I don't know, but apparently McCain's people think it would take the descendants of great Americans like Thomas Jefferson. Specifically, descendants with serious issues with black people.
A key organizer of John McCain's meeting Saturday with former supporters of Hillary Clinton is best known for her role in another bitter American fight: The effort by some white descendants of Thomas Jefferson to keep his possible African-American descendants out of family gatherings….
Who is this Paulie Abeles, engaged by the McCain campaign to be a pied piper of angry Clintonistas?
The wife of a Thomas Jefferson family association official said Friday that she masqueraded as a 67-year-old black woman on an Internet chat room in a bid to keep descendants of a reputed Jefferson mistress out of this weekend's family reunion.
"It might have been somewhat unethical," said Paulie Abeles of Washington, D.C., who participated for eight months in the Yahoo! message board created for relatives of Jefferson slave Sally Hemings.
"It might have been childish, but I really think I was working in the best interest of the majority of the family members to make the reunion a calm and civilized gathering," she said.
God knows we want to be calm and civilized. That's why McCain picked her; her work on keeping the Hemings descendents out shows that she's got the skills to convince the Clintonistas that the Obamas, what with their videotaped whitey-spouting and baby-mamaing and terrorist fist bumping will just make the nation a less civilized place. They call it the White House for a reason, you know, and if we want to keep it as proper as a Jefferson reunion it's going to take some politicking. Fortunately, folks like Abeles have got plenty of feral anger to manipulate.
By the way, this comes in the same week that the McCain campaign got stung for having rape humorist Clayton Williams as a fundraiser-sponsor. The McCain campaign is sticking with the story that it was not aware of Williams' infamous remarks. Now, McCain might be able to pull off a "those comments were 18 years ago and he apologized" defense. But saying his campaign didn't know? Between Williams and now Paulie Abeles — Negro Detective, exactly what kind of vetting procedure are they running over there?
Do I need to send them the "Google, Motherfucker — do you use it?" picture?
