"Good video on Obama and Wright."
Soren Dayton, a junior staffer with Republican John McCain's campaign, circulating a racially charged YouTube video that mashes together the words of Democrat Barack Obama, the controversial pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright, a photograph of the 1968 Olympics black power salute and a Public Enemy song, among other things. McCain fired Dayton, though critics noted the dismissal came just a week after the McCain campaign "mistakenly" sent reporters a Wall Street Journal op-ed suggesting that Obama's relationship with Wright showed his radical agenda.
