Desperation Row

Today's column for the Daily Banter deals with yesterday's big, booming bombshell -- hyped breathlessly by Drudge, Hannity and Tucker Carlson -- which revealed that the President of the United States is, in fact, black.

Here's an excerpt:

"It borders on tragic that four years into this man’s presidency — a presidency the right has sought over and over again to delegitimize in any and every way possible — this is all they’ve got, not an honest appraisal of his administration’s policies and what they have and haven’t done for the country but a desperate relitigating of the tired claim that Obama was never vetted properly, that he’s got something to hide, that Americans were duped back in 2008, that there are just too many questions surrounding his 'otherness' for him to be where he is right now, much less to be allowed to remain there for another four years."

"the Republicans are losing — they can feel the White House slipping away and they know it. They also know just what an Obama victory means for the demands of the dwindling demographic they’ve unwisely decided to hang their future on. And so they’re having a full-on panic attack — insanely grasping for anything they can find that they might be able to hit the president with in the last month that could change the course of the race and the course of history."

Brilliantly stated Chez. The Republicans remind me of the villian that runs out of bullets and decideds to throw the gun in a last ditch effort that it might actually harm the hero. The world is changing, they can't stop it, and it makes them monkey-fuck crazy.

Such delicious entertainment this is!
