According to Kansas City Star
columnist Lewis Diuguid, John McCain and Sarah Palin should be ashamed of themselves for implying that Barack Obama is a socialist. He writes
, "McCain and Palin have simply reached back in history to use an old code word for black. It set whites apart from those deemed unAmerican and those who could not be trusted during the communism scare."
So, if "socialist" really is code for "black," then I guess Obama is only half
socialist. Would that be more appropriate?
Come on, Mr. Diuguid. You're a smart guy. Your readers deserve better than this. Get over yourself.
