Sad, and sad timing. Obama's ailing grandmother died.
Obama addressed this tonight in Charlotte:
The morons at the Free Republic question the timing, some suggesting that she died last week, and the news was released now so that Obama could get the last minute "sympathy vote". Pretty ugly, huh?
Well, ugly is as ugly does. Incidentially, the RNC, through the California Republican Party, filed an FEC complaint against Obama complaining that Obama visited his ailing Grandma. The complaint was filed just hours before she died. Kind of dickish, in retrospect.
