McCain Playing For Racist Fears With Socialism Label

I had not thought of this angle, and I’m not sure I agree with it, at least not fully.  But, food for thought:

Perhaps more instructive are the parts pointing out that McCain was not all that far from Obama’s current tax policy not that long ago.  But now he is trying to make sure Grover Norquist likes him, and, playing to racism or not, trying to scare working/middle class voters by claims that Obama will raise their taxes (which he won’t).  For what its worth, I got a call from the McCain campaign a few hours ago playing on exactly that theme.  Who knows; maybe it’ll work.
