Wow. I used to think Claire McCaskill was a good surrogate for Barack Obama. That was before she accused everyone who isn't supporting her candidate of racism.

She was asked on MSNBC this morning  who "they" are when Barack Obama said his lines about "they are going to make you afraid of me" because he doesn't look like the other presidents on the dollar bill.

Mika asked McCaskill  "Who are they?"

McCaskill answered, " Well, I think they is everyone out there who wants to make sure that Barack Obama doesn't become president."

This is nasty. She's saying "everyone" who doesn't support Obama should be suspected of making racist attacks against Obama.
