Speak Of The Devil

No sooner do we start talking about mentioners of racism being the real racists than the shit starts flying in the presidential race. Is Barack Obama a zombie? No, just a Muslim.…

Blackazoid: The Blackening

David Brooks has done yeoman’s work and given us the origin story of dear Blackazoid. God, Republicans are saps. They think that they’re running against some academic liberal who wouldn’t wear flag pins on his lapel, whose wife isn’t proud of America and who went to some liberationist church where…

Funny how perceptions vary, isn’t it?

Here’s one way to look at something: Obama’s first general election commercial—released on Juneteenth It’s healthy at this time in the campaign to remind people out there being bombarded with slime efforts to evoke images of an “Afro-Leninist,” a Muslim terrorist, or a Black Radical Trojan Horse, when the real…

The shape of things to come

No time for the Friday Random Ten today, but I wanted to draw everyone’s attention to this article about the whisper campaigns against Barack Obama that exploit Americans’ xenophobia and other forms of ignorance. More than any other factor, these whisper campaigns are going to be damaging to Obama’s chances.…

Obama’s first general election commercial — released on Juneteenth

The Obama campaign has tapped North Carolina as one of the states to air this ad; it’s been Red at the presidential level, but NC’s in play this time around. It will also run in Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North…

The Audacity Of Vitriol

Floyd Brown, the originator of the Willie Horton and “Is Barack Obama Lying About Being A Muslim?” ads, is receiving threats and intimidation from Obama supporters. Being the fair minded arbiters of civil order that we are, I’ve decided to highlight some of the worst to show just how awful…

Stuff White People Like #104: Wondering When Minorities Will Stop Doing Weird Shit

Belle Waring notes some hope in the power of Negrosity on the horizon: Mickey Kaus is hoping and Mary Battiata is wondering (the distinction is different, as Kaus seems like a befuddled white guy who just really hates the silly shit some black people do, while Battiata seems cluelessly naive…

Ew, Nazis

A truly bizarre last line from George Will’s otherwise totally phoned-in Friday column: Assuming, not rashly, that Barack Obama wins, 2016 is the next time Hillary Clinton, who will then be 68, can seek the Democratic nomination. By then, the median age of the electorate will be 47, so for…

But…But!

I’m not sure why conservatives keep bringing up the “but this woulda been a senior moment for McCain!” specter when it comes to what they perceive are Barack Obama gaffes (and what actually appear to be some guy behind him continually talking through his speech). The most famous version of…

Faux News’ E.D. Hill’s asinine ‘fist bump’ terror alert

Fox News’ America’s Pulse host E.D. Hill must have gotten an associate-Obama-with-terrorism-at-all-costs memo from upstairs, as she desperately tried to interpret the “fist bump” between Michelle and Barack Obama in a unique segment featuring a “body language expert.” Now I don’t know why the fist bump is worth dissecting, but…
