THE NEW YORK TIMES says that the Jeremiah Wright ad in North Carolina is “race-baiting.” But Ann Althouse disagrees:

But look at the ad! It’s about left-wing politics and anti-Americanism. . . . Is it racism simply because Jeremiah Wright and Obama are black? It would make more sense to accuse the NYT of racism for thinking that that anything that black people say or do is about their race.

Watch it for yourself. Note that the impact of these denunciations is to discredit those who reflexively play the race card on Obama’s behalf, and to ensure wide circulation of the ad beyond North Carolina.
