I may be reading too much into this

(CNN) — Presidential candidate John McCain denied Wednesday that race will determine the outcome of next week's election pitting him against Barack Obama, who hopes to become the country's first black president.

"Look, there's racism in America — we all know that," the Republican hopeful told CNN's "Larry King Live" in a taped interview set to air Wednesday evening.

"But I am totally convinced that 99 and forty-four-one-hundredths percent of Americans are going to make the decision based on who is best to lead this country," he continued.

Isn't that how pure Ivory soap is? Pure white Ivory soap.
Just seems like an unfortunate choice there, John Boy.

Yeah, the Repugs have been stoking race fears most despicably. The question is, what effect it will have on the final tally. I couldn't hazard a guess.

Not when it comes to this country and its history of racism.

LOL! How did you remember that Dr. Magoo? The power of advertising!

Regarding race and the race, I think there will be a solid group of racists who will never vote for anything other than pure white (i.e. no Asian/African/Jewish/Middle Eastern/non-Aryan American).

I also think there will be a small group that votes FOR Obama because of his race alone.

But that 99.44% number must only refer to the Obama supporters who simply made the right choice because it's the right choice.

I thought that was an awfully specific number, for coming off the top of his head.
