Just In: Fox News Racist Lede Evincing GOP Collective Mental Meltdown
Apparently the Wingnuts have gone completely into Bizarro World at the prospect of having a Black Democrat as President of (these here) United States of America. Malkin is throwing an hourly hissy fit about ACORN, Hannity invites a verifiable psychotic on his show as an expert witness on Obama and just won’t shut up about Ayers. We’ve got the hard right talk show hosts fighting with the conservative print columnists over criticisms of McCain’s campaign strategy (or complete lack thereof). Instapundit’s partner is talking about some nutty form of protest pulled from the pages of an Ayn Rand novel.
Come on, people, it isn’t like the US is going to sink into the ocean because a Black man is President. Yes, things will be a little different, you’ll have to rethink and reset. But seriously, he’s just a bit to the left of Bill Clinton, whom we must all admit was a die hard centrist. The boat will not be rocked all that much, it’s only that the ship will be righted. Calm down.
Fear of a Black Planet? Perhaps not. Fear of a Black President? Hmmm.
