Jonah Goldberg

Jonah Goldberg agrees with me again:

.....And, in fairness, when it became clear that Carter had turned this “debate” from mere fraud to farce, it suddenly dawned on some Democrats, including those in the White House, that smearing millions of constituents and swing voters (many of whom voted for Obama) as racists isn’t the best politics. So one cheer for those who objected to this idiocy too little and far too late.

But others just won’t let go. Maureen Dowd of the New York Times hears Rep. Joe Wilson shout, “You lie!” And her instinctive response is: “Fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken word in the air: You lie, boy!”

It’s the “fair or not” that gives Dowd away. She admits to hearing racism whether or not it’s warranted. That’s called prejudice. And unlike Wilson’s foolish outburst, Dowd’s was carefully considered. Dowd, Carter and Sharpton can’t grasp that conservatives are less hung up on race than they are and that we can get past Obama’s skin color. “Some people just can’t believe a black man is president and will never accept it,” writes Dowd. She’s right. She’s one of them.

Let me say it again for the first time - this latest Democrat racism ploy is a big big mistake on their part. Did they really think they could convince us that we have a racial motive that we don't know about. "Trust me, you're racist." Um, nope. I was against Hillarycare too, does that make me a misogynist?

The corker though is Pelosi putting the back of her hand to her up-tilted forehead and fearing for the safety of the president. Poor poor president. Poor poor Nancy. Why must they live in a country so unworthy of them?
