Last Monday, jurassicpork wrote about Chris Matthews' callout of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus
about the party's race-baiting. Tweety has taken a lot of heat for this, because in today's Village, it is a requirement to be deferential to even the most lunatic liars and racists in the GOP, in the name of "fairness." God knows Matthews has had his share of Village moments, most notably in the context of George W. Bush's ridiculous flightsuit stunt
. But it's hard to argue with Matthews when you see something like this, from USA Today
GOP launches 'Obama Isn't Working' message at DNC
he Republican National Committee debuted a new Web video and launched a website, with the theme of "Obama Isn't Working." The website will be updated frequently while Democrats gather here this week to formally nominate Obama to a second White House term.
"Obama Isn't Working." Seriously?
This is a party that had a major candidate refer to this president as "the food stamp president." This is a party whose nominee has dogwhistles to the "birthers". This is a party whose hero talked about "welfare queens in Cadillacs." This is a party that for a half-century has portrayed black people in general, and black men in particular, as lazy, shiftless, and unemployed.
"Obama Isn't Working" is their theme? And Rinsed Penis says this isn't race-baiting? This isn't even dogwhistling anymore. This is screaming so loudly you'd have to be a complete idiot not to get what they're doing.
