Paranoids: We're After You, Just Like Campbell's

Clearly, as I mentioned in Mathias' combox, the Campbell Soup labels are racist.

The black ink is a minority of the color-scheme, and is totally dominated by the white areas.

How else can one possibly react after reading this tripe?

Now, from the hapless but increasingly venomous McCain campaign, comes the slimy Britney Spears and Paris Hilton ad. The two highly sexualized women (both notorious for displaying themselves to the paparazzi while not wearing underwear) are shown briefly and incongruously at the beginning of a commercial critical of Mr. Obama.

The Republican National Committee targeted Harold Ford with a similarly disgusting ad in 2006 when Mr. Ford, then a congressman, was running a strong race for a U.S. Senate seat in Tennessee. The ad, which the committee described as a parody, showed a scantily clad woman whispering, “Harold, call me.”

(Mathias quoting Bob Herbert)

IIRC, Mr. Ford was...ahhhh...attending an event where scantily-clad women were featured attractions--so the ad wasn't really "a parody."

I tell you, this race-baiting of the Obama gang is the biggest gift McCain has gotten (to date) from them.

Keep it up, folks.

Perhaps if McCain had also included Oprah? There is a woman whose media hold I cannot fathom.

But then, most talk show hosts fall in that same category.

There's a blogger who thinks that Oprah is a Theosophist-lite.
