Proving once again that they are a complete disgrace, the American cable news media embarrassed themselves beyond redemption last night by taking to new levels their deranged fascination with Vagina-Americans' and M-Fer Americans' respective alignment with "their" candidates. Hopefully no one will tell them about the existence of black women, or their heads might explode.The whole thing is here.
Ironically, I was tuned into CNN for most of the night, where 2000 Al Gore campaign manager Donna Brazile was among the panel of expert pundits. I can only speculate that the reflective shine from Anderson Cooper's famous silver locks refracted the studio light in such a manner as to render Brazile unrecognisable as a black woman to the white men surrounding her.

I've got a new piece up at The Guardian's Comment is Free about the horrendo cable news coverage of the Iowa caucuses last night.
