Full story, with video links, is up on the homepage. Here's the short blog version.

-Obama tells reporters, three separate times while stumping in a single day the McCain campaign is telling voters Obama is "scary" and "doesn't look like other presidents." This was Obama's odd reaction to McCain's "Celeb" ad which compares Obama's celebrity to pop stars and hits Obama on leadership, taxes and energy.

-Lots of people, including myself, wonder if this sounds like Obama is playing the "race card"

-McCain campaign says heck yes he is! And McCain campaign manager Rick Davis emails out this statement: "Barack Obama has played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck. It's divisive, negative, shameful and wrong."
