Arab media on the American elections

From the Angry Arab News Service:

Did you notice: Saudi media are exhibiting clearer preference for Sen. McCain. Why should that surprise you? It is has to do with many reasons including sexism and racism in the royal family. Join me in calling on King `Abdullah to release his slaves.

I can’t imagine why that would be really, unless it simply is the sexism and racism of the Saudis. Maybe they feel like McCain represents something familiar, they know whom they will be dealing with, whereas Obama or Hillary are somehow new and scary. An interesting observation, though.
