Yeah yeah... I know the children are “off limits.” Lemme just say this:
White kids can make something look “cute” which, if done by a non-white kid, would be condemned as “gross” or “tacky” or “triflant.”
Watch the clip below. Instant viral-video stardom for Sarah Palin’s youngest daughter! (Which likely will redound to John McCain’s benefit.)
Oh, and another fucking thing about white people: When a black guy gets one, all of a sudden they make a Harvard Law degree something to sneer at? That’s a disqualifier for leadership? Now it’s all about public schools and the PTA?
CNulan tried to tell my dumb ass that the Palin pick was a straight-up GOP “identity politics” move. He saw it right away. It took me until last night.
That’s when I saw a Republican delegate (older white female) tell NBC’s Ann Curry just why she liked Sarah Palin so much: “She’s an American woman. ... I think she's had all the experiences that we’ve had. And she knows what it’s like to live in America.”
I swear... to even keep up with all the race/class/gender shit going on this election season, you have to be world-class good at three- dimensional chess.
