Publicly Supporting McCain Is Like Lighting a Stink Bomb


Recommended Posts

If you want to oppose Obama, some expect you to do so very quietly:

(From The Article)

The sign went up Sunday evening, bold black letters against the stark white background of the marquee at the Colony South Hotel & Conference Center in Clinton: "Country First. McCain/Palin."

By daybreak, pandemonium had broken loose all across heavily Democratic Prince George's County [Maryland]. Many local supporters of Democrat Barack Obama, jolted by the message as they headed down Branch Avenue on their Monday morning commutes, grabbed cellphones and BlackBerrys to notify friends. Operators of neighborhood e-mail group lists cried foul to their memberships. The NAACP logged calls. Community leaders demanded boycotts of the hotel…

Sputters "community activist" Arthur Turner:

People I have talked to look at the sign as a slap in the face. They feel it was blatant disrespect.

University of Maryland professor Ron Walters concurs, fuming that expressing support for McCain in "an area that is strongly African American was like putting a stink bomb in the middle of the living room."

By that logic, expressing support for Obama is like putting a stink bomb in the living room of America as a whole. After all, the USA is 82% Caucasian; Prince George's County is only 66% black. Ridiculous.
