It's called code, and Republicans are fluent.
I always get nervous when somebody says code words because what they are arguing is that the words the candidates are saying do not mean what they mean, which opens up everything to crazy interpretation. Most of Parker's points though are not precisely code words.
"Because here you voted for the war and now you oppose the war." Did anybody hear flip-flop?
I wouldn't argue that is a code word for flip-flop, but an accusation of flip-floping without the brevity.
Neither McCain nor Palin would dare mention Obama's middle name, Hussein, but they can play up Obama's past associations and let others connect the dots. Terrorist. Muslim. Dangerous. Other.
And I completely disagree with this one. Ayers is a domestic terrorist, and happens to be a white guy. Anybody who knows anything about him, even to the point of a half-remembered photograph of the man is not going to think MUSLIM.
Parker's logic requires the assumption that the American people are stupid. Maybe they are and link William Ayers to Muslim terrorists. Nevertheless, code word arguments are dangerous.
