And here's a sign despite the hand wringing of Joe Scarborough the conservative purient interest over Rev. Wright is loosing steam.
The off-shoot of the episode of course was Barack Obama's brilliant speech on Tuesday. They must have picked over this like a Thanksgiving turkey two hours into the feast.
Now it all comes down to this from Cheap Shot Charlie Sykes. In referring to the statements about his grandmother and her leariness about black people, Obama chalked these sentiments up to the way an average white person thinks. Clearly an off-hand remark.
Charlie of course felt he struck gold...
Think about it: can you imagine any Presidential candidate, in any context, describing anyone as a "typical black person?" Or a "typical Asian person?" Worse, what Obama said was that the "typical white person" views others of different races with fear and suspicion.And then the payoff pitch:
Obama appears to be digging himself in deeper and deeper.Hardly Charlie. In fact that concluding statement reaks of farce.
Here's a suggestion to enhance the quality of your radio show. Why not talk about real issues rather than the continual fishing for statements which you then magnify into gaffes?
Oh, I'm sorry. When it comes to GOP policies Charlie really can't afford to talk about issues because if people would wake up to the screwing in store for them by his favorite party, even his sheep might wake up from their slumbers in the pasture.
Or maybe Charlie isn't concerned about quality.
