Lawrence Auster’s right-wing blog is jumpin’ today with news of the Republican vice presidential candidate. I suppose the whole blogosphere is on fire about this one.
But here’s a comment from Auster reader “John B.” (I share it because it’s funny.)
“As someone who knows that his decaying northeast Philadelphia neighborhood will only get more dangerous should Obama be elected, I couldn’t be happier about the Palin selection.
“Palin undercuts McCain’s argument that Obama lacks experience? I assume most persons realize that McCain makes that argument only because he doesn’t think he can get away with denouncing Obama as a Negro Communist.
“The main thing the Palin selection accomplishes is the destruction of Obama’s putative glamour. Now, wonder boy is just a black guy who thinks too much of himself. And the timing: the morning after his speech from Mt. Olympus.
“That such a move would never have occurred to me makes me realize that I just don’t understand how this game is played. Anyway – am looking forward to no increase in the likelihood of my having a knife stuck in my ribs anytime in the next four years.”
