Georgia Republican Rep. Lynn Westmoreland calls Obama ‘uppity’

The GOP’s white sheet is showing (again). There’s a reason the RNC has hit a record low in black attendees at its convention. Georgia Republican Rep. Lynn Westmoreland used the racially-tinged term “uppity” to describe Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama Thursday. Westmoreland was discussing vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin’s speech…

Promise Keepers

David Broder writes today on the lost promise of Obama’s changing politics because…well, because he’s a Democrat. If this were just an off night by a speaker we know can soar, it would be no more than a blip on the screen. Obama picked a bad night to be ordinary,…

In Defense Of Fuck

Michelle Malkin doesn’t like the fact that the Fuck Panel called her out by name. She also doesn’t like Arabs, Muslims, the Japanese, liberals, sick kids, craftsmen, Mexicans, troops, Rachael Ray, filmmakers, black people, immigrants, feminists, John McCain, moderate Republicans, Michelle Obama and perhaps saddest of all…herself.…

Sexism and racism – what lies beneath…

NOTE: This is the guest post I have up on Open Left today. I was invited by front-pager Jon Pincus to participate in a mutual guest-blogging series to bring more diverse perspectives to that progressive blog. The subject selected was the treatment of Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama by the…

A Contest!

Twenty dollars to the first person who can give any rational reason why Michelle Obama is mentioned in Maureen Dowd’s latest piece. This isn’t even the failure to write something relevant (the entire article is basically a laundry list of Weird Things The French President’s Wife Did), but Maureen Dowd’s…

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.…

Cookie McCain

I have no earthly idea why first ladies are expected to have recipes for everything – besides the fact that everything on a campaign happens by committee and the ultimate recipe is likely going to be something nobody in the candidate’s family has made themselves in years, if ever, it’s…

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…

Faux News calls Michelle Obama ‘Baby Mama’

UPDATE: Fox News Senior VP of Programming Bill Shine came up with this lame statement: “A producer on the program exercised poor judgment in using this chyron during the segment.” Jesse linked to Atrios’s post on this, but I had to put up something. Last week, E.D. Hill bleated about…

Watch Out For That Tree

Obama monkey dolls? Just…really? I mean…really? If you’re going to… …Really? UPDATE: Via Atrios, Fox News decides that Michelle Obama is Barack’s baby mama. UPDATE 2: I know a lot of people are finding the same small body of information on a or many David Lawsons in Utah – real…
