An AP article argues that Palin's using racist attacks against Obama. There are two elements to the claim. First, attacking Obama's Ayers association is racist because terrorists "are envisioned as dark-skinned radical Muslims", even though the particular terrorist, Ayers, is white. Second, when Palin claims Obama doesn't "see America like you and I see America", she paints him as the other, ie black and scary.
What bullshit. These aren't coded race attacks, they're "unpatriotic liberal" attacks, no different from previous years.
TPM, of course, approvingly links, with the title "If the sheet fits." Attacking an opponent's unsavory personal connections is not the moral equivalent of lynching.
