Because this white Republican’s about to talk about race and politics.
My take on the game of Whack-a-Racist, in light of the George Allen incident this week,in my Examiner column today.
The incident happened Friday. Since then, it’s been worth two stories and an editorial in The New York Times and eight stories — three on the front page — three blog posts, one video, and one forum discussion, in The Washington Post. A Google Blog search for the week shows more posts related to “macaca” than Iraq this week, and Israel just barely hanging on for the overall lead.
Liberal blogger FireDogLake posted a photo of a burning cross and said the GOP is a “JC Penney White Sale away from its cross-burning, lynching, Jim Crow roots.” Just weeks ago, FDL’s proprietor posted a Photoshopped picture of Joe Lieberman in blackface on the Huffington Post.
All right, slow down, everyone.
Unrelated but fun, we’ve now got Cox&Forkum on our Funnies page at Townhall, just added to our collection of conservative cartoonists. Love those guys (it is two guys, right? Or, is it tricky like Lynyrd Skynyrd?).
Update: Dear, sweet Lord, what are you thinking?!?
You sound like Dusty Baker.
Update: Hey, look at me. I’m the No. 2 read on Examiner, right behind “Hybrid Mutant Found Dead in Maine.” Well, I can’t very well compete with that.
