John McCain is the second coming of the Ku Klux Klan according to Karen Tumulty, Time Magazine’s political correspondent.
Why? Because John McCain has put out an ad showing Barack Obama’s ties to Franklin Raines of Fannie Mae.
Raines is black. Obama is black. Therefore John McCain is a dirty racist.
Now, she says that if McCain wasn’t a racist, he would have done an ad going after Obama for his more substantial ties to Jim Johnson, a white guy.
She never bothered to check her facts. McCain has put out an ad connecting Obama to Johnson.
Tumulty is still unpersuaded and has not, as of now, updated her post.
*You can email her at [email protected] or call her at 202-861-4055 and ask her to set the record straight.*
[Ed. note: I said Harold and not Franklin Raines. I’ve updated the post to correct. Sorry.]
