McPalin Supporter who called Obama "an Arab" interviewed

The Huffington Post posted a video of an interview the McCain supporter who confesses to Sen. McCain that she's afraid of Sen. Obama because "he's an Arab". In what is now becoming a much replayed video of this election,
Gayle Quinnell told the crowd at a McCain Rally in Minnesota that "Obama is an Arab." McCain took away the microphone but failed to address Quinnell's unabashed bigotry or the incidents of anti-Arab, anti-Muslim and anti-African American bigotry that has become an increasingly regular feature of GOP rallies as the election draws near. "No ma'am," he says. "[Obama's] a decent family man, citizen, that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues."
The HuffPost offered "an interview with Quinnell done via streaming cell phone. Interviewers include Noah Kunin, Senior Political Correspondent from The UpTake, Adam Aigner of NBC News and Dana Bash of CNN."
