Uppity and disrespectful

The McCain campaign ads just keep getting worse and worse. I'm just waiting for the equivalent of the infamous "Willie Horton" ad to hit the air.
The lastest ad comes very close in my opinion.
I call it the "Uppity Black Man Disrespects a White Woman" ad.
It is a complete crock. Obama has never said anything remotely disrespectful of Palin. What this ad is clearly trying to do is appeal to the deeply embedded racial animosities of the electorate by raising the specter of an "uppity" black man trying to rise above his place who commits what was once considered a lynching offense in the South - "disrespecting" a white woman.
This is truly sickening. John McCain has forfeited any and all sense of decency in this race and is no longer morally fit to be president of the United States.
