And you ARE a racist (or at least you have a long history of saying things vaguely racist about black men trying to run for president)
Sayeth you of Jesse Jackson and his 1988 campaign:
Placid of demeanor but pointed in his rhetoric, Jackson struck out repeatedly today against those who suggest his race has been an asset in the campaign. President Reagan suggested Tuesday that people don’t ask Jackson tough questions because of his race. And former representative Geraldine A. Ferraro (D-N.Y.) said Wednesday that because of his “radical” views, “if Jesse Jackson were not black, he wouldn’t be in the race. (emphasis MINE)”
Don’t you hate Nexis Lexis, Geri! Don’t you hate it when you narc on YOU! Don’t you hate it when that happens? I know I do. And by the way you’re still, um, “Not helping!” yourself.
Maybe everyone is a little prickly over the racism/sexism thing in this campaign, but these comments look all kinds of wonky. I can’t tell if your poo-pooing Jesse because he benefited from his stature as a black civil rights leader and minister OR if you’re poo-pooing Barack for being talented and eloquent. But then Jesse was talented and eloquent. So I’m going to go on the record as saying I don’t have the slightest fucking idea of what the hizzell you are talking about.
Please, explain more coherently on a network that is not FOX News, because I try to watch as little FOX as possible.
Thanks Nonie for the tip! I swear, folks are going to make me buy a time machine so I can start pre-slapping the sense into them.
