Good-bye Manny and is McCain actually the racist?

It was a terrific run – Manny Ramirez in Boston.  But all good things must come to an end.  Manny is a Dodger now wearing the blue of my childhood heros – Koufax, Drysdale, Podres, Wills etc.   Live long and prosper, Manny.  All you Dodger fans, have fun with him.

Mcain is acusing Obama of playing the race card:  I think it is actually the other way around. I’m thinking back to Doug Wilder’s election to Governor in Virginia when the polls indicated he would win by a comfortable margin and the election turning out to be very close, I get anxious about the election.  Is there still enough residual racism that McCain will be able to play to it?  Is this the reason the polls are so close?  Is the talk about Obama’s arrogance really a code for “he’s an uppity black man.?  Things to think about.
