"You May Be a Racist"

The issue of Obama's calculated and passive-aggressive pattern of smearing anyone who disagrees with him as a racist is dying down a bit, but there's still time for last licks.

Did he miss this one? If you defend yourself vigorously against Obama's smearing of you as racist... you may be a racist.

This is no small potatoes. Obama seeks to define any criticism of himself or his covert leftist agenda as either a "distraction" from the "real issues" or "racism." (He's debuting a third theory of Illegitimate Questioning, now branding any reporter who does his job and asks him difficult questions a McCain surrogate. The press pro-McCain and anti-Obama? If he can sell that one, I admit it: He really is the Messiah.)

Hillary allowed Obama to so define each and every criticism of Obama as either irrelevant, or the "old style of politics," or actually racist, and she got rolled.

McCain isn't allowing that, and can't allow that. Although Obama will continue crying foul, no American can permit Obama to define questioning a contender for the office of President of the United States of America as somehow out-of-bounds, impolite, mean-spirited or animated by racial hatred.

Not just McCain or Republicans, mind you. Liberals themselves should be outraged by this blatant attempt to define opposition to Obama as fundamentally un-American. I know that many Hillary supporters are still angry that the MSM permitted Obama to essentially question the patriotism of anyone who questioned Obama; one would think, after seven years of screaming about Bush supposedly shutting down debate by questioning the motives of anyone opposed to him, even Obama supporters would be viscerally opposed to the tactic.

But, of course, like the new Hollywood blacklist against conservatives, dedicated leftists aren't really upset by the tactic itself, just that they didn't think of it first and didn't get to make use of it. And now that they can use it, well, darnit, they're going to use it unapologetically.

Sometimes "Never Again" just means "Not Until It's Our Turn."
