Echoes of George Wallace

Posted By on Sat, Oct 11, 2008 at 5:13 PM

Civil rights legend John Lewis raises George Wallace's ghost in decrying McCain campaign rhetoric and crowd reactions. Judging by cable TV today, this has given the McCain camp an opportunity to appear  aggrieved and to prompt the Obama camp to apologize for overheated rhetoric. Much as I agree that Palin, particularly, is stirring the darkest sorts of thoughts in her dead-end supporters with beyond the pale remarks -- and ugly as some of McCainiacs have been -- I do think this is something the Obama campaign best run above. The reporting and the participants' own words will get the job done on this. They need not emphasize it.
