Who is the Real Barack Obama?

Who is the real Barack Obama?

the new question popping up along the GOP campaign trail today, and the answer among some McCain supporters is telling:

Here's Marc Ambinder's response to the video:

Judging by McCain's slightly startled reaction, he clearly didn't anticipate that reaction, and McCain's in no way responsible for the utterances of anybody in his audience. But he must have some idea of how deeply this fear/outsider/other meme has spread. A tripartite strategy isn't needed...
Who cares what kind of idea he has of this "meme"?

The main thing is that
he's doing what he needs to do: go on the attack against the most left-wing Democratic nominee since George McGovern.
