Memo to the media covering John McCain:

Mentioning the design of US currency as a marker that white people have a good gig in this country is really not a display of racism.

On the other hand, obsequiously traveling to Bob Jones University to reassure conservatives that you're on their side about things like miscegenation and interracial dating is definitely a display of racism.

Are we clear? Any questions?

Fine. Now let's stop wasting time and space on this Rovian race-bating and focus on some substantive issues, like the Iraq war, the economy, health care policy, the housing/credit bubble, energy policy, and wealth transfer from the middle class to the upper one-tenth, shall we?
