What has bothered me about last week’s election coverage is the way that so many people on the left and the right have no qualm with equating Arab and Muslim with terrorist.

McCain has been getting props for setting her straight (which on a certain level he did). BUt he didn’t do it fully. What if he was an Arab? What the heck has that got to do with anything? McCain’s response bothers me because it still left me with a bitter taste in my mouth: No Obama is not an Arab, he’s a descent family man citizen….”
Um, so Arabs can’t be descent family men and citizens? No one picked up on that, except (funnily enough) Joe Scarborough— which makes my love-hate relationship with his off-beat conservative self all the more intense ;-0
America can do better than this.
