Desperation: Stinky Cologne

Jonathan Martin reports that “Hussein” has been invoked in reference to Obama by yet another local pol warming up the crowd, despite the reference being ruled “inappropriate” by the McCain campaign.

Bill Platt, GOP chair of Lehigh County, just warmed up the crowd and referred to Obama as “Barack Hussein Obama twice.”

Of course, the McCain campaign doesn’t really want to put the kibosh on this sort of behavior, but the sad thing is that I just don’t think it’s going to work, and the fact that the GOP has had to escalate to such volume is proof. Swing voters in this election literally can’t afford to make a purely cultural decision.
