Rhetoric, indeed.

You're nuts.

You made an ugly racist comment.


Do you want a second opinion, you who would be one of my SPED students? Jeez, talk about lack of reading comprehension! Did you ever hear of a concept called context?

I read fine.

Nothing anyone says changes this comment into anything other than what it is.

However, I appear to be the only one offended. Racial epithets against blacks who are conservative is politically correct. It doesn't appear to be anything you should be worried about. The crowd is with you.

Duh! Maybe because it wasn't a racial epithet! Since you are the only one offended, maybe you should re read the title of this thread and look within you.

Besides, didn't you just want to yell at a liberal?

Excerpt from Cornell University site--
Uncle Tom's Cabin was one of the most contested novels of its time. Initially, the novel was criticized by whites who thought Stowe's portrayal of black characters was too positive, and, later, by black critics who believed these same characters were oversimplified and stereotypical. Uncle Tom's Cabin also gave birth to the racial epithet "Uncle Tom," which is still an insult today.

"Tom" directed at black people is an epithet.

Just because other people approve of it doesn't change that.

Yeah, I need to laugh, too. I swear that georgeob is thick as a brick. Almost typed, "Where are snood and cicerone and blatham when I need them?" Actually did and erased it. Could also use gus and dys as well. Bang. Bang. Bang. That's my head and the wall making contact.

"MSM" prejudice against Republican blacks, yeah, really?

You think that the relative lack of attention paid to them might not have had more to do with the fact that none of 'em seemed remotely close to winning all the way through to late October?

I mean, Swann and Blackwell have been behind in the polls in double digits all the way since last June - since the beginning basically. Why would anyone have paid them much attention? Steele meanwhile has made an impressive breakthrough just in the last week, two weeks - but he, too, was down over 5%, usually even 10%, in most polls all the way from April until that time.

Ford, on the other hand, was never much more than 5% behind in the polls, all the way from May till just last week.

Considering how far back these numbers go, I dont think this is a question of chicken and egg. The media paid attention to the candidate who actually appeared to have a shot, and much less attention to those who had been trailing by double digits from the very start. What else would you have excepted them to do?
