That “hey, here are conservative chicks talking about dating” post is like kryptonite to boringness! Sadly, No! already beat me to making fun of Cassy “revenues are the new profits” Fiano, but the good news is that Karol Sheinin of Alarming News is ripe for funnin’!
Here she is, talking about the Barack Obama race speech.
I read the excerpts and listened to clips but there’s no way I’m sitting through 40 minutes of this man lecturing me on race in America. I know about race in America. I had one of everyone on my block growing up.
Since she had “one of everybody” on her block growing up, that means she knows everything about race in America! All of it. She had a black and an Asian and a Native American and an Arab! She had the most collectible block ever!
(Seriously, has nobody figured out yet that this argument is the new “black people love us” yet?)
My general impression is that he loves hearing himself speak and that he generally says nothing and makes no overall point. Even this speech, so highly regarded by many is mostly vacant.
It’s a good thing she only listened to clips and read excerpts, because that’s precisely what you need to do to make an accurate judgement about a forty-minute speech. It’s like how we did book reports back in high school without actually reading the book. It’s the Cliffs Notes method of punditry!
What is the audience supposed to take away from it? That we’re all racist? That we all know racists?
Well, yes, that and it’s okay, so long as we make ourselves strive to be better. (That would be on page 12 of the Cliff Notes of the speech. The big, bolded paragraph with the point form comments after it.)
And that somehow make it ok that a potential president has as his spiritual leader a racist, America-hater? I don’t think so.
Well, if Jeremiah Wright was a racist America-hater, she’d have a point. Of course, if she actually went and listened to some of Wright’s other speeches about race, or read the affirmations by his (mixed-race) flock, perhaps she’d know that Jeremiah Wright isn’t a racist, but simply a black man in America who at one point in his life wasn’t allowed to use certain water fountains, and surprisingly that sort of experience sticks with people.
Of course, given that she wasn’t even willing to listen to the full Obama speech, that might be a lot of work for her. I guess it takes a lot of time, you know, posting hyperlinks with one line of commentary as the majority of your daily posts.
Again, Obama’s close affiliation with Wright would be campaign-ending if he were white.
This, of course, is why John McCain’s candidacy has spiralled into oblivion once he chased after Ted Hagee’s endorsement. You know, Ted “all Catholics will burn in hell” Hagee. Ted “Hitler was a Catholic” Hagee. Ted “gay people are to blame for Hurricane Katrina” Hagee. And it’s all because John McCain is white! If only McCain was a black man, he’d have this whole thing wrapped up. It’s so unfair.
