If you don't vote for Obama, you're a racist

Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit:


But how well is it working? Not everyone's buying it:

Make no mistake: the man who admits he looks like Urkel is sounding about as post-racial as the Rev. Al Sharpton. Or about as post-racial as someone who spent the last 20 years under the spiritual tutelage of the race-baiting Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Fr. Michael Pfleger. Someone with that background ought to have some humility when it comes to dealing the race card, but he has chosen it as his opening gambit.

Humility isn't his strong suit.

UPDATE: Juliette Ochieng comments:

This is just pathetic . . . . Most people couldn't care less about your name and your color, Senator Obama. They fear being led by you because you have no substantive legislative record, you're a chronic liar and, after explicitly stating that you choose your friends carefully, you have repeatedly and systematically made friends with people who hate this country.

You would "bridge the divide," Senator, by burning that bridge.

Barack as the Messiah

I will not be voting for Barack Obama in this year's Presidential election; and in fact, the more I see and think of him, the less he impresses me. But in saying that, I am apparently going against the grain of public opinion. Meanwhile, Jonah Goldberg, who is always good, was at his best in this article about the religious overtones of Obamamania. I post it here because (1) it reflects my own views quite accurately, and (2) it does so in an amusing way.
