Rich Lowry on Class, Gender, Race, Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama on National Review Online
Lowry’s piece on NRO is a classic. It reminds that accusation of “-ism” does for liberals what sticking one’s finger’s in one’s ears and shouting, “I can’t hear you” does for toddlers: let’s them delay the inevitable while looking like idiots.
In one of his sputtering-mad “special comments” usually devoted to damning President Bush to hell, Keith Olbermann of MSNBC accused Geraldine Ferraro of employing the “vocabulary of David Duke,” and of “insidious racism that is at least two decades old.” Back in the glory days of liberaldom, this would have been like Edward R. Murrow calling Eleanor Roosevelt a fascist – in other words, utter madness.
