>LMAO Say What?

>I had to break out in that special laughter of disbelief when I read the recent offering by Chicago Tribune columnist Dawn Turner Trice. Okay. I will first tell you what she wrote, and see if you catch the line that produce the guffaws in me – and a number of others with whom I shared the column without any hint of my reaction. Here goes.

“(Sarah) Palin is only attractive to women (and men) who appreciate her conservative views; her life-time membership in the NRA; and her anti-abortion stance. But she’s not fooling women who don’t. Women aren’t just blindly going to vote for a sister. Just like blacks won’t blindly vote for a brother.”

Say what?

I don’t even think I had to add my own emphasis to the last two (almost) sentences for anyone to get it.

According to polls, Barack Obama is getting close to 95 percent of the black vote. This is not issue driven. This is racism in action. They ARE voting “blindly” for a brother. The black vote is an extreme example of what Trice claims is not even happening.

As a secondary note, you will see that Trice’s main point is her belief that those supporting Palin are only those who agree with her. Duh! Now there’s a startling piece of insight.

>As you know, this blog is dedicated to “truth, justice and the American way.” In the pursuit of those worthy goals, I occasionally stumble across some things that just make you wounder, like … What do the Chicago Tribune (and Chicago Cubs) new owner, gazillionaire Sam Zell, have in common with bad-boy political pundit and talking head, James Carville, and the delightfully near-sighted Mr. Magoo? Since pictures are worth a thounsand words, allow me to defer to the photographs. I am not sure why I thought this is important enough to put in my blog, or if there is any relevancy, but here it is, anyway. What should we think of this?
