Raising Kaine and the Webb Campaign

It is odd that on October 31st, the Jim Webb blog, Raising Kaine, referred to S.R. Siddarth as S.R. "Macaca" Sidddarth (but have since revised it). See Giving the fact that they and many opponents of George Allen claimed that Macaca was equivalent to using the N-word why on Earth would Lowell Feld (the site operator) post that? Would someone post S.R. "n-word" Siddarth on a website? No ,of course not, that would be racist. This just demonstrates most people including the Webb campaign recognized that Macaca was not the n-word but were willing to exploit the situation regardless of the merits of the accusation.
