Is McCain ignorant or racist? Or both?
John McCain's response to a volunteer's blunder leaves no doubt about his feelings toward Arabs.

I was forwarded a clip of John McCain’s rally in Lakeville on October 10, and was told to listen carefully to the stuttering volunteer with the microphone. So I did. Here’s what she said: “Obama…he’s uh…uh…he’s an Arab!…” Then John McCain stepped in, shook his head and said:
“No ma’am, no ma’am. He’s a decent, family man, citizen, that I happen to have disagreements with.” Then the crowd booed.
I didn’t expect the volunteer to know any better, but I was surprised by McCain’s response. He refutes the woman’s claim by insisting that Obama is a ‘good’ guy, but he doesn’t explain why Obama isn’t Arab. Surely McCain knows that an Arab can be good, right?
Take a look at the clip (Youtube.com), and let us know what you think.
