Well, not really. Remember two things: 1) It's perfectly OK for "progressives" to laugh, mock and giggle at stuff like this, and 2) Republicans/conservatives no matter what will never "win" on racial matters. Anyone remember Mitt Romney's protested sojourn to downtown Philly in 2012? To coin a cliché, "Damned if you, damned if you don't." Mitt was welcome in Philly -- as long as he agreed with "progressive" Democrats there. Yeesh, if there ever was a pattern ...
Giggling all the way, we heard
“Any captions for this one?” Harris-Perry asked her panel.
“One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same,” sang panelist Pia Glenn, adding, “And that little baby, front and center, would be the one.”
Comedian Dean Obeidallah told Harris-Perry that he thought the photo was “great” and that “it really sums up the diversity of the Republican party, the RNC. At the convention, they find the one black person.”
Hilariously, at vid's end, Harris-Perry tells us to stay tuned for the segment "Hey! Was that Racist?" ... apparently never grasping the irony.
UPDATE: "One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same": Here's a pic of Harris-Perry with her parents. She says, “I’ve never thought of myself as biracial. I’m black.” Of course.Posted by Hube at December 30, 2013 06:22 PM | TrackBack
