Bernie Mac Goes Low-Brow Barack Obama event

Is this the course of Barack Obama's campaign?

Why is his campaign finding supporters who are racist (Wright and Pfleger), anti-religious (Jesse "The Reverend" Jackson) and off-color, (the otherwise funny Bernie Mac)?

Yup. The Mac went low: menopause, sexual infidelity and promiscuity, and used occasional crude language.

This was a trendy, $2300 a person event drawing in Chicago's economic elite.

According to the AP story linked above, Barack Obama responded:
"We can't afford to be divided by race. We can't afford to be divided by region or by class and we can't afford to be divided by gender, which by the way, that means, Bernie, you've got to clean up your act next time. This is a family affair. By the way, I'm just messing with you, man."
