Quote of the week

You may as well cut up that tattered old Race Card, because it’s expired:

Jesse Jackson Jr. is being investigated for giving his wife close to $250,000 in campaign funds. John Edwards is being investigated for giving his mistress approximately the same amount of money (or possibly even more). Two crooks of different colors being investigated by the government. This is post-racial equality, people, where both are being held to the same standard for their despicable behavior.

And Jackson, for one of the first times in his life, is not able to scream RAAAAACIST! and get away with this anymore.

For this, we thank Barack Obama:

Ironically, the people who race-voted in unprecedented numbers to send Dr. Utopia to the White House are the ones who will, in the end, have lost all their mojo and favorite political tools because his “historic presidency” means race-baiting’s effectiveness is now indeed history.

It will take some time for all of this to sink in, as history lessons always do.

    Completely untrue.
    While historical racism is inarguable, and specific incidents no doubt occur, Playing the Race Card is a ritual wholly detached from facts. The cretins will probably argue _greater_ racism occurs, as _revenge_ for BHO’s election.

    “…race-baiting’s effectiveness is now indeed history. ”

    I wish it were so, but that new trick of blaming anyone criticizing BO in racism is becoming quite popular, it seems.

    One of the more exasperating aspects of work is dealing with a small minority of customers who keep trotting out the same credit cards every week even though they know their transactions are going to be declined once they hit the banking system.

    I freely concede that the fact that a card may have no value will not stop a user from trying to get something out of it; I merely point out (as did the guys from Hillbuzz) that it indeed has no value.

    Oh, they’ll go on playing the race card, alright. But now we can laugh at them.
