Dopey Philly Daily News Letter of the Week

Lora Neal of Philadelphia seems to have a bit of cognitive dissonance:

I'm in total agreement with [a previous letter writer] concerning this country being so racist and bigoted toward President Obama.

George W. Bush ruined this country, and he was never held liable for it because he was a white man living in a white world. But Obama will come out on top because he has the Lord on his side.

If the people in this country would stop being so caught up in the color of a person's skin and follow the lead of the great Martin Luther King Jr. and judge a person by the content of his character, this world would be a better place to live in.

If I've heard that a Republican has "ruined this country" or something similar once, I've heard it a thousand times. Nevertheless, how wasn't Bush held liable? His party suffered a catastrophic defeat in 2008! Nevertheless, Neal's "logic" disintegrates because she wants everyone to "judge a person by the content of his character," yet she calls the country "racist" against Barack Obama ... why, precisely? Because he's been criticized? B-b-b-but ... I thought we were supposed to judge a person by the content of his character!! But since President Obama is [half] black, that criticism is ... racist?

But ... I thought were supposed to judge a person by the content of his character ... !! But ... !!

Yeesh.

"But Obama will come out on top because he has the Lord on his side."

Not to mention this person is arguing for a theocracy.
