On the heels of breaking his pledge to accept public financing and naming as his reason, those big, bad Republican 527s, the Rottenest Man Who Ever Ran, invoked race again last Friday in a warning to his Snowys, saying that Republicans will remind people that, besides his seemingly endless faults, he's also black.
Rush Limbaugh called him diabolical – adding that Obama would literally do and say anything that he considers to be to his advantage. For the record, I described Obama as the Devil some time ago. Now I can't, but maybe someone else can point to some Republican quote reminding people of Obo's semi-blackness?
The liberal media, by the way, almost universally approved of Obama's "tactic."
For my part, what was most disturbing was the reaction of Obo's supporters in the audience – they whooped and cheered, not unlike the congregation behind "Reverend" Wright.
So this Transformer has not only made the campaign about race, but he's set race relations back decades. At least I hope he has. Because to my astonishment, we come to find out, that's where blacks have always been, and whites didn't even know it. I've mentioned that I thought race was behind us, and that I was shocked when the Trinity Church shed light on the numbers and the intensity of black racism. that initial shock has only grown…
Did you catch Spike Lee's comment implying that Obama would turn all of America into a "chocolate city?"
Has Obama made racism mainstream?
Will we have to redefine "rotten' down?
