Finding more racism

The latest example of finding something that isn't there is Marty Kaplan's scrutiny of Joe Lieberman's endorsement of McCain. Lieberman said:
In my opinion, the choice could not be more clear: between one candidate, John McCain, who's had experience, been tested in war and tried in peace, another candidate who has not. Between one candidate, John McCain, who has always put the country first, worked across party lines to get things done, and one candidate who has not.

What did Joe mean by this? To me we was contrasting the candidate who served (and sacrificed) in the US armed forces with the candidate who introduced himself to Germany as a "citizen of the World".

Not Kaplan. To him, this is code for "Obama is a muslim".
