Jay Nordlinger nails it:
. . . is that you can’t do it about Obama. You just can’t. The “culture” — the media, academia, etc. — won’t let you. He is off limits. A holy racial object — a holy racial left-wing object. He won’t joke about himself, and others aren’t allowed to. Therefore, he is unjoked about. Unjokable about. Or something.
Remember this past week when Mitt Romney made a cute little quip about his birth certificate? MY GOD! WHAT A NO NO!!
President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign quickly hit back at rival Mitt Romney’s birth certificate joke, declaring that America “doesn’t need a birther-in-chief.”
“Embracing unfounded conspiracy theories, distracting from real issues,” the [new Obama ad] narrator says. (Link)
Yeah -- you mean unfounded conspiracy theories like Mitt Romney hasn't paid ANY taxes in ten years? Like that?
This is what you do when your record is beyond pathetic. You turn obvious little humor bits into political anathema. But if you keep it up, maybe Romney will call your ridiculous bluff and point out that Obama has no one to blame but HIMSELF for the conspiracy theory that is Birtherism. And you can bet this is why he keeps his college records sealed.Posted by Hube at August 26, 2012 11:07 AM | TrackBack
