The only explanation for yesterday’s victory by Scott Brown in the Massachusetts senate race is RAAAAACISM!!! It must be. Keith Olbermann* and Howard Fineman issued this piece of brilliant analysis on Olbermann’s MSNBC show last night:
OLBERMANN: The Republicans and the Tea Partiers will tell you what happens tonight with Scott Brown tonight, whether he wins or comes close, is a repudiation of Obama policies, and surely one of Obama’s policies from the viewpoint of his opponents is that it’s okay to have this sea change in American history, to have an African-American President. Is this vote to any degree just a euphemism the way state’s rights was in the 60s?
FINEMAN: Wow, that is a good question.
No, Howard, that’s a lousy question. Because it’s not even a real question. It’s an accusation and a smear dressed up as a question in order to fool the listener into thinking there’s some serious intelligence behind it, much like a prosecutor asks a leading question in order to get the answer he wants. It’s an insult to the people of Massachusetts, who voted for our African-American president by a large majority just 14 months ago. Do you and Keith really want us to think they suddenly woke up yesterday morning and slapped themselves on the head when they realized “Oh, my God! We put a Darky in the White House?” It’s also an insult to conservatives across the nation because it says we support federalism and limited government because we really, secretly, in our deepest, most bigoted heart of hearts want to wear hoods and sheets and burn crosses to keep the Blacks “in their place.”
Oh, and for the record, the sheet-and-hood guys were Democrats.
No wonder Olbermann’s ratings are in the tank and no one reads Newsweak Newsweek anymore.
By the way, driving a truck is also a sign of racism. It’s obvious. I’m surprised everyone doesn’t know this, including my Black neighbor who drives a Ford F-150!
It would take race-detectives Keith and Howie only a moment to deduce he’s a self-hating Uncle Tom.
And some people take these clowns seriously?
*(I first ran across Keith when he was a lousy sportscaster here in Southern California. It’s nice to see he hasn’t changed.)
