Haven't had much on the election in here. But this one thing has been bugging me.
Newsweek (and others, but this excerpt is from Newsweek) describes a recent McCain rally:
At a town-hall event Friday in Minnesota, McCain took the microphone from a woman who said Obama is an Arab. McCain said, "No, ma'am," and he called Obama "a decent, family man."
I understand that McCain is trying to temper the comments of his supporters, but rather than simply denying that Obama is an Arab he makes the argument that he's a decent family man, as if that's the opposite of being Arab. Arabs certainly can be decent family men!
