Audacity of Hoping the race card works! August 1, 2008

If anyone had doubt that Barack Obama is a younger, old-time Democrat Demogague, listen up:

So what they’re [anyone too stupid to consider me, mostly Republicans] going to try to do is make you scared of me. You know, he’s not patriotic enough. He’s got a funny name. You know, he doesn’t look like all those other Presidents on those dollar bills, you know. He’s risky. That’s essentially the argument they’re making.

Or, we can believe Joseph Palermo, on the Huffington Post, when he pens this today:

This election should be a referendum on eight miserable years of misrule by the Republicans. But the descendants of white people who used to picnic at lynchings are coming out of the woodwork — with the active encouragement of the McCain campaign. This silent army that is connected not only to the Republican Party’s Southern wing but to white supremacist groups like the Council of Conservative Citizens (C of CC) needs no marching orders from Fox News, the McCain campaign, or the Republican National Committee. They know that if they cannot muster the resolve to stop a black man from becoming the president of the United States then what is the value of white privilege? McCain is carrying the torch to keep “hope” alive that wealthy white men will continue to be the center of the world.

Wow…liberal white guys like Joe must feel very guilty about their race (or something, manhood, maybe) to believe that crap. I can’t make this stuff up, folks. Nevertheless, however bad that is, here’s more quotes from Barack, the audacity-master:

I cannot swallow whole the view of Lincoln as the Great Emancipator.

I opposed the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996. It should be repealed and I will vote for its repeal on the Senate floor. I will also oppose any proposal to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban gays and lesbians from marrying.

I’ve got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.

It’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

The fact that my 15 minutes of fame has extended a little longer than 15 minutes is somewhat surprising to me and completely baffling to my wife.

Well, the last one is the most truth I’ve heard from him in….ever!

On a broader playing field, business is finally waking up to what it might be like to have a Democrat in the White House plus Democrat control of Congress. You must read this Wall Street Journal report:
