“Barack Obama has played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck," said Rick Davis, the campaign manager for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in a statement issued just now. "It’s divisive, negative, shameful and wrong.” This response came in response to comments made by Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois — mentioned in my post from last night  — seeming to imply in Rolla, Missouri, and then flatly declaring in Union, Missouri, that McCain is running a campaign in which McCain is pointing out that Obama has "got a funny name and he doesn’t look like all the presidents on the dollar bills," meaning of course that Obama is African-American. – jpt
