And on the flip side is the immediate rise of Mia Love - how'd that happen? A little conservative Affirmative-Action, maybe? Along with her immigrant story, she's done what - exactly - to afford her the prominent place she's got with the party? I'll wait.
No, Mia's good fortune couldn't be race-based, because we all know she's been struggling in the trenches, while regularly introducing one brilliant political idea after another, right? Right? Riiight. I'll wait to see those, too.
Long story-short, it seems to me Hot Air is guilty of seeing what they want to see - but only when and how they want to see it. Not surprising for a partisan hack site, led by a nut job. BTW - has anybody found Michelle's sister yet? Maybe they ought to check that Scientology concentration camp, in California, everyone seems so intent on ignoring. You never know.
So nope, sorry Guys, but - despite your denials - racial paradise hasn't been achieved yet. Hell, I couldn't even get the Hillbillies at Althouse to shut about it, and the Tea Party is always confessing they don't know what to do, so I don't hold out much hope you ninnies have escaped:
You're all a bit sick in the head.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm getting back to composing some "nigger work songs" for all you "open-minded" types to deny you enjoy. You know how they go:
"Camptown Ladies, sing this song, doo-dah, doo-dah,…"
Of course they don't believe it, because they are special enlightened snowflakes.ReplyDelete
I said it once before, and I'll say it again: everybody is a bit of a bigot -- probably because the thing we are is easier to understand and thus more comfortable, so we can't help but have the bias. I'm pretty sure that taking it to extremes isn't ok (because it can lead to tunnel vision and very bad things) but it might be better than running around denying it and being a flaming hypocrite (which leads to even worse tunnel vision, at least from what I've experienced).
At least the latter usually leads to cooing and oooing over people like Mia Love (or people like Paglia going off on whimsical jaunts about just hanging all cool with her Black friends, for which someone should slap her and is the sort of thing I found really trying when I taught at the colleges...sweet Jesus on a trike, talk about Friends of Barbaro levels of annoying bullshit), because hey, this PROVES folks aren't racist bigots!
Happy, shiny non-racist, non-bigots marching people merrily off to the freight trains...politely and with song! (or a perhaps less innocently jovial nature than "Camptown Races").
*and I don't even want to address the male-female issues; I just give up on that one...when confronted with that I think the best course of action for me is to go smoke, or put on some lipstick, or perhaps both (which is all manner of psychological analysis I'm sure)
