Jonah Goldberg has an outstanding article on Real Clear Politics.
Of all the poisonous, ugly, and intellectually vapid controversies ginned up in my lifetime, the current breakout of St. Vitus’ Dance over the “racist” opposition to Barack Obama may be the most egregious.
Al Sharpton tells CNN’s Larry King that decent and racially sensitive Americans shouldn’t let a small minority make health care into a “racial issue.”
Someone in the control room surely yelled, “Cue the laugh track!”
In case you don’t get the joke, this entire “debate” over whether opposition to Obama’s health-care reform is racist is totally, completely, and in every way conceivable an invention of the Left.
Oh, sure, there are some racists who oppose Obama. Shocking news, that.
