Blackazoid: The Blackening

By Jesse Taylor

The shape of things to come

By Amanda Marcotte

No time for the Friday Random Ten today, but I wanted to draw everyone’s attention to this article about the whisper campaigns against Barack Obama that exploit Americans’ xenophobia and other forms of ignorance. More than any other factor, these whisper campaigns are going to be damaging to Obama’s chances.…

By pams

The Obama campaign has tapped North Carolina as one of the states to air this ad; it’s been Red at the presidential level, but NC’s in play this time around. It will also run in Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North…
