MILWAUKEE - The hate mail started pouring in almost immediately after Newsradio 620 WTMJ radio host James T. Harris addressed Senator John McCain Thursday at a Republican rally in Waukesha.
"You know this is sort of a sampling of the emails that I've been receiving," Harris said," Hey Sambo, maybe Master McCain will let you shine his shoes since you did such a good job licking his boots."
During Thursday's rally, Harris urged Senator McCain to step up his attacks on Barack Obama's character. Harris said in the next presidential debate, "It's absolutely vital that you take it to Obama, that you hit him"where it hurts," because "we have all of these shady characters that have surrounded him."
Harris added, "I am begging you sir, I am begging you. Take it to him."
The national media pounced.
"I knew something was up when The New York Times and The Washington Post started asking me questions and then CNN and then Fox. I was like, 'Oh Lord!'"
Harris' comment to McCain made heavy rotation on national talk shows. And Harris says he's heard from African Americans from across the country now accusing him of being a sellout.
"Most of the stuff that I got in the email was like, 'How can a black man stand up and say that?' Well you know what? I happen to be an American of African descent, but I am a conservative."
And he says he has no regrets.
"I realize that I'm speaking for millions of people. It just so happens that in this racially charged election, the people who look like me happen to be on the other side of the aisle."
Harris' radio show, "The National Conversation" airs weekend afternoons on Newsradio 620 WTMJ.snip

Just ask CW, LP and blinky, all those threats must be coming from the racist rethuglicans.
In actual dollars, President Obamaís $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. Itís no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.
Under Obamaís own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.
