McCain Plays the Hail Mary Race Card

This is the mailer the McCain campaign is sending out in North Carolina. Did you know that it used to be easy to recognize patriotism, because it always came with a white hand?

The white hand has a long, sad history in North Carolina political history. Remember this ad? (Youtube video link)

Jesse Helms' infamous thirty second commercial showing a pair of white hands crumpling a job rejection letter as a narrator says:

"You needed that job, and you were the best qualified, but they had to give it to a minority, because of a racial quota. Is that really fair? Harvey Gantt says it is. Gantt supports Ted Kennedy's racial quota law that makes the color of your skin more important than your qualifications. Your vote on this issue next Tuesday. For racial quotas, Harvey Gantt. Against racial quotas, Jesse Helms."
