Racial Overtones In The Celeb Ad?

I have to confess, I don’t think the overtones in the Paris Hilton/Britney Spears ad from McCain was about race. I think some on my side of the aisle are reading too much into this – the McCain people just aren’t smart enough to be that subtle.

The reaction from Democrats brings to mind an abused wife who now thinks of many/most men as abusive, without any evidence saying that. Dems have rolled over so much for aggressive Dems that the left is very sensitive to it. Then again, I’m okay with a more aggressive reaction to the very passive way Dems handled these things in the past.

And no, not the Hitler thing either.
