    In both the West Virginia and Kentucky Democrat primaries it was revealed that in 1/5 of the votes cast race played a role. Keep in mind that these were Democrat primaries where the most liberal people in the states voted. Far be it from me to give advice to Barrack Hussein Obama, but Kentucky and West Virginia are states Obama needs. He’s also having trouble in all states with older people who were born while Jim Crow laws were still in effect.

    I have already implored Obama to distance himself from the hate speech of Reverend Wright and Martin Luther King, but at this point I don’t think that is enough. Obama must capture the racist vote if he is to win the presidency. It won’t be easy for a black man to emerge as the choice of racist America, but anybody who has seen the hilarious Cleavon Little in Blazing Saddles knows it isn’t impossible.

    In order to win over racists, Obama must come up with an issue they will get behind no matter who is pushing it. Obama must come out for repealing the 1964 Civil Rights Act. This law which created the EEOC and outlawed segregation in this country has long been a bone of contention among racists. It took a Southern in Lyndon Johnson to get it passed. It would take an African-American to get it repealed. McCain who was a staunch opponent of the Martin Luther King holiday would be unable to take a similiar position over fear of losing the moderates that he needs to win.

    Now don’t get me wrong. The KKK has already endorsed McCain. Obama is never going to get racists to embrace him as one of their own. However, a grudging respect and their votes would probably be worth a lot more to Obama at this time. Old habits die hard, but by playing ball Obama can change a lot of minds among those people like the voters in Kentucky and West Virginia who think they could never vote for a black man.

    "God didn’t call America to engage in a senseless, unjust war. . . .
    And we are criminals in that war. We’ve committed more war crimes
    almost than any nation in the world, and I’m going to continue to say
    it. And we won’t stop it because of our pride and our arrogance as a
    nation. But God has a way of even putting nations in their place…And
    if you don’t stop your reckless course, I’ll rise up and break the
    backbone of your power.”

    Sounds like hate speech to me.
