This is the real racism

Keith Olbermann, on his new cable access show which draws less than 100K viewers in the key age 25-54 demographic, had old pal Janeane Garofalo on to tell everyone that black people who are part of the Tea Party and the GOP suffer from Stockholm Syndrome:

"But, Herman Cain, I feel like, is being paid by somebody to be involved and to run for president so that you go like 'I love that, that can't be racist. He's a black guy, a black guy asking for Obama being impeached.' Or 'it's a black guy whose anti-Muslim. It's a black guy who is a Tea Party guy.'"

"He's a businessman," she said sarcastically. "Who ever pays him. And there may be a touch of Stockholm syndrome. There may be a touch of Stockholm syndrome in there because anytime I see a person of color or a female in the Republican party or the conservative movement or the Tea Party, I wonder how they could be trying to curry with the oppressors. Is it Stockholm syndrome or does somebody pay them?"

Yeesh. There's nothing more racist (and sexist) than "knowing" that blacks, women, or whoever are not acting in what they feel are their best interests.
