October 13, 2008 In stunning move, McCain vows to whip a black man Pandering to the south? At the start of what many see as a crucial week for John McCain, the republican made a stunning move and promised that this coming wednesday he will whip a black man. "After I whip his you-know-what, we're going to be going out 24/7," McCain said, referring to Barack Obama, an African-American candidate. McCain decided not to spell out what part of Obama's body he would whip (his back and hind-thighs), since so many Americans have seen the television mini-series Roots and know how this kind of thing usually works. The whipping will take place at this Wednesday's debate, according to McCain, though he did not specify how many lashes, nor did he offer any of the new economic proposals which earlier in the weekend he had said would be forthcoming. Instead, the McCain camp decided to focus on the "promise to whip a black man in front of television cameras" strategy. How this will play out we can only wait and see.
