Sometimes a Tower is Just a Column
New York Times columnist Bob Herbert is seeing racist phallic symbols in John McCain’s campaign ads: Obamania Has Herbert Hallucinating. Beyond parody.
Herbert says the McCain “Celeb” ad shows two phallic pieces of architecture: the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the Washington Monument.
But he didn’t even get that right. Both of the clips in that McCain advertisement show the same building: the Victory Column in Berlin.
