Woman: I gotta ask you a question. I do not…um…believe in…I can't trust Obama.
McCain: I gotcha—
Woman: —I have read about him and he's not…he's not…he's a…um He's an Arab. He's not...
McCain: No ma'am. No ma'am.
You see how easy that was? All McCain had to do was give a simple denial and she's right there able to keep up. McCain tells her it's not true and she does the quick u-turn away from ignorance.
Sure, she's probably still pretty confused on a whole bunch of facts. But she doesn't even try to hold on to this one simple claim. Now I'm guessing someone else she trusts will repeat the lie to her. And she may shriek out McCain's an Ay-rab too!
But McCain will rest easy knowing that the work he started will continue with or without him.
Push against it.
