Politics is Not Pretty

Writing about Obama's small-town Pennsylvania gaffe, Democratic stategist Ed Kilgore characterizes Obama's conservative critics as "hysterical." Funny that, given George Will is one such critic. Will would be sanguine about a Martian invasion.

"The one thing we know for sure is that the Right's reaction is providing a full-on sneak preview of its strategy to defeat Obama if he is the Democratic nominee," Kilgore writes. "And it ain't pretty."

Hard to imagine it will be any uglier than the 2000 NAACP ad comparing George Bush's position on hate-crime legislation to the lynching of James Byrd.

UPDATE: Here's Will's "hysterical" reaction. You be the judge.

UPDATE: Meanwhile, Thomas Sowell recall a lefty kindred spirit and his opinion of the lower middle class:

Fabian socialist George Bernard Shaw included the working class among the "detestable" people who "have no right to live." He added: "I should despair if I did not know that they will all die presently, and that there is no need on earth why they should be replaced by people like themselves."

UPDATE III: Frank J. says, "When Spiderman is bitter, he clings to walls."

Superheroes are not going think that is very funny. OK, maybe the ones at D.C. but not Marvel.

So some white politico has been derided in the Apologist Lib Press and by the Obama campaign because he referred to Obama as a “boy”. Even though everyone involved agrees that there was no racial intent in his words.
“Unity” and “change”?? Sure sounds like more of the same old one-sided Racial Double Standard keeping whites on the egg shell-walking, politically corrected defensive.
See what we get from the “rich diversity” of having a black running for that office.
Here’s what Pat Buchanan had to say about such things: “Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.”

In today’s news on the Obama race front…
A supporter charged that calling Obama “elitist” for his recent remarks is akin to calling him “uppity”. No one knows whether this person was truly offended or if they were just attempting to once again stir racial conflict and keep whites politically corrected and on the racial defensive as so many others have. See how folks have been programmed to be hypersensitive and attack using the Race Sword both offensively and defensively. Thank black activists and their Liberal apologists for keeping racial strife alive and making it an election issue. Everyone who said Obama was taking the high road by keeping race out of this election is either stupid or lying. Certainly his surrogates have not kept race out, and he seems to approve of these racial 527 tactics that keep him the racial victim.
Gotta love all that “unity” that having this Black Candidate run for that office has brought to our nation.
