That didn't take long - the race baiting has begun

And who better to do it than Frank Rich, in his
piece of trash article "The Grand Old White Party Confronts Obama". In a completely unsurprising screed from one of the leftiest of the left, Rich throws a plethora of racial insinuations about the GOP and John McCain. Some choice quotes:
What distinguished his posse from Mr. Obama’s throng was not just its age but its demographic monotony: all white and nearly all male. Such has been the inescapable Republican brand throughout this campaign, ever since David Letterman memorably pegged its lineup of presidential contenders last spring as “guys waiting to tee off at a restricted country club.”
For all the changes in Virginia and elsewhere, vestiges of the Southern strategy persist in some Republican quarters.
(which followed a couple of paragraphs about previous segregation and racism in the South - an obvious attempt to imply a parallel between then and now)
In the vast arena of the Internet (McCain) has been shrunk to Grumpy Old White Guy, the G.O.P. brand incarnate.
As some Republicans drift away in a McCain-Obama race, who fills the vacuum? Among the white guys flanking Mr. McCain at his victory celebration on Tuesday, revealingly enough, was the once-golden George Allen, the Virginia Republican who lost his Senate seat and presidential hopes in 2006 after being caught on YouTube calling a young Indian-American Democratic campaign worker “macaca.”
(An obvious attempt to link McCain to the "macaca" incident)
Not that this article is any surprise...the only surprise is that I was able to read the entire thing without throwing my laptop across the room. To maintain site decorum, I will refrain from typing what I really think about this sorry excuse for a journalist. I will just say that Rich is a slug, leaving a trail of slime wherever he slithers. This latest patch of goo is probably just the beginning.
