Ohio Democrats: You're "Racist" If You Don't Vote for Sen. Obama

How NOT to win friends and influence people.

Racism is a fundamental belief that people of different "races" are fundamentally different and that because of these differences they should be treated differently.

Therefore, anyone who votes for Obama because he is partially African is a racist. They believe that this somehow makes him fundamentally different and better qualified to be president.

A thinking person should reject the first premise - that the "races" are fundamentally different in any way that matters. Therefore, Mr. Obama is not more or less qualified to be president because his father was African.

That's their new jingle?

Alright then, color me a racist: just don't call me a democrat.

Even if I did vote for Mr. Obama, it would not be the first or second time that I voted for an African American. Then again, they were Conservatives. Too bad we cannot accuse White people who don't vote for Conservative African American of racism.

Yeah, I didn't hear that refrain here in Maryland in 2006 when Michael Steele was running for the Senate, or in PA or OH with regards to Swann and Blackwell for that matter. I guess whites can only be prejudiced against left-wing African-Americans.

Exactly right, Ohio Joe.

I don't remember them making this argument when Ken Blackwell was running for Governor.

I hope he told that to all the "racists" in Maryland that didn't vote for Michael Steele.
