White Christians or Star-Bellied Sneeches?

Monday, Oct. 20, 2008 5:53 AM

General Colin Powell endorses Senator Barack Obama, and George Will, Pat Buchanan, and Rush Limbaugh among others claim it's because Obama and Powell are both black. As proof, Limbaugh offers to research how many times Powell has thrown his support behind white liberal candidates with no experience. Because you apparently can't vote for the black rookie until you've voted for the white one.

Limbaugh goes on to suggest that Powell is not being properly thankful to the Massah President Reagan for making him a four-star general. (Limbaugh has also recently suggested that Barack Obama is the end product of a decades-long plot to put a black man in the White House and overthrow white America.)

But, no, there's not a drop of racism in the McCain/Palin campaign.

And one wonders where people like this get their ideas.

Mike Lunkhead Lunsford hung a sheet-covered ghost from a tree in his front yard, decorating it with an Obama sign and a misspelling of Obama's middle name.

Lunsford believes that America is a white Christian nation and it should only be ruled by white Christians.

On Friday, Rep. Michelle Bachmann proposed on Friday that members of Congress should be investigated to ascertain whether they are pro- or anti-America.

Within 24 hours, Bachmann's Democratic opponent received $500,000 in contributions in direct response to Bachmann's idiotic display of McCarthy-era nationalism. And Bachmann's Republican opponent in the primary is encouraging Republican voters to vote for him as a write-in candidate.

Having fired his shot about Bill Ayers at the last presidential debate and achieved nothing, McCain is nonetheless pressing ahead with robocall ads questioning Obama's relationship with Ayers, and continuing with the 'he's not being forthright and honest' pitch - the inevitable follow up to 'serious and legitimate questions.'

So, to recap - there really are no questions, because if you couldn't challenge Obama on this during a face-to-face debate, you've got nothing. And it shows that what you really want is an answer that fits your preconceived narrative.
