"That One" dismisses inpolite & rude comments from AZ Senator

I am penning this ahead of the one I was preparing;  as I just finished watching Presidential Debate II between US Senator Barack Obama, and US Senator John McCain.  To say I was angry is an understatement.  The Senator from Arizona dismissed his opponent with an off hand, over the shoulder, reference to "That One".  Why didn't he just call him "Boy" and complete the insult and dismissive tone in his voice.  That this former patriot, and hero could be so consumed in his blind ambition that he would display the kind of triumphalism last displayed in Northern Ireland against Irish Catholic Nationalist, as well as against native South African people of color by the Apartheid Regime is hateful.  What next, a crowd scene at his next townhall with white hooded and robed supporters.

To anyone who thinks that this type of dismissive and patronizing words and tone is not bigotry should ask one of the following:  a Northern Irish Catholic, a post Apartheid South African Black, a Jew from any number of communities, or a Hispanic American in the South West, or a Black American in many of our cities.  Hate speech is full of code words, shrugs, and innuendos; Senator John McCain and his running mate have got that form of speech and body language down pat!

Do not allow your better nature to be distracted by lies about Senator Obama and his beliefs.  He is a proud, patriotic, and religious American elected official who will lead our country out of its
 " dark ages " when he becomes our next President.
