Beyond parody

MSDNC's Ed Schultz calls Wisconsin's budget -- wait for it! -- "racist" with guest -- wait for it! -- Al Sharpton!

ED SCHULTZ, HOST: Reverend, when you hear that tax dollars would be diverted from all taxpayers to pay for private schooling -- where does that take us in your opinion?

REV. AL SHARPTON, NATIONAL ACTION NETWORK: I mean, thatís the epitome of an insult, Ed. At one level, you have this governor as well as in Ohio and other states and we are talking Wisconsin here, that are talking about what they are dealing with terms of the deficit, in terms of being in the red, the unions, the teachers, everyone gives back. They say weíll concede a lot of these things, we all will sacrifice, take collective bargaining off the table.

Thatís not enough. On top of that, they now want to spend public dollars to give vouchers to private schools for kids that will never ever come from the neighborhoods that most need public education. Iím against vouchers, period. But now to come with this is an insult to add insult to injury, Ed.

SCHULTZ: Well, Iíll say it. This is a racist budget. I mean, anybody with a brain knows that those 82 percent of the kids under the poverty level are never going to go to a private school, and yet the governor wants the parents of those kids to take a portion of their tax dollars and fund private schools. I mean, it is a racist budget. You cannot get around it. Itís picking on the poor. Itís picking on the inner-city kids. How else can you read it?

You can read several ways, idiot, and by all means please do so at the link above!

This is going to be a lot simpler if the Left would just define for me which of their policies (if any) I can oppose without being racist, sexist or homophobic.
