accused Senator Barack Obama on Thursday of playing “the race card,” citing his earlier remarks that about Republicans trying to scare voters with Obama’s unorthodox image and ideas.

It all started last Wensday when Senator Obama defended himself on a speech in Springfield, Mo. (NO, the Simpsons were NOT there).

“Yo man, nobody really doesn’t thinks that Bush or McCain has a real answer for the challenges we bros face, so yo, what them whities mofos are going to try to do is make you scared shitless of me,” Mr. Obama said to the ‘hood as he made a V sign.  “You know, shit like he isn’t no American patriotic. He got a funny name. You know, he don’t look like all those other whities  on those dollar bucks, you know. Yo, he’s risky. That’s essentially da argument them white mofos are making, yo.”

It was in response to this comments that McCain issued the race card statement. “I’m disappointed that Senator Obama would use the grammar that he’s using, you heaaaar?” McCain told reporters in a KKK anonymus meeting in Racine, Wis. The Arizona senator took off his white hood and stated “Barack Obama has played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck. It’s divisive, negative, shameful and wrong… like blacks.”

In turn, Obama campaign manager Snoop Dogg said, “We wasn’t suggesting in no way that the man was using race as an issue, bros, but that white trash McCain is using the same ol’ low-road politics that voters ain’t diggin’ to distract voters from da real issues in da campaign, yo.”
