The "Educated Voter"

Poor James T. Harris has been getting savaged for supporting John McCain. In a CNN interview he was asked why he, an African-American man, supports a white candidate when an African-American candidate is our there. James says it's because of the conservative ideas McCain stands for. But can Barack supporters say the same thing?

While I normally abhore what Howard Stern does, this bit is abolutely brilliant. It makes me want to try it at school. Check it out (don't worry, it's kid-safe).

Of course, every Barack supporter isn't like this, but just the fact that they could find some supporters that think this way is sad. And I'm sure that this type of prejudice isn't limited to Barack supporters. Does the phrase judging someone by the content of their character not by the color of their skin ring any bells? People should vote for the candidate of their choice based on what the candidates stand for, not the color of their skin. Sigh...
