I know, Ari posted on a related topic, Scott posted on a related topic, but still, the campaign keeps hitting these lows. Nico Pitney delicately says “Former Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating, a McCain campaign co-chairman, edged up to an explicitly racial attack on Barack Obama on Thursday, describing the Illinois Senator as a “guy of the street” before raising his youthful drug use.” It sounded like this:

Just he ought to admit, “you know, I’ve got to be honest with you. I was a guy of the street. I was way to the left. I used cocaine. I voted liberally, but I’m back at the center.”

“A guy of the street”? I guess if I had been a guy of the street I would know cocaine is a gateway drug to voting liberally.
