If fisking MSNBC is considered to be punching down then what would hitting Curret TV be considered?
The issues that Janeane Garofalo has with Herman Cain is less ideological than it is her revealing her bigotry.
It's a soft bigotry but it's still bigotry.
Herman Cain, I feel like, is being paid by somebody to be involved and to run for president so that you go like ‘I love that, that can’t be racist. He’s a black guy, a black guy asking for Obama being impeached.’ Or ‘it’s a black guy whose anti-Muslim. It’s a black guy who is a Tea Party guy
Her noted objections aren't about policy but about the color of Cain's skin. She just can't handle a minority whose politics are different from hers. So what does she do? She closes off her mind to that possibility because it's obviously someone else fault why Cain is conservative.
And I feel like wouldn’t that suit the purposes of whomever astroturfs these things. Whether that be the Koch brothers or Grover Norquist or any anything. It could even be Karl Rove. ‘Let’s get Herman Cain involved so it deflects the obvious racism of our Republican party
Ah ha! The usual list of suspects is trotted out. Because to her, a black man can't have independent thoughts but must conform to the groupthink of the collective. Otherwise, someone has 'gotten' to him.
She can't handle it if they stray off of the Democratic Plantation. Hence her bigoted verbal whipping.
