"A reverse Willie Horton"

Harsanyi comments on John McCain's commercial comparing Barrack Obama to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. It is a stupid commercial.

He also comments on the predictable response to it. Some of the usual suspects cried "racism."

Harsanyi points out that "It's true; Obama is black. And the person who keeps mentioning that Barack Obama is black most often is Barack Obama."

  1. The purpose of the commercial is to point out the fact that Obama has never really accomplished anything that is significant, but has wide appeal to certain segments of the population.. This is similar to the careers of Paris Hilton and Britney Spears.
