Support Obama or You're a Racist

If poor blameless Obama loses in November, it's all those low-information, inbred racist Hillary supporters that will have cost him the race.

That's right; it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Obama has thugs for pals, an oversized ego, the flimsiest of resume, no moral authority, a racist for a preacher and a myriad of other deficiencies such as his meaningless blather about hope and change without any specificity attached to his words; nope, it's not Obama's fault if he loses.

You see, only "59 percent of Clinton’s white Democratic supporters wan[t] Obama to be president." And that can only mean one thing. Racism. Why, imagine the sheer audacious impudence of them not to drink the Obama kool aid.

But don't just take the media's word for it. Here's a little scientific evidence designed to really convince you.
To detect unreported racial biases, the study, among other metrics, sat those interviewed in front of monitors, using black and white faces to “measure implicit racial attitudes, or prejudices that are so deeply rooted that people may not realize they have them.” The survey then used statistical modeling to estimate how representative those interviewed were of the electorate overall.
Hmmm, not convinced yet?? Don't feel bad; you're not alone and you're not insane. On the other side of the ledger, here is what one commentator from an earlier WaPo column about "racial prejudice" had to say on the subject that just might make more sense.
This man, Barack Obama, who has used the most corrupt variety of politics in an inordinately cynical and perverse manner throughout his own career to undeservedly leap-frog his way ahead, is now set to bring the greatest disappointment of a generation.

Not because he is black.

Because he should never have run in the first place.

He is far too inexperienced to be the top of the ticket.
And here's another point to consider from the same column:
If Obama loses, and it's a real possibility given his tissue thin resume, then, Mr. Kennedy, you'll understand the pain and frustration felt by the 18 million people who invested THEIR hopes and dreams in Hillary Clinton's historic candidacy.
And another one:
"Sellout" more appropriately describes the politics of Barack Obama, who is changing, refining, re-defining, nuancing one policy position after another in his quest for the presidency. A case of rather forsaking integrity to win the election.

While I understand your anger, I take issue with your logic. No one, except the most extreme observers, are saying that voting for McCain is equivalent to racism against Obama. Most sane people will concede that many people who vote for McCain will do so for legitimate reasons. However, there will also be, and polling supports this, a considerable number of people who can't bring themselves to vote for Obama, even though they agree with him on policy.
