama."

Some observers say the Web video is a not-so-subtle attempt by McCain to play on white voters' racial fears, comparing the attack to the infamous "call me" spot attacking African American Democrat Harold Ford in his unsuccessful Senate run two years ago.

Predictably, conservatives are rushing to McCain's defense, saying that the accusations of racism coming from some on the left are far worse than the underhanded racism McCain is accused of deploying.
