I've found myself watching MSNBC more and more. As stated earlier, it has been like discovering a sophisticated culture that hasn't discovered The Wheel. I'm fascinated by the mindset there.
Where else but MSNBC can you find stuff like this?
How did Obama change Matthews' perceptions? By being articulate? Not wearing his pimp suit? Voluntarily leaving all his bitches and Ho's back at the crib for the State Of The Union?
I'm from an area known as The Most Southern Place On Earth. I've heard some racist statements in my time. This was one of them. Good lord in heaven, can you imagine if Bill O'Reilly or even Larry King had said this?
One last thing on the State Of The Union.... Have you ever heard such a clumsy mishmash of bewildering wealth transfers? We're going to take away the stuff we earlier gave to the unpopular group (banks) and give it back to the larger group (you) in the form of a popular goal (free healthcare) that has an unpopular form (Obamacare)?
We're going to give tax breaks to small businesses (good) and working families (good) and pay for it by taxing large businesses (bad) the same way we always have, and eliminate tax loopholes for people who don't poll well (bad)?
It just went on and on and on. The Bush tax cuts (bad) created this mess, so we're going to enact more tax cuts (good). If we could only find the perfect theft ratio, our problems would be solved.
I haven't thought of Obama as black in a long, long time. Race is irrelevant.
There are other, more descriptive adjectives available.
