race & gender

After those NC numbers going so high unexpectedly, I really can’t help being worried about that hidden race card, that people are just going to switch to McCain at the last minute for some last minute rationalized reason that is really covering up for subconscious racism, a fear of having a black man in the white house. Palin is a fine peg to hang that on – she’s a woman, she’s feisty, that’s good enough – but if they can’t make that work, there’s always security / safety (I’m not saying people are looking for excuses consciously – just uncomfortable enough with Obama to be feeling around for something to grab onto from McCain)
