Truly, deeply creepy. He's so proud of his "hilarious" racism until he realizes he's being filmed, then he tries to erase it by giving his toy to a little boy he doesn't even know, all with this unsettling grin on his face. Gross. And the thing is, you know this guy, even after his evident embarrassment at being busted holding that thing and his skeevy attempt to pretend it never happened, would insist from here to eternity that he "didn't know" it was racist.
Meanwhile, today the WaPo's running a page one story titled: "Issue of Race Creeps Into Campaign." Yeah, that's not actually news (see parts 1-92), but thanks for catching up.
And, once again, I love how pointing out that people are being racist is treated as the equivalent to people actually being racist:
Yesterday, civil rights leader John Lewis, a Democratic congressman from Georgia, became the latest advocate to excite the racial debate, condemning Sen. John McCain for "sowing the seeds of hatred and division" and accusing the Republican nominee of potentially inciting violence.Only in the "both sides are just as bad" world of "objective" journalism is ginning up outrage by perpetrating the lie that Obama is a Muslim terrorist sympathizer just as bad as publicly and unapologetically objecting to that tactic.
