I try not to do too many stories where I’m pointing out media bias because it’s such a foregone conclusion that it’s not worth even mentioning. But sometimes it’s just so mind bendingly hilarious that I share it with you just for a good laugh.
This exchange from MSNBC via Weasel Zippers:
MARTIN BASHIR: We have seen an early draft of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s forthcoming oration. Can I quote something from you? “For four years, Barack Obama has been running from the nation’s problems, he hasn’t been working to earn re-election. He has been working to earn a spot on the PGA Tour.” How about that?
LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: Well, we know exactly what he’s trying to do there. He is trying to align to Tiger Woods and surely, the — lifestyle of Tiger Woods with Barack Obama. Obviously, nothing could be further from the truth. They find every way they possibly can to –
How absolutely wacko is that?
Hey, the way I see it is that it’s pretty incredible that America’s gotten to the point where mentioning golf is stereotyping black people. Who’d a thunk it?
And now this next one which, if you can believe it is actually stupider than Lawrence O’Donnell. Chris Matthews on Hardball is talking with NY Mag writer John Hielemann, according to TheRightNewz.
Matthews: “They keep saying Chicago, by the way, you noticed?”
Heilemann: “Well, there’s a lot of black people in Chicago”
So now Republicans aren’t allowed to mention one of the largest cities in America because that’s racist.
So remember golf courses and Chicago are racist. I guess the GOP should just talk about basketball and Atlanta so nobody will get offended.
