In her "No Bias, No Bull" segment Wednesday night, Campbell Brown pleaded with the McCain campaign to stop what she referred to as "race baiting."

"It is getting very, very ugly," Brown said. "Tonight, we are cutting through the bull on the issue of race and this campaign."

Brown blasted McCain surrogates for injecting race Obama's race into the campaign narrative by invoking his middle name or referring to him as a terrorist, and she called on McCain to deliver a "much stronger denunciation than a campaign-generated paper statement":

Look, everybody, we all know that we are in unchartered territory here. Never before has there been an African-American presidential nominee. So without question, race is going to be part of the conversation. Race baiting doesn't have to be. And yet, it is happening in this campaign.


Twice this week, surrogates for Senator McCain had made a point of calling Senator Obama "Barack Hussein Obama." The implication here is clear. It's foreign sounding. It's Muslim sounding. It's un-American sounding. It's dangerous sounding.


What it is, is race baiting. And that is what is dangerous. Inciting crowds, encouraging their angry outbursts. McCain supporters shouting "treason" and "terrorist" about Obama at these rallies that is dangerous.


Earlier in the campaign, McCain denounced this stuff. He strongly denounced it. And today, it requires a stronger response, a much stronger denunciation than a campaign-generated paper statement.

If Obama is a man of character he can endure this. If Obama can't then he will fall by the wayside.........

But, both McCain & Obama have flaws from their hair line to their toes. If anyone needs defending it is the poor Americans & epecially the Native Americans!!!!!!!!!

Seemingly we know all too much of the good, bad & ugly of blacks. How much if any do we know of Native Americans??????

I hope to see a Native American as V.P. or President before I die.......

McCain's campaign is engaging in a futile attempt to Stir up a riot so they can use martial law and cancel the election.

Their behavior (McCain/Palin and their "mad dog" rabid crowds yelling "hate speech" and calling for murder) are clearly inciting to riot, which is CRIMINAL. But they are not ordinary folks, so they are not arrested.

I think the only explanation for McCain's change in personality is that his melanoma has begun to affect his brain. For Palin, she was trained in GOPAC with Newt Gingrich, so she is his puppet. He has certainly not taken the high road.

At what point do people realize how crazy things are? Republicans are whipped into a frenzy.

John McCain showed respectable constraint. I wonder how calculated it was. I wonder if his campaign staff are discussing the long term impact of running a campaign that goes this far in vilifying non-Republicans?

Republicans have convinced themselves that they are under siege. The language they're using is as strong as I've ever heard, and it isn't about the promotion of American values, it is about the defense of the American way of life from an internal enemy. Whether or not it is explicit in these campaign speeches, the message being taken away by Republicans is that those of us who aren't Republicans are fighting a cultural war against white heterosexuals, Christians, and Jews, and that we are collaborating to make ourselves rich by creating economic turmoil.

The videos from Ohio and Pennsylvania are not of individuals gathering around a common idea, they are a mob gathering around a common enemy. And, they're lashing out at their neighbors. Not objects. Not property. At people. There's a difference between schadenfreude and sadism.

Republicans aren't wishing their enemies trivial misfortune, they're wishing them dead.

How does this not call for alarm?

Sacramento GOP Web Site Calls For Senator Obama To Be Tortured

* The official website of a California county's Republican Party called for Obama to be tortured. Once again, "occasional nuts" run the Republican Party.
