We've Got A Long Way To Go

This is the scariest thing I've seen today:

It's not that scary. It sounds like my aunt and uncle. Those same people will be loving him if he had an (R) next to his name.

Politics is more about branding nowadays it is about substance. I could see people wanting to hurt Bush just as much as they would want to hurt Obama.

I agree with Jack. The video is not that scary...once one is in hearing (or reading distance)of a hate-spewing relative. My aunt recently forwarded the whole family some terrible emails about Obama that were filled with lies and unforgivable racist statements. I wonder if these ignorant, racists would love a Black candidate if s/he has an (R) next to her/his name? According to many, they have issue with his religion and his lack of patriotism. Would the (R) prove his devout christianity and unquestioning love of the U.S. (I mean the REAL U.S., of course)? I'm so sick of the hate that is dripping all over this election...and it goes way beyond branding, PR, or politics as usual.
