McEwan: Christofascists are racist, too

You may remember Melissa McEwan as the gynocentric blogger who was forced to resign from the John Edwards campaign after her rants against "Christofascists" came to light. So, what's she up to, now that she's no longer working for Sen. Baby Daddy? Mass psychoanalysis:
[L]oitering below the ostensibly substantive critique is something more nefarious. . . .
Obama, dog whistles the ad, hitting old racists in the sweet spot, could f--- these white girls – it's practically a Democratic tradition … JFK, Clinton, heck even Carter lusted in his heart – and we don't want that, now, do we?
Let me ask you something, Melissa: If this ad is such a clear-cut subliminal appeal to right-wing Bilboism, how come only left-wingers claim to be able to see it? I mean, it's like a normal guy taking a Rorshach inkblot test administered by Professor Irwin Corey:
Doc: OK, what do you see?
Patient: Hmm. A butterfly, maybe.
Doc: No, it's your mother's vagina.
Patient: What?
Doc: A-ha! Oedipal-denial syndrome!
But lefties are so much smarter and more insightful than us normal people, they can tell us what we're supposed to see in an ad that has generated 1.4 million views at YouTube without inspiring a single lynch mob in Arkansas:

Beer goggles and cocktail napkins. Nudge, nudge.
