Changed My Mind

Nah, decided not to make a post regarding Rush Limbaugh's blatant racism. I'll let Media Matters do it.

From the February 1 edition of The Rush Limbaugh Show:

"U.S. blacks -- young U.S. blacks believe in politics, according to a new study. "Many U.S. blacks are as confident" -- and we're talking about the clean ones here, folks, I must stipulate this -- young, clean U.S. blacks -- "believe in politics. Many young U.S. blacks are as confident as their white and Hispanic peers that they can use politics to make things better, but a majority of young blacks feel alienated from today's government." Why would that be? The government's been taking care of them their whole lives. Why would they feel alienated from -- maybe "today's government" means the Bush administration.

2 Swings of the bat:

Oh my, you can't see the problem with your statement? So, mimicking racist comments means never having to say you are sorry?

BTW: I read the transcript, he was not. He was off on his own little plantation rant.

Biden was way off base too, but he does not have a history of racist comments like old gas bag, so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, though not my vote.

btw: How's the family?
