But, Which "-ism' Is It?

We talked about the McCain campaign's Paris Hilton/Barack Obama/Britney Spears miscegenation sandwich ad last week. We were mostly all in agreement that the ad was not only tasteless, but racist (hell, even Kathy Hilton agrees with us). Now, we need to revisit McCain's other ad "The One":
