-- by Dave Johnson

Why is the McCain campaign running an ad in which the word "hang" appears with a picture of Obama?

Is it just a mistake? Maybe, but the McCain campaign has a track record of running very carefully prepared ads that include code words designed to trigger a particular reaction from targeted segments of the Republican base. Recently the McCain campaign ran an ad about Obama being "The One" -- meaning the antichrist. The McCain campaign denied it but the authors of the "Left Behind" series understand this to be the meaning of the ad.

So what segment of the Republican base is the McCain campaign reaching out to with this ad? And what exactly are they hoping to trigger?

P.S. read this about that Denver assassination plot I linked to in the previous paragraph.
