Hi, We're (not) Racist. We Swear.


Check out this new anti-health care ad campaign (h/t Andrew Sullivan). Keep in mind that no ever said that opposition to Health Care Reform was rooted in racism.

Of course, we can't say the same about opposition to President Obama in general. Even a slug understands that much of the hate being aimed at him (though not all) -- directed in many cases by Fox "news" and their band of misfit extremist hosts -- is most rooted in racism. It's just being labeled everything from Socialism to Fascism & everything in between by Glenn Beck & Rush Limbaugh.

Anyway, watch out this absurd ad. Don't you just love race-baiting, straw-man arguments? Don't you like the added touch of African Americans being trotted out like Log Cabin Republicans are when the GOP tries to claim their not homophobic?

Rachel Maddow covered the ad last night.
